    I've seen them for about $100. If you try a water tank maker they often sell them too...

    Thanks I went to bunnings today and the largest size which is what I'm after was $279 I'm hoping to find one cheaper than that.

    We are drowning in mandarins!!
    I've made mandarin and orange cake, mandarin and choc chip muffins, mandarin and sultana muffins! I've peeled and frozen segments...

    Going to take a bag to my mum's tomorrow.

    And there are still HEAPS of green ones! Plus the lemonade and lemon trees are full of starting-to-ripen fruit but we usually juice and freeze that.


    We also have pumpkins that will be ready to pick in a couple of weeks. And heaps of other vegies popping up

    DH is the gardener here, I just pick and eat/cook!

    Do you trim your citrus? My mandarin tree has taken ages to get a good size fruit and I'm thinking of just trimming them back and starting again....

    Anyone done that?

    My DH is a horticulturist so you should see my garden after he gets a little trim happy

    But I might trim them down and see if I can bring them back to life, we've lived here a year now and my limes are the best I've had here!

    I should receive some seeds in the post today so I'll be sowing okra, brandywine tomatoes and new Zealand spinach this evening.
