      Hi, reviving this thread...

      How about a grafted Guava tree, do they have invasive root system? I would really like to plant one in our small pocket garden for medicinal purpose, as well as for their fruits, and they look good as well.

        By all means GO GO GO, nice to have 1 or 2 grafted guava tree in a backyard specially the variety that bears big guava fruits, also known as " GUAPPLE ". Having their kind of fruits will supply you with lots of vitamin Cs.

            Bro, another one is to have a Papaya tree in one corner of the garden, the "solo" variety, you will be surprised and amazed when that tree starts to bear fruits at 4 or 5 feet tall.

                They are called " BUHO ", usually with standard diameter size of 1 1/2" to 2" and are
                very light in weight.

                    Reviving this thread again..

                    Lately I've been planting grafted dwarfed fruit bearing tress on my terrace..this includes guava, guyabano, mango, american lemon, calamansi, santol, mangosteen, papaya, and dwarfed sweet tamarind. Hoping to see their fruits in the coming months even if they were planted only on big plastic drums and as promised by the sellers . Bought most of them in Samplaloc Tanay but the sweet tamarind and mangosteen were from Talisay Batangas.

                      So nice to know bro Armand that you are not just a good wood worker but also a lover
                      of fruit trees. Just hope you have enough space for the manggo, santol, sweet tamarind and
                      the mangostene, these are still be considered to grow big even though they are dwarfed in the sense, yes they will bear fruits in a short period of time, faster than the regular un-grafted fruit trees.

                      Anyway just continue caring for your fruit bearing trees and soon it will be bearing fruits for the
                      whole family to feast and enjoy !!

                        Because the trees are planted in plastic containers don't forget to fertilize it every so often. You can either go organic or chemical or a mix. Plus because it is in a enclosure you will have to check if it is getting enough water to survive during summer.

                          i have been reading a lot about gardening this last few weeks. besides fruit trees which has a lot of other benefits to the owner other than its looks and the shade it gives, one should also consider other trees that has other benefits ... one tree that i'm particularly interested in my readings is the Neem Tree (not sure if the tagalog for it is "maranggo" tree) which is a native of india and indonesia ... it has a lot of bennificial uses, one of which is being a natural pesticide to about 200+ known insects, including mosquitos ... i hope i can find such a seedling here in gensan so that i can plant it in my backyard ... cheers

                            my in-laws visited our place yesterday afternoon and in our discussion about gardens, they mentioned that they have a neem tree (already big) planted in their backyard. they are also aware of the benificial qualities of the neem tree which is why they planted it in their backyard. i told them to make me 3-4 grafts of the tree so that i can also plant it in our backyard :-) ... cheers

                            i just got my neem tree (2 seedlings) yesterday. i transferred them into large used cement bags for the time being while i decide where to place them permanently in our backyard. i need to plan it properly so as to avoid over crowding when all these tress starts to mature. lately, my wife also planted some fruit trees (e.g. rambutan, guyabano, papaya, etc) in our backyard without telling me :-) he he he ... cheers

                          How about planting Banaba trees ? Ylang Ylang trees (not the dwarf variety )? are their roots also destructive if we plant them in front of our houses here in Manila

                            @ petermagboo, as much as possible, avoid banana trees. they are like magnets for mosquitos based on my experience ... as for the ylang-ylang (not the dwarf variety), just take note, as these trees are planted along the hi-way road in our area, they really grow to quite a very tall tree (e.g. 2x that of an electric post). if you plant them in front of your house in Manila, then you will have to prune the trees every year to limit it's height and let it's branches spread horizontally for shade ... cheers

                            Thanks for the information. But I am referring to the Banaba Tree and not banana tree. The banaba trees have purple flowers and look amazing when its full of flowers. Are the roots destructive ?As for the ylang ylang, other than pruning the tree, are the roots also invasive/destructive?

                            @ petermagboo ... pre, sorry for the wrong reply, i thought it was "banana" and not "banaba" ... anyway, rosy has already provided his feedback below ... cheers

                          I've got nothing against planting few varieties of banana trees if you have enough space in your property, just make sure you keep them surroundings clean and tidy. We have several in my property and enjoy yearly produce of Saba, Turdan or Lakatan.

                          Ylang Ylang, what do you get from this huge tree but only the fragrant flowers, as for shades, I do not know cause my sister has one planted in her property and its not shady at all, sort of very similar to a Kapok tree with very large trunk and very tall, taller than a coconut tree.



                          Enjoy your plants !!

                            to rosy,

                            the fragrant flowers of ylang-ylang are superb. I am just wondering if I plant it near the house, if it is really big, would the roots destroy my fence ? wall ? or drainage pipes ?. Thanks

                          @ petermagboo,

                          Sorry about the Banaba tree, my bad for responding immediately too with regards to Banana plantings.

                          Anyway, with regards to the Banaba tree, yes it produces very beautiful clusters of purple flowers when in bloom, really very attractive, only just that one have to be " masipag " on sweeping the surroundings for it sheds its leaves constantly. Another good thing about this tree is that its known as a medicinal tree, the leaves, bark and roots are used to cure some ailments. Worry not about its roots, they are not invasive and destructive. We have two of this tree in our property.

                          Roots of the Ylang-Ylang are ok, not invasive or destructive too but better to plant it not less than 5 meters from the house. But of course avoid planting any kind of big or large trees near fences or drainage pipes, roots are roots and you cannot control where they will spread as they grow.



                          CHEERS !!
