Pineapple Plantation

OK, so plantation may be slightly too grand a description of the pineapples we have growing in the garden bed beside the front steps.

Pineapples

Live in a warmish climate with moderate rainfall or supplementary water?  Next time you buy a pineapple, save the top and plant it.  In about 18 months you will have a pineapple.  In the meantime you will have a stylish, decorative plant.  I expect that you can grow them in a pot as well.

We live not far from the pineapple farms in south-east Queensland so thought we would have a pretty good chance of success.  Our first attempt was picked about 12 months ago and now a couple of these are getting close to maturity.  We will definitely be continuing to grow pineapples in the future.
