Sizing guide

Acacia Mearnsii, affectionately known as the Black Wattle, is a native Australian tree that not only showcases the country's rich botanical heritage but also epitomises the unique charm of our land. With its delicate, fern-like foliage and vibrant, golden-hued blossoms, the Black Wattle bestows an air of elegance upon any landscape it graces. Each swaying branch and fluttering leaf seems to whisper stories of our sun-kissed plains and ancient landscapes, making it a living testament to Australia's extraordinary flora.

Planting and Growing

Choose a sunny or partly shaded spot in your garden for the Acacia Mearnsii. It thrives in well-draining soil but can adapt to various soil types. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball and place the tree at the same depth it was in its container. Water generously after planting to help it settle. While Black Wattles are drought-tolerant once established, they benefit from regular watering during the first year. Prune the tree as needed to remove dead or damaged branches and to maintain its desired shape.

Caring and Maintenance

Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the tree to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and deter weeds. Generally, Black Wattles do not require heavy fertilisation. However, you can apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring to promote healthy growth.
