It takes a very green thumb to grow avocados in Canterbury.
Accessible Properties tenant Vaine has a four-year old avocado tree that he planted from a seed.
There’s no sign of fruit just yet, but it can take eight years and if anyone can do it, Vaine can.
A talented gardener, he grows his own vegetables and fruit and takes great pride in his lemon tree.
It is always a pleasure to see what he produces.
