    Have you tried googling it with 'site:.au' at the end of your search terms? This will bring back only Australian sites which meet your search terms.
    eg "Pongamia site:.au"

    The Pongamia is a tropical tree. You may have difficulty in growing it successfully in Melbourne

    Hi

    thanks i will try that search option.

    yep its a warm climate tree but it states it can tolerate just below 0 and i live near the coast and very rarely get frost.

    i'm hoping to get a good growth rate as it grows so damn fast normally.

    thanks
