Hey Andrew, if u already have your answer oops but i am working through the
emails step by step haha.........

They grow in my area of Australia, SE Queensland, I know Sandiago well, I
had a girlfriend near u & have visited, i think they would grow easilly
there.....Conditions are similar to here, it can be a bit dry at times &
warm pretty much all year. We do have a short very cold snap in winter & a
bit more rain fall than u
Best of luck
