Rabbit eyes blueberries selection - Thanks Tomoz, both the Blue rose & Denise have flowers forming. What if I move them to the south side of the house in a draughty lane next Autumn? I dont know why Nurseries sell plants in areas that are unlikely to be any good, damned annoying!..1758 days 22hrs

Oca nz yams oka - As a previous successful grower of ocas in Victoria, I find them frustratingly difficult in Bunbury climate so much so that unless you are absolutely determined to succeed at all costs, I would forget them! They obviously grow in the very temperate region..2243 days 10hrs
