Feijoa7 - Julie that's the advantage in a cool climate!!..2727 days 10hrs
Some suggestions - I have to admit that now I'm even more confused. OK the Americans have strange measurements but calling subtropical climate Mediterranean?? I think the Upper Mountains are cool temperate. And you cannot compare this to England because we have so much m..2728 days 6hrs
Feijoa7 - Maybe I'll put some very cheap acacias in and small feijoas. And something else, mabe bamboo. I prefer to mix things. Are the cultivators of feijoas as sturdy as the others? I yet have planted three of the very usual ones bought at out local nursery on..2728 days 6hrs
Paw paw tree - Phil, what did you do to germinate them? Heat? We're in the mountains maybe it was too cold. How long do they take to germinate? We cannot grow the papaya-pawpaw here it is too cold. So I might try to start seedling a second time...2728 days 6hrs
Newly planted orchard1 - Wayne, never heard of rose jam or flowers in the salad? That does not mean that we do eat all our flowers, but a garden without flowers can't be! BTW, roses are the preferred food of our sheep...2729 days 4hrs
Some suggestions - I don't want to criticize, because the forum is great as it is, but I have two suggestions: In the forum, on the right side where the poster's name and location is i would like to see the climate zone(cool/temperate/subtropical/tropical or however you ..2729 days 4hrs
Paw paw tree - I would like to buy a paw paw tree, I mean these American ones. I once bought seeds and it didn't work out either they didn't come up or the slugs got them...2729 days 4hrs
Feijoa7 - We have strong cold winds and it's clear that in spring we need to plant more windbreak plants. I think feijoas are suitable as they don't drop their leaves. Are the cultivators as tough as the original form? I would really prefer planting the cultiva..2729 days 6hrs
Newly planted orchard1 - I tend to cram everything in. Instead of mowing around the trees I would maybe plant something. Flowers or rhubarb or berry bushes, strawberries, herbs probably everything mixed together. It's maybe less work than mowing around all these trees. Your gar..2729 days 6hrs
Rideon mower - I would opt for the four legged version which gives wool, milk and mutton. I bought my husband a "stand by" mower, scythe in old English. Works well and he's happy with the version they sell it at scytessustralia...2731 days 7hrs
Newly planted orchard1 - It looks as if you want to cage the trees against birds!..2731 days 10hrs
Horsetail - Thanks, I looked in an older Australian herb book, and they say put it in a pot and prune it right down in summer to keep it from going wild. ..2731 days 10hrs
Horsetail - I know it's an awful weed, but horsetail is as well a very useful herb. And I promise I will plant it in a container - but I really would like to have this plant. Are either the seeds or the plants sold anywhere?..2734 days 6hrs
Aronia - I read about Aronia, however I never tasted that fruit. It is more for the cold climate gardeners here. Finally I have found a source for that plant (not the seeds) https://www.frogmoregardens.com.au There are cultivators but I reckon you won't find t..2735 days 11hrs
