Strawberries cambridge rival - Diggers have them back in stock, just got a notification from their web service. ..5 days 20hrs
Kiwiberry hardy kiwifruit - Looks like whitefly damage to me. Odd that it's not on other plants also, my parsley looks like this at the moment. If you don't have whitefly this year then I will be very surprised, it has been epidemic in the western suburbs. Cheers, Gabby..472 days 23hrs
Kiwiberry hardy kiwifruit - Been following this with interest, would love to hear your thoughts on the fruit. I am putting in the footings for my pergola on Saturday and want to decide what kiwis I plant. How big are your plants, need to get an idea of how many I can fit 😁 ..513 days 24hrs
Kiwiberry hardy kiwifruit - Hi Linton, wonder if sulphate of potash will promote flowing, worth a try before next spring/summer. Was just looking to find info on what time of year they flowered and found this which is very informative, it mentions the pruning regime for fruit produc..785 days 21hrs
Kiwiberry hardy kiwifruit - Thanks Linton, isn't it a cute little guy. I will contact you in late November then, see if I can't get you to give me a birthday present :) Then I can share cuttings the year after if all goes well. Cheers Gabby..1115 days 22hrs
Magnolia grafting - Hi, it won't work, you can only graft other prunus species (eg. apricot, plum, a different cherry, almond, peach, nectarine) onto a prunus root stock, and even then some may be incompatible, or take but have a weak graft union which blows off in a big sto..1116 days 10hrs
Fabric pots - Actually now that I look the apples were planted there in 4/6/2013 and I visited 8/9/2015, they have grown very fast!! http://gibside.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/apple-tree-tuesday.html ..1117 days 11hrs
Fabric pots - In my opinion the reason the bags work above ground is that the roots die when exposed to air hence "air pruning" in the description. If the bag is buried then it will no longer "air prune" and you will sever a stack of roots when you dig it up to move h..1117 days 11hrs
Even growth on double graft - I think your lemon is growing lime not yet, the photo shows how the lime leaf on the left has a bit of leaf type material sticking out on either side of the stem (winged petiole) and the lemon on the right does not, (the coulour difference is nitrogen def..1117 days 11hrs
Kiwiberry hardy kiwifruit - Hi Linton, Where did you get your Ken's red, or are you willing to share cuttings? I am on the western side of Melbourne, but happy to come for a drive if you are willing to share. Thanks Gabby P.S. Also happy to share cuttings/divisions of my..1118 days 8hrs
Prunus mume - Hi everybody, I do not have any plants, the budwood I was sent died. Sorry to disappoint but I will let you know if that changes. Thanks Gabby..1260 days 19hrs
Prunus mume - Hi all, I have not been successful with my grafting, I am not sure if it was the wrong time of the year or if i ruined the budwood by putting it in the fridge rather than the crisper (apparently the fridge is too cold and the crisper is a better temp)...1367 days 12hrs
Lemon tree17 - I would be worried that it might make the pH more alkaline which is not good for citrus. The reason being that ash is alkeline. If you have a pH test kit use it, if not go and get one they are under 20 bucks from garden centres. You will have to give y..1632 days 17hrs
Corky bark oak suber - Hi Domenic, I don't have any seedlings for cork oaks only English oaks (Q. Robur) send me an email my username with no spaces at gmail dot com if you want me to post you one. I am in Vic you might want to check quarantine rules if you are interstate. I a..1663 days 14hrs
Garlic - Thanks Julie good suggestion, but we have recently decided to move, the plaster has started falling off the ceiling and the landlord is not interested in fixing it!!!! The soil is probably to blame, it is a horrible slimy grey clay that I have poured bag..1676 days 12hrs
