About My Edible Backyard

Why Julie Love's Edible Plants


Julie says... [3027 days 6hrs ago]
If I am going to use precious water and fertiliser, I want to eat it. But I like growing edible plants because I grow them organically, so they are not treated with synthetic chemicals. But I also grow a few flowers - food for the soul!

Somehow the name of this got lost. It is called Southern European spinach. In Italy it is known as spinach.

Hi Julie, I know you haven't used this account in a while but since it's the right season thought I'd check in and ask if you have any Sevilles fruiting? I'd love some seeds and would be more than willing to pay you for the trouble! Cheers

Leaves1 - A photo would be useful. Some nutrient deficiencies are hard to tell apart, eg magnesium and manganese. Best not to feed the tree till you are sure you know what it needs. This a useful site: www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/agriculture/horticulture/citrus ..22 days 7hrs

Hedge plants not growing - 5 is pretty low, so not construction waste then. Acidity may be the problem, but it will be interesting to compare to the ones growing well. Whenever a plant is not doing well, and I know it has been cared for, I reach for the pH kit. So often it turns..35 days 8hrs

Bare tree roots - I had a Rangpur lime that looked like this. I covered the roots with compost and it was fine. Just go up to the trunk and no further - probably OK to leave some of the root exposed. BTW, you have a few nutrient deficiencies there. I would give it tra..41 days 11hrs
Bare tree roots - I would mulch it well. You won't get collar rot in the roots, only if it comes in contact with the trunk. The roots are usually covered anyway...43 days 7hrs
Hedge plants not growing - It may be worth checking the pH around the duds and comparing to the ones growing well. Could be construction waste dumped at some point. They look more like pittosporum species eg 'screenmaster' to me, but it's a bit hard to see...43 days 7hrs
Cardamom5 - What is cardamom ginger? Haven't come across that one. I used to have cardamom,which grew prolifically, but I was told it would never seed where I live. It needs a truly tropical climate to bear fruit...53 days 14hrs
Bush lemonmandarin - Mine are around 2.5 cm. the tree is seedling grown, not from cuttings, so that may make a difference. It has a smooth skin, definitely not puffy. Maybe the particular variety of mandarin they crossed with would account for variations? My plan was to ma..58 days 7hrs
Tamarillogrowing from cuttings - I have noticed commercial Tamarillo growers here in WA grow them under shade cloth, so they may not need full sun - depending on your climate,..58 days 7hrs

June bug larvae - They don't look anything like the Christmas beetles I know, which are much prettier. Also, Christmas is in December, so why did you call them June beetles? These are the ones I'm familiar with, and don't appear to cause problems for gardeners. htt..64 days 6hrs
