About My Edible Backyard

Why Julie Love's Edible Plants


Julie says... [2850 days 13hrs 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.

Julie, I would love some seville seeds if you can spare them thanks Rick

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

Plant identifcation - Manfred, are you saying that vinca is invasive? I've never found it so. Haven't grown any for years, as they seem to die on me for no apparent reason. And I'm a careful gardener! ..21 days 12hrs

Trees bonsai bags - Fruitylicious1, the Bonsai bags are rather different to grow bags. I don't think they get any larger than 20l unless there has been a change. Read the article 'Trees in Bags' to find out more about Bonsai bags...56 days 16hrs

Lemon tree disease - Scales are pests, not a disease. Try spraying with white oil on a cool, preferably cloudy day. I would say the ants were attracted to the scales. There are also quite a few yellow leaves. This is a perfect time of year to give your tree a good feed. ..84 days 15hrs
When are bacon avocados ripe - Avos are not usually left to ripen on the tree. When the stem/stalk turns a light lime green you can pick them and let them ripen inside. An avocado grower told me years ago that leaving them too long on the tree affects next season's fruit. ..84 days 15hrs
