Soanum capsicoides devils apple - Hi Markmelb, I'm kind of shocked to hear that the eggplant dies back every winter.

Drumstick tree - Hey again Rusty, Did you get pods after flowering for the first time or was it the year after? Have been keeping a close eye on my plant and entire flowering clusters are drying up and dropping off...along with the green, tiny pods (10-15mm). Still lots ..42 days 1hrs
Please identify this plant - Hey All, I didn't know what this fruit was and still don't know for sure. I didn't even know what a 'Sygyzium' was either so it made me even more interested to find out. So I started to google all the Syzygiums mentioned. Wow!! So many different types..42 days 10hrs
Poinciana delonix regia - Hi Rebekah, If you are asking whether they are poisonous then I am quite certain they are not. I've heard distant family members discussing how to prepare the actual seeds for some delicacy dishes from older times. Have never seen or tried it though bu..42 days 11hrs
Compost bugs - Hey All, Apart from kitchen scraps, will the BSF larvae consume garden waste as well? By garden waste I am particularly meaning grass clippings and dried leaves? Mainly brown matter though. I don't want to add a layer of brown matter if it will slow th..42 days 12hrs
Pea eggplant seeds - Hey Brenda and Graham, I still have some Solanum Chrysotrichum seeds available. If you are only after the pea eggplant (solanum torvum) for rootstock then this variety will also get the job done. However, if you are wanting pea eggplants for eating - ..42 days 17hrs
Need help identifying plant2 - Hi Helen, I think that is called a Malabar Spinach. Good plant to have around as it is very healthy for you - if you can get past the slimey texture. ..42 days 22hrs
Soanum capsicoides devils apple - Hey All, Markmelb - Dunno if you're still around the forum but... Great looking eggplant trees you have there. The best I've seen amongst Australian growers.

Where can i get a devils fig - Hi all, Dammit! Dammit! All my Kermit F1 and Italian heirloom seedlings are dead. I'm so shattered and pissed at myself! Silly me forgot and left them in the sun too long while I was hardening them up. That's going to set me back at least 6-8 weeks now..46 days 15hrs
Dandelions - Hey all, That really IS amazing Rev. Six years later and it is everywhere now. I don't think anybody would have much trouble finding it nowadays. I cut it back monthly or whenever needed to stop overgrowth. Also to keep the shoots nice and tender ..47 days 14hrs
Veggie id arbuzeh - Hi Farouk, I'm not certain but them flower tips/seed buds on the top and shape of leaves make it look like some sort of Amaranth. There are many types of Amaranths around the world. Some are even considered weeds here in vegetable gardens. However, mos..48 days 11hrs
Dwarf jacaranda tree - Hey all, For myself, all early memories of Jacarandas are of playing fort, cubbies with rope ladders, climbing up the main trunk and off onto the side/horizontal branches that were big enough to scoot along on my backside. Balancing and walking uprigh..49 days 15hrs

Fruit treesdon webercitrus springs fl - Hey all, Thanks jackfruit for the info. After reading your reply I am no longer sure if my rootstocks are the Flying Dragon.
