    any ideas?

    Victory garden
    so someone keeps moving my hose. I think I know who it is (or whose kid it is anyway) and I have already talked with him and he said his son got in trouble for it. (But if the son is getting in trouble why is it not only moved but detached from the soaker, as well as plugged into their hose once?...

    What's going wrong with my dogwood?

    Cornus Midwinter Fire and Cornus Midwinter Fire - cuttings Dying
    This Cornus Sanguinea is a joy in the early spring, but the early growth has turned black and started to die. The leaves are also a bit more yellow than is healthy. This has happened before, and the plant recovers, but not with the vigour of growth needed for really electric stem colour. All of t...

    Cross Pollination Crap Shoot

    Backyard Vegetable garden
    I’m getting more and more confused. Five years ago I netted and cross-pollinated a Jimmy Nardella and a Red Marconi Pepper. I harvested the seeds from both plants, and planted them the next year to see what would happen. The Marconi seeds didn’t result in much of a difference, but ...

    Sprouted Seed Potatoes - Should I buy?

    Hello, I am new here but it looks great. I have a question I haven’t been able to really find an answer to. I was down at the hardware store and they have the spring bulbs at 75% off. Ends up being pretty cheap. But the seed potatoes are all sprouted, some with quite a lot of growth. If I s...

    Broccoletti / Cime di rapa (not broccolini): How and when to harvest?

    I was delighted to find broccoletti seedlings in Auckland as we’d really enjoyed eating them in Italy. They’ve grown really well and are now about 30cm high and bushy after 5 weeks. When should I reap them? Can I take a leaf now and then and preserve the plant for longer? Or do I t...
