I have accepted a job position in Gladstone and will be doing fly in fly out work but I may be gone for 2 to 4 weeks at a time.
As most of you know I have quite a number and selection of plants which takes alot of effort to care for even for an avid gardener like myself.
Edward has said he would like to keep our garden going while I am away but there is just to much for him to care for on his own.
I have offered some plants to Warren Goodlet for…Continue

While I was at the LFG community crop swap I noticed something that made me a little sad. I noticed that apart from children 10 and under I was quite possibly the youngest person at the event and that most people were 10, 20 and 30+ years older than me.
Where are all the "young people". It makes me sad that people my age are missing out on all the benefits and joys of having a garden because it Too hard or they have better things to do with their time.

I recomend that anyone that uses peat pellets and jiffy pots to raise seedlings check out seller tranquil_garden on ebay. I have been using their pellets and pots for some time now and i now have a 97% success rate up from 70% using other brands.

Gary also sells plastic pots and…Continue

Does anyone know any experts on fruit trees? Particularly peaches? my Aunt has planted a grafted bare-root Okee Dokee peach/nectarine last winter.
- Is it necessary to prune off all growth/watersprouts under the height of the nectarine graft in order to encourage growth above the graft?
- Re winter pruning, when exactly should this be done? I believe it's supposed to be after leaf fall but before flowering. But then aren't you just pruning…
