I picked up some seeds from a GV  last year at Rogers. The pods for brocolinis and bok choy looked the same so I am not sure which one was which.

I was told by the local community garden to soak seeds overnight. The seeds were soaking in the plastic cup overnight. This morning I only had to tip the content in the pots underneath. Labels are chalkboard style. Pots are filled with pebbles and potting mix.  

I am not having much luck with seeds but might as well use up what I have left. Trying all sorts of methods. The vermiculite did not work with beans

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
