SUMMER 2016-17, WHAT ARE YOU SOWING, PLANTING, PREPARING, DESIGNING-REDESIGNING FOR YOUR GARDEN

Posted on December 3, 2016 at 12:19 17 Comments

Well Summer is here. We have felt the brunt of the first storms for the Season, some of us left with a mess to clean up and others with some lovely rain added to their tanks. As we feel the extremes of Summer so do our Flowers, Vegetables, Herbs, Plants and Trees. Whilst some are very good at coping with the stresses of Summer others need help. So it's time to think about how we can help our plants along.

Mulching is important, as is keeping the water up. There are many forms of…

Thanks Dianne :)

Thanks Dianne,

 I have been getting information from this forum for the last 2 years. Finally pulled my finger out and decided to join. I have only been at my current place for the last 2 years previously had this place rented out and lived on a smaller block. I grew up on farms and a banana plantations as a kid and have always wanted to get back to that sort of lifestyle albeit close to the city for work purposes. 

Once again thanks for the welcome and I will try to contribute as much as I can.

BTW my avatar is of a few of my first crop of black sapote this year, my first and how I love them.

Regards Doug

Hi Dianne, thanks for great reply, I am very interested in growing the YACON tubers as I have a type two diabetic wife. I watched the Garden Guru on tv yesterday and that prompted me to grow this wonderful plant. I have never seen it before and am wanting to get a few tubers to plant. I would be very interested in obtaining some if you or your other members are able to spare a few. Kind regards Wally.

Hi Diane, thanks so much for your welcome. There are so many interesting discussions, the one I am very interested in is a recipe for "Green citrus marmalade (jam)", but I can't find it anywhere. Would you guys help me find it, I recently pruned my lemon tree and I have a lot of green lemons. 

Many thanks, Karmen

Hello Dianne :)

Thank you ever so much for your warm welcome. My apologies for the late reply, i have been busy working. Thank you for the local info, I shall definitely keep my eye out on whats happening and where. I would love to go to the garden visits as I'm eager to learn :) I have just noticed some of my seedling starting to sprout which I'm so thrilled about. I'm heading to purchase some more tomorrow. :) Looking forward to a thriving Veggie garden.
