"There are some notes about that in the literature and there may be some in Roger's document too. Basically, like a clearcut or clearfell, you take the succession back to the 'placenta' stage by removing the secondary stage and…"
"Nice write-up, Dave. I guess you liked it...
Ernst is also scientifically-published, most in Portuguese, so there is further reading at a deeper level than articles and video can do. There is a conference with him on Youtube that is quite good,…"
Sure you can mature nodes on plants to propagate but it means you have to either cut them from hedges or dig up older plants. And then they require a bit more care to get to root whereas the simpler division yields instant plants. Tissue…"
"These plants are 12 months old. I may dig up some into Summer. They really start tillering after 12 months so I'm hoping to at least get high 20s and 30s for slip count. They have been inundated most of last year and now again obviously so they…"
"It would be easier because the plant would be smaller than one given more space to grow. You need to find the balance between available light, competition and tiller formation. Tiller formation is what we want to maximise and having more light,…"
"It looks like we started dividing at the same time, based on your post on the Vetiver Network FB page. The day after I started putting them in, they received -1.5C. Lukcily the days were warm and they started growing straight away."

Good Afternoon Evan, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF).
Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One of these is the GARDEN VISITS, 2018 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR. I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many different kinds of Gardens, Permaculture, Aquaculture, Wicking Beds, Traditional and many more. The GV's are usually held once a month. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, seeds, knowledge as well as a good chat and a lovely Homemade Morning Teas.
We have many subjects of interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question. If you feel you are particularly adept in a field you may like to add a new Group to our List or perhaps do a talk or demonstration at one of our GV. If a yes for the GV you might like to friend me and we can see what we can do. We are always looking for new ideas.

Donations of $5 and above will be gratefully received and used only to pay for BLF web-hosting. A donation of $25 will pay to host the site for a calendar month!
