Fig cuttings -would anyone like to swap?

G'day,I am coming to the next two events and would like to swap Fig cuttings with anyone who is attending and has a variety that I don't have. My cuttings will be White Adriatic and Brown Turkey. For those who have never taken a cutting - to plant, you need to take around 6 inches or longer with a square cut just below a node, and an angled cut just above a node at the top. The cuts leave no doubt as to which is the top and bottom of the cutting. These cuttings can be put into a plastic bag in…See More

Logan Food Gardeners
Bogi
I am interested in:
growing all veges and fruit trees, finding out what to grow, where and when.
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)

With the weather now much more bearable, it is becoming a real pleasure to get out in the garden and come out of summer hibernation. A holiday in Tasmania in late summer saw us enjoy a few weeks of much cooler weather, but on return, it had obviously rained quite a bit while we were away and the rampant growth everywhere has/is taking a lot of work to get under control again.

The weedy TRAD has grown like Topsy and covers a lot of ground. It will take all of the cooler months to clear…

G'day,

How are things at your place right now in the garden? I have noticed the garden changing - drying out for a while now with no rain to help. The difference between raised beds which are in  full contact with the ground and my containers which are either set up as a wicking bed or simply separated from the ground e.g. sacks, baths, laundry tubs, etc. is most marked. A few weeks ago everything was flourishing, there was moisture in the ground and  watering needed to be minimal.…

My Palagonite experiment

 

You may remember that I planted out two identical "Rouge De Marmande" seedlings, each in a wheelie bin with identical growing mixes, except that in 1of the bins I mixed in an amount of Palagonite mineral powder as well.
