"Oh, what a fabulous lot of Pumpkins, Roger, Darren and Mary-Ann, I am so envious, we just don't have the room to grow them or Melons.. Keep up the great gardening guys, whilst I will still have to get ours from the Fruit Shop."

"From where did you get the seeds of the Styrian Hulless? I tried this years ago but before the wicking beds and didn't get any fruit. I love Pumpkin seeds but not those Chinese ones on sale locally."

Logan Food Gardeners

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)
