Started this discussion. Last reply by Sophie Apr 10. 4 Replies

It is pruning time again. This is when I treat my citrus to a good going over for gall wasp and also a general tidy up. I always prune three times, as it is so easy to miss galls. I made the mistake…Continue

Profile Information

About me:
I garden on a 5 acre block of terrible soil. Therefore most of my gardening is done in containers where I can control the growing conditions. Old baths, laundry tubs, pots, PVC pipes, above ground wicking beds. I like experimenting with new growing ideas.
I am currently involved with the following community gardens and groups:
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)
Information, Community Involvement, Gardening Help
What I am looking for:
Information, Products and/or Services, Plants or Produce, Garden Materials, Events, Community Involvement, Gardening Help
Location

I made it along to BOGI on Thursday evening for once, It is an hour plus drive from downtown Park Ridge and I often don't make the effort, but I'm glad I did this time.

They showed Polo fields in Qatar, which have been treated with Palagonite and have great results getting grass to grow there.

Palagonite is a mineral mix formed by very specific volcanic activity. Mt…

http://abc.net.au/news/2016-10-11/new-fruit-fly-trap-will-save-fresh fruit-crops-inventor-claims-... Read the article about this. I wonder how much it will be. Surely as it is a product of a respected Uni it should work. It would be a huge boon to not only Organic Gardeners but also the general public, as conventional farmers will be able to grow fruit, etc. without poisonous sprays and this will not only make the…
