Oh crap!! Gotta make sure I put garden visits in my calendar well in advance!! I am just doing that now and realized I stupidly booked myself into a whale watching tour on the same day earlier this week!! >___<" Wanted to book 16th, but not available, and our pre-purchased tickets are about to expire ... Well, have a great day everyone ^^

Reyna, It would be good to see you there. The last one was a great success. Moringa is a truly an awesome plant. Not only the most nutritious plant to eat, but can be used as a fertiliser, plant conditioner and lots of other uses. btw, it can grow to 9 plus metres high, but the best use is to grow it really close and crop it heavily as a salad crop, ie no more than 30 to 100 cm apart and keep low enough to continually harvest. The best website I found for info on growing and uses is at:

Great Vanessa. Update on Moringa - Bruce Ham from BOGI has a huge Moringa tree at home and recently gave me some fresh seeds. I can ask him to bring more (and hopefully some cuttings) to the BOGI Fair on Oct 3 for anyone else looking for this amazing plant.

Thanks Elaine - glad you managed to save the sickly looking ones. If anyone can do it, I knew you could.

When I get my 3 Moringa seedlings out of their pots and into the garden and when they produce seeds (I should live so long!) I'm intending to distribute what I can glean from them. Although how old I will be by then is anyone's guess ;-)

So they do, will buy some cuttings from them next time I need to order something. Very expensive tho. Oh well if I can find some more seeds when they're due to flower, I'll take a LOT more care with them. There is a drumstrick tree somewhere in west end. It's shown on that google map produced by Permablitz edible streets tours which I think I found on this site.
