  • Hi susan hows things? I wonder how your pink iona grape went? I recall you weren't liking the muscadine so were going to replace it with a pink iona. My muscadine is fruiting for the first time and its on drip irrigation but i fear my kids wont like it.

  • Hi Susan. Sounds like your GV went well? It's certainly an oasis you have there. On my way home on Saturday I thought what a great way to have your strawberries, and I want to do the same thing. Keeps them off the ground, extra water from the waterwell pots, and you can move them around. Best of all it's so easy to set up and by using the fence space I can free up an entire garden bed! What size troughs did you use (450mm, 600mm, 700mm)? How many plants per pot? But mainly I am interested in those racks you use to hang them - do you remember what they were called, what brand, where did you get them?
  • I plan to be at the GV in Dayboro, if you are going. I'll be sure to bring some.

  • Thanks for the info, Susan. There's programmes alright, too darned many of them. Tried several, none keep the 300dpi the pictures are at.

    The programme you used is not available to me on the Mac but I do have others already that I can make up something to use as a template. I was hoping to save myself the hassle ;-)

  • Hi Susan! Welcome aboard. I look forward to hearing more about your garden, especially the edging, since I'm doing the same thing right now! :-)

  • welcome Susan :)
