thank you Lissa for your message! I'll sure keep in touch. Where was Andy in france?

I want this trip to Australia to be different from a usual tourist thing, so I want to make contacts in advance so as to meet people, rather than just see the sights...

Hi Lissa

I bought a grafted finger lime tree about 8 yrs ago, which flowers every year but I have yet to see any fruit on it. Pls advise how I can correct this.

Thank you.

Not your fault, I'm thrilled that you found him! I want moo poo!!

Perhaps he's been inundated with requests and turned off the phone...

I also am now left with a message that the phone is turned off or disconnected. I apologise for your frustration and disappointment. I'm removing this recommendation. If I hear from Glen I'll give him your phone number Lissa.

Hey Lissa - recognise those beautiful photos of those superb vegies?

You get the gold photo medal.

thankyou, and I hope it's okay to use them to pretty up the site for Autumn

Heh Lissa the cuttings you gave are growing well but still all in one pot so I,m gonna have to bite the bullet and put each one in their own pot. We are cropping the red leaf hibiscus, and the cactus was put in its own pot and is growing a new pad about 2.5 ins long. How's the sweet leaf cuttings going? Our 's are loving this hot wet climate and the dandelion as well all else is struggling especially my green choko.

Oh by the way, really!really! sorry for the mango puree (sweet chilli sauce) scare, hope U came through unscathed.

Yes Lissa The Juice bottles do make it hot, I'll keep them off till it gets cooler. The flower I pollinated and did not bag is not getting any bigger --- a sure sign of failure.

Yes, it was so silly, as I put all the other things in pots and then into a big box and left them with a generous amount of water in the bottom. Fortunately, I was smart enough to put one raspberry in there, so I've got something to be going on with, even if the touch-and-go ones don't survive. It hasn't been a particularly hot summer in Brisbane, but so very dry! When is it ever going to rain?

Hi Lissa,

Thanks again for the raspberries. I'm afraid I had to go away during that very hot weather last weekend and one or two might not have made it. The others are looking fine, though, and the other things you gave me look great, although I haven't planted them out yet.

I'm trying a new invention. super glued 2 three litre juice bottles together " end to end" and cut large holes around them and then pulled a stocking over them. I placed that over the end of the new runner with a small flower, about the size of a pea. I'll see if this one grows better.

Regards the bagging of the pumpkin flowers, I did 2 and both went yellow and didn't grow. Cut the bigger one into thin slices and not a mark anywhere. Maybe they just don't like this intense heat.
