    Dear Members - apology...

    We're getting close... I'm hoping in the next week (maybe two) I'll have the "behind the scenes stuff" taken care of and be able to spend more time here on SSC to interact with you and also to continue the improvements and adding new features to our forum. Thanks for your patience!

    Dear Members - apology...

    Thanks Rachel but at the end of the day many people join our forum with the assumption (rightly so) that they will have access to me to some extent so it's up to me to find a way to become more active and that's what I intend and want to do. Cheers:)

    Question Advice requested: placement of raised bed

    Have you grown those tomatoes there the whole time? If you can grow tomatoes in that spot you should be able to grow most things.

    Dear Members - apology...

    G'day Everyone, I'd like to apologise for not making myself more accessible here on our forum over the past few months and indeed for some time longer than that my presence here has been limited, to say the least. I understand that many of you have joined our forum because you have seen my...

    Hello from Morayfield, Queensland.

    Welcome Janelle! Have a search for some local dairies and just give them a cold call (easier said than done I do understand) I have sourced cow manure over at Pumicestone but it was an invitation so I really can't disclose it otherwise they might not be happy with me doing so. Some landscape...

    Its time to PICKLE

    Great stuff! I'm trying to nurse a few cucumber plants through our winter to get a head start coming into spring but it's slow growing... our zucchinis are suffering also with leaf disease due to the cool damp conditions. I really love to have pickled cucumbers handy especially homemade ones

    Hello from Freiburg

    Another great example of small space gardening Reggie thanks for sharing and for joining us here on SSC! That is unusual and I'm not sure why this is happening but perhaps don't get that type of compost again (obviously) but also making your own should be easy enough for a small garden. The...

    Fruit fly?

    I've seen Mediterranean fruit fly in our area on zucchini this winter (which is unusual) and signs of sting with rot around the site but no maggot development probably because it is too cold.

    Question Citrus Moths, Should I use fruit bags?

    Bagging is a good defence but this year I was also hit by this moth and we lost about 50 oranges, however, they seemed to only last about a week and were gone leaving the rest of our crop to ripen fine. We still have hundreds. So bagging is probably necessary only if your fruit is on the...

    Question Fabric Pots

    Grow bags are as good as any container to grow fruit & veg with the advantage of being easier to store when empty and transport.

    bug on lemon tree

    Aphids love new citrus shoots. Pest oil should shift them and if it doesn't mix in some pyrethreum (last resort - but is considered organic) don't spray when bees are around.

    Sick peas - maybe whole bed is in need of help

    It looks like it could be soil related because it doesn't look like a disease to me but I doubt it is due to not enough fertiliser possibly too much or the medium is too heavy. Maybe something is attacking the roots but whatever it is I doubt they are salvageable unfortunately. Probably best...
