    Look forward to see it loaded up and growing healthy plants. I’ve just started using a few Mr Stacky towers, very similar. Certainly greens and strawberries go awesome in them.

    Good on you Mark I was going to suggest the native Bee honey but already covered. Certainly set yourself a challenge. Just don’t get yourself sick. With covic now is not the time to have your immune system run down. Get lots of juices, and smoothies into you. If you have your own nuts growing...

    Red blueberry leaves

    Yep I was going to say more water too. I have lots of blueberry plants and it is usually cause it’s hot and they need more water.

    Sweet Potatoes

    I’m in SEQ and I thought sweet spuds prefer a warmer climate, so down there maybe too cold. As clissat said prune the leaved back to not only control as they can soon turn into Trifids. Also I have read that pruning the leaves makes the plant put more growth into the actual sweet spuds. Oh and...

    Question Realities of Compositing

    Never had a huge amount of success with composting. These days I just put everything in a pile or old garden bed and just leave it alone. Long time later it seems to work.

    I’m in the same area and pests have been particularly bad this year. I found anything uncovered was just being devoured by bugs. Mine are now covered up. I don’t think anything beats checking them and squishing any bugs several times a day. I know a lot of people use neem oil

    Growing Potatoes - SE QLD

    I’m also in SEQ and have grown potatoes several times. I’ve grown Otway Red and Sebago both with equal success and have not heard that red one don’t go well here. I’ve tired growing them in big pot bags with little success but I think part of that was me learning how to grow them best not so...

    Self Sufficient Me 2.........

    Mmmm don’t really see the point for a second channel, might get a bit confusing. I guess Mark has his reasons. He seems to be totally wrapped up in YouTube these days.

    Citrus fruit pests

    Thanks Clissat I appreciate your reply. I know that they say pests won’t bother a healthy tree as much. I do spray with different trace minerals every now and then and if I notice anything. Trouble is learning what deficiencies is what can be hard to work out. I know before summer I was being...

    Citrus fruit pests

    I know this has been covered before but this is a last ditch attempt for a solution before I remove citrus trees.
