    Growing Potatoes - SE QLD

    I've had them in the fringe since last week, but I've kept them in the bag I bought them in rather than a container. I checked today and there's no moisture on them , but I'll put them in something else just to be safe. I have an abundance of heavy, clay-like compost which I was planning to...

    Red blueberry leaves

    By the looks of that photo, I'd say it's either not getting enough water, or it's fertiliser burn. I had the exact same thing happen on my bushes back in January where I wasn't able to water them for one day, except it wasn't just the leaves that did that, but some of the canes as well...

    Growing Potatoes - SE QLD

    I don't know why I didn't think of this before, but type into the Youtube search field 'High Yield Potato Barrel Moms Simple Life' to see the video I'm talking about. Apologies for the double post, but it seems I can't edit posts after a given time from when they were made (I'm still getting...

    Few things happening around the place

    Wow, so much land to play with! I'd love to have the room to grow a tree orchard like you've done. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't envious. Your roses look fantastic as well.

    Fish Heads has entered the garden

    Thanks for the welcome! The name's a reference to the Barnes & Barnes song of the same name, not so much to horticulture. The garden is flourishing at the moment; the warm season has lasted for an unusually long time, and as a result my roses are still budding and flowering when they should be...

    Fish Heads has entered the garden

    Hi there, I've been watching SSM Youtube channel for the last few months, and I thought I'd join the forum as a means to pick the brains of more capable gardeners than myself. I'm pretty new to gardening, having only started in the latter half of 2018. I started with a few herbs, tomatoes...

    Growing Potatoes - SE QLD

    Hi there, As stated in the title, I live in South East Queensland and I'd like to try my hand at growing potatoes. Specifically, I'm intending to attempt to do so within a food grade barrel (I've found a company in Brisbane that sells them), mainly due to the fact I don't have a garden bed...
