    Cheap Galvanised Garden Bed

    I’ve not tried vidaxl but I have tried other cheaper beds. I’ve never bought anything other than birdies since trying them. You won’t be disappointed by birdies if you go that way. Worth the money I’d say. Plus you can get the smaller beds in Bunnings now one by one to reduce the big spend

    Mark’s Hoselink Ad

    Just seen the ad and think it’s great! great to hear more about your background and a different view from your own channels. Some very good points made and very brave. Definitely struck a chord with me. If people haven’t seen it yet I’d give it a go. I use hoselink stuff already and it’s good...

    Ah sorry WA means Western Australia to me. I knew you weren’t there so I assumed Canada. Well you are doing pretty well despite the ridiculous rules. Small minds with a little power are very dangerous indeed

    Sounds like the residents need a garden more than most. Especially during a pandemic lockdown. We have family in north Vancouver, bad image for a city usually so praised for resident happiness. Keep into the representative, motivate them to take it further.

    Looks better there, very neat too. Don’t know what their issue was. Need to get the tenants on board and force a change. They just want an easy cheap life paid for with fuel and chemicals.

    Looks really great. I think the answer is you can grow almost anything in planters if you have to. Sure it’s better to grow in ground but if your building managers are that annoying then planters will do the job, deeper the better. Who wants uniformity anyway?!?!

    New asparagus bed

    Yes they are over wintering well with their own mulch plus sugarcane but I wondered if I could use this bed over winter at all. I have about the same size bed, it’s just a shame to not use it in the winter months.

    New asparagus bed

    It’s 50:50 and seperate and the plan is to only use this for the first season and then have 100% asparagus. Now we are in winter most of the asparagus has died off, what can I plant there?

    What is this yellow affecting baby squash leaves?

    Top image looks like a nutrient deficiency. Bottom a fungus or disease. Mg or Fe deficiency? Is watering correct? Either way I’d shade them from the late sun if you think the sun is too strong. Sorry I don’t know your zone. Don’t water the leaves and make sure the soil is tip top.
