Re: Apricot seedlings

Sounds like a beauty indeed Dawn. Would like some seeds also but no point trying to send me some Down Under, no way would they be allowed in.

Re: Apricot seedlings

@Dawn keep an eye on the seedlings you mowed. They may well try to put out multiple shoots, you would probably be better off to limit this to one shoot per plant to form a nice trunk rather than a group of branches that could well develop as a weak spot for future growth.

Re: Little Red Tree

Interesting little plants, wonder how big a fruit you could grow on some of these if they were crossed with some of the beefsteaks.

Not aware of stick type plants being down under, pity.

Re: Garlic 2021

Garlic is up and away here Down Under as well. Early Turbans would be pushing 6 inches high, later planted turbans are well through as is Elephant Garlic first of the Porcelains. Lots still to come. All got a boost with the beautiful weekend weather we had, pushing 70F

Re: The Garden of Woz...

The Southern Cross flowers pretty much all year round. It is a difficult to to keep going for an extended period normally, like a lot of our plants from specialised environments, keeping them going for more than 3 years is difficult. That garden, which I established 30 odd years ago is now but a sha...

Re: Things that aren't worth growing

Ever considered something like Garden Sorrell @TXTravis . If you like the taste of lemon, you may well enjoy it. Perennial leafy green that once established just keeps on producing all year

Re: can/will cabbage head from last year's root

One would expect bulk seed growers to leave the head on - it would act as an energy store for the plant producing bigger flower stalks with more seed than small side heads would produce

Re: The Garden of Woz...

Doryanthes excelsa aka Giant Spear Lily about 30 years ago I planted one of these at the folks farm as part of a garden of over 500 native species. They are very slow growing when moved around 600 miles south of their natural home range. Around Sydney NSW where they are from on the sandstone country...

Re: The Garden of Woz...

Keeping the Kang Kong Going Kang Kong is a tropical relative of sweet potato which is harvested for it leafy greens rather than roots. I grow it mainly for my son, who loves the taste, the rest of us not so much. It is normally considered as an annual here and we get probably 4 to 5 months out of a ...

Re: can/will cabbage head from last year's root

Judging by the way they are growing, those stems are running to Seed. When cabbages form little heads are cutting, they look just like oversized sprouts or small cabbages against the stalk, not on stems like those. We see it regularly here down under where climatic conditions are a bit different. No...
