    Young ginger will taste mild while old ginger will taste more fiery. When you harvest your ginger root, was it the 'young' or 'old' part of the root?

    New Zealand has strict quarantine laws when it comes to importing fruit, herbs and vegetables.I am sure they would not let it come in.

    I have plenty of horse radish, but I live in United States and I don’t know if I can send the roots over seas. If I can mail the roots I will. Does anyone know?

    I've just read Mitre 10 keep seeds at some of their stores. I have one plant which is now in fruits. They are tasty. In tropics they grow wild with lots of fruits at a time.

    Tomatoes are frost tender, so yes you need some sort of protection for them, if you want to grow all the year round.

    Onions are hardy plants and so frost tolerant, they will survive the winter. My understanding is If you plant them in Autumn you can harvest them in spring as spring onions but you won't get bulbs...
