Ginger 28 Jul, john massey (Australia - tropical climate)
I am planting ginger now in central Queensland -have done for a few years now-i plant in an area that will give some shade /relief from the summer sun -my seasons are changing almost every year by just a bit -rain does not always come when you need it and when it does it floods (seems to be way at moment) so I have gone with soil temperature as the best guide as all the planting guides are quite often only a just that -A guide-also have installed raised beds and have pipe over the top which I cover to deflect constant heavy rains from drowning plant and leaching soil of nutrients....constant and never-ending change keeps me on my toes..cheers John

I live in Toronto Ontario can my artichoke plant survive ontario winter
Artichokes (Globe) 27 Jul, Liz (New Zealand - temperate climate)
It will probably die down in the frost, but if you leave one head to go to seed and save some, you can start new plants in the Spring.

Asparagus 20 Jul, Larga Parker (South Africa - Summer rainfall climate)
You can buy seeds and crowns (depending on the season) from Livingseeds in Midvaal. They have a online website with plenty of organic heirloom seeds.
Tomato 19 Jul, Jan Shearer-Paulson (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Can you please recommend a tomato variety which will grow, in-spite of cool nights (WANAKA)
Tomato 21 Jul, (New Zealand - cool/mountain climate)
Are you cool mountain or temperate. That will determine your planting time. Plant whatever variety you like.
Rhubarb 17 Jul, David L. (South Africa - Summer rainfall climate)
I live in Howick KZN. I grow rhubarb in deep pots on the north side of our house (probably too hot) in a compost/soil mix regularly watered. Our area has heavy clay about 200mm below the surface, hence the reason for the pots. Our rhubarb grows many thin stalks (5/8mm dia.) quite slowly and many die before getting above 5mm dia.. The picked stalks are tasty if one has sufficient of them. The plants are about three years old and grown from a split off from a crown. Does rhubarb favour any particular soil PH? More or less water? Any particular soil mix? Require any special feeding? What is ideal soil depth? Your guidance would be appreciated. Thank you.
Rhubarb 21 Jul, (South Africa - Summer rainfall climate)
Try building your garden bed higher or use something to break up the clay - like gypsum or dolomite (I think). ph 5.5 - 6.5. Good soil depth of 12
Ginger 17 Jul, marco (Australia - tropical climate)

Ginger 20 Jul, Narendra Sen (Australia - temperate climate)
August/September is fine. In fact you could put them in the ground anytime now. I did it a week back as a trial and I can see the eyes are very prominent. So the germination process has begun. I am in SE Qld.
Beans - climbing (also Pole beans, Runner beans, Scarlet Runners) 15 Jul, VJ Pertzel (Australia - tropical climate)
Are there any beanfly resistant beans? It is so disappointing to keep losing our bean crops!
Beans - climbing (also Pole beans, Runner beans, Scarlet Runners) 21 Jul, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I only grow them in the spring time - no bugs then.
Asparagus 14 Jul, Page (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I do not have access to crowns but do for seeds. How best to prepare the soil and what pH is recommended?
Asparagus 21 Jul, Anon (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Bunnings sell crowns this time of year. Google seed selling companies on the net - like Eden seeds or similar. Crowns will have you 12 mths ahead of seeds. Just good friable soil ph 6-7 will grow most things or google it.
Taro (also Dasheen, cocoyam) 12 Jul, Elsa Keyte (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Hi. Do Taro prefer a firm base or can a well worked garden be ok? Many thanks Elsa & Graham Keyte
Taro (also Dasheen, cocoyam) 21 Jul, (New Zealand - cool/mountain climate)
Good deep soil if growing a root crop.
Snow Peas (also Sugar Peas, Mangetout, Chinese Peas) 10 Jul, Garry Searle (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Why are my pole beans wilting and dying. The runner stem above the ground is hollow but the root is pk
Snow Peas (also Sugar Peas, Mangetout, Chinese Peas) 21 Jul, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Could be bean fly - grown them in the spring.
Snow Peas (also Sugar Peas, Mangetout, Chinese Peas) 23 Jul, Garry Searle (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
But this occurs in all seasons I was wondering if I am overwatering or underwatering

Chicory (also Witloof, Belgian endive) 01 Aug, Wendy (New Zealand - temperate climate)
The Dutch market in Cambridge sells it. They are a monthly market, though don't always have endive.
