Tomato 22 Jun, Razan (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
How much daily watering is necessary for growing tomatoes inside greenhouse in black plastic bags?
Tomato 24 Jun, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Little seedlings/plants need a light watering each day - if hot twice a day. Bigger plants need a good watering each 2-3 days. For pots - you need to check the top 10-20mm of soil to see if it is wet or dry. If dry then water. The size of the plant and pot will decide how often you water. You want your soil moist not wet wet. It is a bit of trial and error until you work it out.

I suggest you do some research on the internet about soil for gardening. Preparing soil takes a few weeks or months before planting. If you prepare your soil properly you add compost and even manure to it 2-3 months before planting. Dig soil 250-300mm deep.
Asparagus 21 Jun, Maggie (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
I have just purchased some asparagus crowns and read that it is best to wait until at least August/ September to plant them. Should I keep the crowns moist in the meantime or let them dry out?
Asparagus 22 Jun, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
When you bought them they should have been dry, leave them the way they are. They are in a dormancy state over winter. A tip, don't buy things until it is time to plant.

Beetroot (also Beets) 19 Jun, Anthony Peddie (New Zealand - temperate climate)
What fertilizer do you recommend for beetroot seedlings. Can you grow peas at this time of the year.
Beetroot (also Beets) 20 Jun, Anonymous (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Any general garden fertiliser - just not too high in Nitrogen - you want the beet to grow not a huge amount of leaf. Peas check the planting time here for them.

Where can I buy leek plants? When is the best time to plant them in Johannesburg?
Leeks 16 Jun, Anon (South Africa - Humid sub-tropical climate)
You plant by seed. Work out your Climate Zone from the BLUE TAB at the top of the page. Then see when you plant for that climate zone. The monthly calendar at the top page tells you when to plant.
Peas 14 Jun, Andre Crous (South Africa - Summer rainfall climate)
What types of soil do peas like
Peas 15 Jun, Anonymous (South Africa - Summer rainfall climate)
Soils range from very sandy to heavy clay, in the middle is loam. A good loamy soil with plenty of compost added to it will grow just about all vegetables. As long as you have a sufficient supply of nutrient and water you can grow things in anything, water, sand, pebble, soil, straw etc.
Cucumber 14 Jun, Ann (USA - Zone 6a climate)
Is there a smaller pickling type cucumber that I could plant in a pot with a trellis in the month of June so that I would be able to get at least some cucumbers .
