Strawberry Plants 01 Jun, Donna (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Hi. I have flowers in late May/June just going into winter on my Camarosas. I planted in summer last year and got very little fruit. The plants are now in their second year. Should II pick those flowers off? Thanks
Broccoli 31 May, Denise (Australia - temperate climate)
Hi there, I have broccoli growing and aquadulce broad beans. Are these compatible? I don’t think these beans climb as much as some others but find it hard to distinguish between dwarf and climbing for these. Thank you!
Broccoli 01 Jun, liz (Australia - temperate climate)
If you have a search aquadulce fava bean - you will find info about height etc.
Beans - climbing (also Pole beans, Runner beans, Scarlet Runners) 01 Jun, Denise van der Marel (Australia - temperate climate)
Hi there, thank you for your reply. I know they can grow up to 150cm. but I'm not sure if that categoriseses these beans as dwarf (bush) beans or climbing beans?

Pumpkin 27 May, Pumpkin Pete (Australia - temperate climate)
What is the best prep after drying seeds to grow ? Thanks
Pumpkin 28 May, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Give them a couple of weeks to dry out, put them in a little sealing bag, then put them in a sealable jar and into the fridge. When you take them out of the fridge leave for 20-30 mins before you open the jar. Stops condensation.
