Submitting comments on website itself

by navtis,

Just started using website and finding various niggles it would be nice to log (I know once you get used to these things you forget they were ever there, but they can put off new users). For example, when entering my first garden I typed in the details, then clicked on 'add location'. This took m...

sweet potatoes

by robin,

I planted these sweet potatoes on 5-26-14. Could someone tell me when they can be harvested? I've read that the vines need to look dry on the ends. However, I don't thinkg they are ready yet. I also read that they need about four months in the ground to mature. That would mean they won't be ready...

This year (2014)

by Mad_Martha,

This year wasn't a particularly good year in my garden. Due to my ill health through spring and summer, the only things that got planted were the [potato](crop)es, [onion](crop)s and [elephant garlic](crop), all of which were planted either late last year or early in the spring. I'm refusing to...

Search by area?

by jelliknight,

I just signed up. It would be good to be able to search by location or climate rather than crop type. I live in Darwin, Australia and most normal crops and crop varieties just will not grow here at all. It's be good if I could search for what people here or in similar climates have had success with.

Companion Planting Database

by mistergibson,

Does Growstuff have a database of plants that can be 'companion planted' for optimal soil health? I understand that many plants can help feed and protect each other if put in the soil in the right combinations. Knowing what plants do next to each other and why would be an awesome resource to th...

Requesting new crops

by Trans_It,

Couldn't find [French Beans](crop) of any kind and would like to request them to be added. Went to request page, found lots of comments but where it says 'request them here', there was no link. Am new to the site, so if I double on something, please forgive.

Hi! I'm Wendy and I live in Livermore, California, USA. I live in the suburbs and have been learning about permaculture for two years now. Right now my project is slowly converting my lawn into a food forest, one module at a time. I began with a 10x20 starter garden on the north side of my hou...

Today we updated the Growstuff website and have a bunch of great new features, including: * A crop "suggest" widget, instead of an unwieldy dropdown, when you are planting, harvesting, or saving seeds * We now show the most popular crops on the [crop browse](http://growstuff.org/crops) page, ...

Dead plants

by Cesy,

I was looking at a planting page, and couldn't find many actions from there. E.g. on http://growstuff.org/plantings/cesy-planter-boxes-lavender, there's no button to harvest. I have to go to my harvests to create a new harvest. Can we add a link for that, please? Also, what do I do when a plan...

Adding edging to garden beds

by maco,

I finally got sick of the way the weeds are sending runners into my garden beds and I can't use the string trimmer around them for fear of hitting my plants. So I went to Home Depot to get some 4x4 to lay down the sides. And they told me they can't cut 4x4. I'm pretty sure this is wrong and that ...
