Howdy, I'm on the hunt for a tangerine tree or cutting should someone have an established tree. I've tried a few local nurseries and even Bunnings with no luck. Places seem to think offering me some other type of citrus and an acceptable alternative however it has to be the Citrus... Read more
Forgive me Garden, for I have sinned...   2

Posted by gotica on July 23, 2013 at 16:48"

Well not technically sinned, but yanno it's been awhile since I've updated... My zucchini succummed to mildew and well, just did not make it through. I ended up pulling them and have planted Kale in their place. The strawberries may be also slightly affected by mildew as they are going grey... Read more
Overgrown rhubarb   6

Posted by maco in Growing Stuff on July 22, 2013 at 16:27"

There's a plant next to my driveway that a friend says is rhubarb. He says it's normal that if you let it overgrow, the stalks go brown instead of bright red. It's about as tall as me at this point. Can I still cook the stalks, even though they're far past ripe? Do I just cut back the rhubarb to... Read more

So, um, watering's important. Yep. Very important. Well, what with moving into the house and all THAT plants are looking the worse for wear. They haven't gotten enough water. The oregano is dead. The basil and chives are just hanging on. The tomatoes have sort of purple leaves.... Read more

An example of "other" plantings   1

Posted by Skud on July 16, 2013 at 04:29" and edited at May 27, 2019 at 23:48

Just a note of something edible I planted, that won't ever be in our crops database, and would be a prime candidate for the "other" option we've talked about implementing: I just planted a big wide container with Diggers Club "Microgreen Winter Mix" which contains red russian [kale](crop),...

urban gardens in Kerala

Posted by brainwane in Sustainable Living on July 09, 2013 at 06:38"

Check out [this article in Caravan]( it seems that the state of Kerala has a "vegetable initiative for urban clusters". Kerala's State Horticulture Mission might be a good partner in localising Growstuff to Malayalam. :-)
