A couple of minor UI things   1

Posted by Meg in Growstuff Feedback & Support on March 31, 2013 at 13:10"

The site is looking lovely! It's really exciting to be playing around with it. I noticed just a couple of very minor issues that might be worth modifying. Apologies if these are already listed in the tracker and I missed them. First, when I initially set up my account and went to edit my... Read more
Uses for lemon peel   7

Posted by Skud in Sustainable Living on March 30, 2013 at 02:20"

I've recently seen a couple of interesting ideas for using lemon peel and I thought I'd post them here and see if anyone has others. 1. Peel the lemons with a fruit-peeler (i.e. into thin strips, avoiding pith) and then dry them in the oven on a low heat. Put the dried peels in a jar and use... Read more
Rhubarb in containers

Posted by Skud in Growing Stuff on March 29, 2013 at 00:45" and edited at May 26, 2019 at 22:13

I've got some [rhubarb](crop) seedlings which I hope to plant out in containers. Does anyone have much experience with this? Any particular tips? I know rhubarb's meant to be a heavy feeder so I'm wondering particularly how to keep it happy in that regard. I've also heard it's a good companion... Read more

"Nearby gardens" or similar feature?   2

Posted by jinty in Growstuff Feedback & Support on March 28, 2013 at 12:17"

I see from previous posts that a "friends" type feature has been suggested already. How about a "gardens near you" feature, for those of us who have specified a location?
This was going to contain much more whining about our landlords   1

Posted by Skud on March 26, 2013 at 23:20"

... but I'm tired of it, so I won't. I just wish our mutual understanding of the term "quiet enjoyment" involved fewer inspections and more autonomy in the garden. Anyway. The other day I picked up some herbs from the CERES nursery, and on Monday I planted them along the front... Read more

Crop page suggestions   3

Posted by maco in Growstuff Feedback & Support on March 21, 2013 at 01:41"

I only have one for now, but for a bigger mouse target, I think the image, not only the crop name, should be linkified. Any others?

I see that other people are able to upload images to use as their avatars, but I can't figure out how to do it.
Worms!   1

Posted by juliet on March 20, 2013 at 16:33"

Dug out compost this week and I have never SEEN so many worms. It was a highly pleasing sight. I've seen a decent number in the raised beds, too. Given that in summer 2011 when we moved in the whole garden was paved over and the ground underneath was compacted clay with virtually no soil life... Read more
Southern hemisphere - what are you planting for winter?   8

Posted by Skud in Growing Stuff on March 20, 2013 at 12:26"

Let's get this ball rolling! I notice there are a lot of antipodeans (mostly Melbournians, ahem, wonder why that is?) signed up so far, so I'd like to know... what are you planning on growing over the winter? We have some chard that's still going strong from the summer, but I think I'll... Read more
