Hydroponics anybody. Take a look at the new hydroponics and aquaponics group just started up.

Lettuce and celery,lemon grass at this stage,i'm changing my tunnelhouse at the moment from growing old baths and replacing them making raised stone wall beds,i found rats like to get under the baths where our dog could get them.

Hi Penny, I like to plant coriander, cress, spinach and mesclun in my glass house over winter.

What do you plant in your glasshouse over winter? This is my 1st winter with a glasshouse. I have a couple of tomatoes, a pepper and a chilli still hanging on and a cucumber plant that hasn't flowered yet but i have 2 empty pots and am wondering what I could put in them.

I am wondering if there is anyone in the Silverdale/Orewa/Waiwera are who could give me some advice regarding my green house.  Nothing seems to grow very well and I dont know why.

Great thanks. I thought they may have been like courgettes and not like glasshouses. Now will have to see if I can find some room on the glasshouse.

Eggplants are grown for decorative looks and enjoyed as edible vegetables. The eggplant belongs to the Solanaceae family, which also includes tomatoes and bell peppers. Eggplants require heat and sunlight to flourish. Greenhouses produce perfect conditions for eggplant growth. Weather fluctuations can cause the plant to produce poorly if grown outdoors. I hope that can help you Yvonne

What do eggplants think about glasshouses and tomato plants. Not sure if it will like being outside in Dunedin. Any thoughts?

Just like the share something ive learnt with my cucumbers.

This happened last season also,so i know now it works,sometimes a cucumber when it starts to form can get bloom end rot because the old flower hasn't fallen off and it seems to start under it,what i do is remove that dried old flower and with dry hands rub my fingers all over the area where the rot is starting,must be the oil in ya skin that stops it in its track,the cucumber in the photo was done a week ago and now no sign of root

I only had one really lonely Capsicum plant in my greenhouse when I came back from Europe at teh end of June. So The fact we have had such a good harvest is fantastic. The chelsea Flower show was a real insperation (sp). Lots of edible gardens.
