Hi all... I am on the hunt for elderflowers for making elderflower wine. The trees should be flowering about now. Swap some flowers for some wine?

Hi Aucklanders, I've got a bokashi bucket full of food scraps to give to a good home. Also some bokashi "juice" (similar to "worm wee"). Get in touch if you're keen.

André - Also sometimes seedlings that have been left to long in small pots will seed quicker or not do so well in the garden. Sometimes seedlings in garden centres etc have been left to long, before you buy them.

@ Andre - keep the plants watered. Most plants respond to drying conditions by setting seeds, Parsley is famous for running to seed the moment you forget to water for a few days. Also if the seedlings become root bound in their pots before planting out they will go to seed sooner.

you could try a cooler spot in the garden. ive got things all over the place so that they come on at different times. not sure if you will reverse the process tho. good luck

Lately we have had lots of bees flying into our house through open windows (about half a dozen a day) and dying. I have never seen anything like this before. Does anyone know what might be happening?

Does anyone know how to slow plants going to seed? I have always had the problem of plants going to seed very quickly. I pretty much only plant seedlings from the garden centre. I imagine the climate in Auckland has something to do with it. Does anyone have any tricks to slow the process of going to seed?

Ooo Climbing butter beans would be cool. Nah they're wet. You buy them dry to begin with but I don't know how I would get mine to dry without killing them. I live out west in Henderson but I can't drive so you would need to come pick them up unfortunately.

HI Claire. I would be interested. I have heritage seeds of coriander, climbing butter bean, red stem celery, broad beans. Is it possible to send the kefir by post? Otherwise I live in birkenhead and travel to Ellerslie twice a week during school term.

Does anyone here need or want kefir grains? ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kefir ) for those who don't know what it is. It is used to make a fermented drink which aids in digestion and gut health. I got some from my sister and over the past 6 months they have more than doubled in quantity. And I know they are expensive to buy so figured heey, why not give them away or swap them? If anyone has any heritage seeds that they'd like to swap them for, that'd be brilliant. Or if you just really really want them then whatever, they're just being wasted sitting in my fridge! :)
