re organic soil, I find zoo doo compost really good and they offer a number of other products including topsoil...you could ask them about its source etc. google them, they have a website and deliver for free locally.

depends what it looks like could be a nitrogen deficiency or magnesium as they are often confused with each other its hard to say with out seeing them could be wet and waterlogged?

My broad beans, approx 8 inches high, are starting to look a bit sick - going yellow around the leaves from the bottom up - does anyone have any idea what it might be?

Try phoning "Daltons" organic potting/compost mix and ask them! I hope this helps!

Does anyone know where to get good organic soil from in Auckland ?

I'm looking for some for my raised bed gardens and want the best I can get. I am planning to add horse manure, green mulch and my own compost to it, but want to start with something that has no chemical fertilisers etc. Thanks.

Hi there I have a lot of limes at present so anyone who wants some can get in touch. I am away from Friday for a few weeks so before then would be great.

I do not have a garden / lawn, but I have lots of spare time and would like to donate that to a worthy cause, if you know anyone who needs some help in their gardens please let me know. I live in Balmoral but am happy to travel within reasonable distance. I have always had a garden and lawn to maintain and miss it now that I am living in an apartment.

Hi- I am wondering if any one in central Auckland has a place I could age my raw cheddar cheese for 6-12 weeks. Ideal place would be a wine fridge, but any where that has a temperature of 7-15 C would work, a cellar perhaps? In exchange, I could make and store a cheese for you aswell, or we could work something else out.

OK. For real:

Propagation: Guava seed remain viable for many months. They often germinate in 2 - 3 weeks but may take as long as 8 weeks. Since guavas cannot be depended upon to come true from seed, vegetative propagation is widely practiced. They are not easy to graft, but satisfactory techniques have been worked out for patch-budding by the Forkert Method (probably the most reliable method), side-veneer grafting, approach grafting and marcotting The tree can also be grown from root cuttings. Pieces of any roots except the smallest and the very large, cut into 5 - 10 inch lengths, are placed flat in a prepared bed and covered with 2 - 4 inches of soil, which must be kept moist. They may also be grown by air-layering or from cuttings of half-ripened wood. Pieces 1/4 - 1/2 inch will root with bottom heat and rooting-hormone treatment. Trees grown from cuttings or air-layering have no taproot, however, and are apt to be blown down in the first 2 or 3 years. One of the difficulties with budded and grafted guavas is the production of water sprouts and suckers from the rootstocks.

OK?
