Hello everyone, I am looking for some fresh almonds.... someone has one?

Hi Lucette and Nicki, thanks for the offer, I'd like to come and have a look when you use your mulcher next to see what these things can do, if that's all right with you. I'm pretty sure I'll get one before all the tidy up work starts in fall, just trying to get an idea what's out there.

Hey Hanna, We've got a good electric mulcher. It's a bosch pretty old. Perfect for what you are talking about. You are welcome to come have a look or borrow it if you want to give it a go and post-pone your purchase. I really like having an electric one.

Thanks for that Rachelle:)

Colleen you could try a seaweed based foliar spray; that's what I use on my fruit trees to combat leaf curl by making them healthier and it works really well.   I think it costs around $30 from Oderings and lasts ages.  You spray once a fortnight; no withholding period.

I'm looking for suggestions to feed my greenhouse Peppers, eggplants, melons & cucumbers - as I am trying them on the bench in pots this season. They are growing well but now as they set fruit they will be running out of nutrients in the soil. Thanks

Hi Moggy,we got one of those old-fashioned muscle operated lawn mowers, don't think I'll be chopping prunings with that one :-D. I'm just after something for small twigs, doesn't have to be a heavy duty chipper.

darn I knew there was something else on my to do list when I came into chch today!

How woody  are your prunings? If they are not very woody, then run over with them with the lawnmower. Alternatively you can get lawnmowers with inbuilt chippers these days.

I'm thinking about getting a small garden shredder to make it easier to compost my prunings. Does anyone have any tips what to get, where to get it and what to avoid? I don't want to spend huge amounts of money, but don't want to get something that breaks down on day two either. By the way, I still have some tea plants. :-)
