Hiya Plingie,
I'm in St Albans, at the Springfield rd end of Edgeware Rd- I have a fair bit of chickweed that you are welcome to.

Hi all, does anyone know of a breeder of Australorp chickens in the Christchurch/Canterbury area? Thanks!

hi - great to find a Canterbury group!
I've some Jerusalem artichokes looking for a good home - just sprouting - of course once you plant them you have them for ever, but they do look good in the summer!
On commercial front have heaps of rhubarb ready to harvest (I got carried away planting rhubarb seeds a few years ago), and it will not be long until the globe artichokes are ready too.

Comfry - I'm wondering if anyone has enough comfry plants that they can afford to divide and give away/swap??

To clarify: I have bags of Nitrophoska blue, rose,acid, citrus/fruit, lawn and general garden fertilisers - all brands very similar content levels npk etc listed on side of bags

carla, another seed supplier is egmont seeds which is a commercial seed company which has just launched a home garden seed catalouge.
many of their varieties are ones which are resistant to modern diseases, or grow well in sholder seasons for that variety. they have high quality seeds (which tend to grow strong plants) you can find them at www.egmontseedsshop.co.nz.
i have also had great success with kings seeds (on line) and with mr fothergales (spelling) which i think you can get at bunnings and k mart. hope that helps.

Hi everyone, -one for the non-organic gardeners here - I have a very large amount(a couple of hundred kilos) of fertiliser in damaged bags (mainly 10kg) to give away as our garden is all organic ( I know the right people at a large dispatch so if you need some let me know - note free to give away)

Hey guys, I'm running a competition to win $2000 worth of cool gardening prizes on www.mygarden.co.nz - you can see the comp . here...http://www.mygarden.co.nz/Gardening-Competition.aspx

The site is new, so any feedback would be great! I'm based here in Christchurch so would be good to hear some local feedback.

Anyone who might like to join the Southern Seed Exchange, which is dedicated to preserving locally adapted varieties of heirloom vegetables - there is a seed swap on Saturday afternoon Sept 12, at the former CPIT Seven Oaks campus, Corner Hassals Lane and York St. Bring your surplus seeds, tubers and seedlings, and you might be able to swap them for something interesting. I'll be bringing some mashua tubers, lots of beans and maybe some achoecha seed.
