Can anyone help me with my learner style info request.
My soil is just hideous clay and I want to put some gypsum into it to start breaking it up, but I also want to transplant a euphorbia into it at the same time. Will the gypsum that I put in, along with some compost, kill the plant?

Hi there , I grew one plant not very successfully a few years ago in South Brighton ,   but I am also going to try again , Ive heard that putting corrugated iron under the plants helps somehow. I didnt do this  but  the plant grew ok just got knocked off by frost as I planted too late I think.

Has anyone grown Kumara outside here in Christchurch? The tangata whenua grew it down here and I’ve heard of it growing in Port Levy and Ilam

Does anyone know if there more cold tolerant cultivars?

Any tips/experiences/failures/successes would be great! (And yes, I know it's not the time to plant it, I'm planning ahead ;-)

Hi, I wonder if anyone has any tips for what sort of material to use to cover a small greenhouse. I can't quite warm to the standard clear polythene, it looks flimsy and also quite ugly. I thought I'd use some plastic sheeting, but the stuff that Bunnings has is not exactly cheap and also only 1m wide. I sort of stumbled into this project (someone gave me a planter box and it went from there), so I'm woefully uninformed...

Seeking organic suppliers for new Vege Box Delivery
Operating in the Sumner-Redcliffs area, we are seeking growers from within the Greater Christchurch area who are willing to sell small quantities to our vege box scheme. We pay promptly, appreciate local growers and want to develop a long-term relationship.
NB:At this stage, growers will need to deliver to our packing location (Redcliffs).
We would also like to support the practice of organic food production on vacant land in the Sumner-Redcliffs area. We have a range of sites available and a healthy community garden in support.

From these people I've learned of the great benefits of allowing so-called "weeds" to grow, and consuming these weeds in some particular ways that are tasty and easy.  Makes gardening so much easier, and makes your health and wellbeing so much better!
