Hi...anyone know where to source hop plants from?

Give me a call asap to tee up collection of the Sturmer budwood. I may have a couple of other varieties too.

We discussed getting fruit treet rootstock at Hella's place a few weeks ago. Who/when/ where....?

And yes, Helen, I'd like some Sturmer budwood please.

I'm pruning my Sturmer apple tomorrow. Would anyone like me  to save some budwood? If you keep it in the fridge the budding would be done in August.

Summer pruning tomorrow (Sat 14th - wet day option: Sun 15th)

 Time: 2.30pm (cuppa around 3.30pm – a small plate or cold drink would we appreciated.)

Venue: 12 Costley St, Carterton.

Contact 06 379 8034 or 027 9009 742 if weather is doubtful.

 I grow a wide variety of fruit trees and am practically self sufficient in fruit & veg all year round. We’ll prune plum, peach and apple.


Please note that my pruning knowledge and skills are limited. The idea is that by pooling our knowledge and experience we’ll learn together. And we’ll enjoy one another’s company and (hopefully!) a nice autumn day in the garden! 

As you may be aware, I’m also a seed-saver. And I’m the local agent for Bokashi composting systems. I’m happy to make both available on the day.

Thanks for informative day yesterday Hella.  Nice to meet with everyone too. Just saw this post and video about the "Flow" hive, thought you'd like to see it.

Is anyone here planning to go to this workshop?

Comment by Helen Dew on January 19, 2015 at 9:55pm

Hi Claire

I'd be happy to donate some perennials - some are in bags, in need of tlc. Others are in the garden that I'll be clearing prior to mulching this week. You'd be doing me a favour if you gave them a new home!
