Thanks Helen! You're a marvel. I've passed on Barry's information to my friend.

Would anyone like some free tubers of Jerusalem Artichoke to grow?

I'll also have some freshly dug for sale ($3 per kg) at the Carterton Farmers' Market - Sunday mornings, 9am - 12.30pm at the Carterton Events Centre.

I had one of his wetbacks installed in my pyroclassic many years ago - both fire and wetback are brilliant!

And Hella....I still own you some money for Simon's wooden angel. Will you be in town anytime soon?

Anyone heard of a guy here in the Wairarapa called Barry Ackram? He makes heat/wetback converters. A friend of mine is trying to track him down but we can't find him through conventional means :-) We are not sure how to spell his surname either ...

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.
