"Just wondering when phaleonopsis orchids flower indoors in Auckland. I can't remember and I'm dying for mine to flower! They look very healthy with lots of new roots and I'm feeding them with flower fertiliser."

"I am looking for a few seeds of Poppy - Fire Circle from Koanga if anyone has some please. I would order them directly but the postage is more than the packet of seeds and I don't need any others at the moment to make it a worthwhile order."

Apple picking in Hamilton for charity at Hamilton

June 9, 2012 from 9am to 3pm
Community Fruit Harvesting has been offered the chance to pick the last of an apple crop at a commercial orchard.

My garden is mainly full of beautiful flowers and I love to watch each of them grow and bloom year after year. It's still a work in progress, but each year, more and more parts of it get 'finished' (if a garden is ever finished). I have grown vegetables in between my flowers before - last year I had a great bean teepee that my cat loved to sleep under. This year, my dad has just built me four raised beds. I have planted one of them with strawberries, lettuce, carrots and beetroot. My heritage seeds have just arrived and I'm about to start planting the rest of the veggies for this year. I hope I'll have enough space!

Hi Catherine-I have to confess I haven't started my cucumbers yet. My work life got busier than I like. I am looking foward to getting them going soon. Funny Giorgio-he really is a catnip addict. He'd have a big job chewing it all up here. It grows wild all over the place. My cats nibble it a bit.
