"My advice is to be resourceful about what is already all around you. Other people's rotten fruit/vege is a source of seed for you. Cut out the eyes of potatoes you have bought and plant them in compost in a cheap bucket. Take the seeds from one…"

HELEN MACKENZIE's Blog

A website that seems to offer a lot

http://www.pfaf.org/leaflets/vegorg.php
Plants for a future seems to be a worthy site to visit. Lots of organic vege gardening information.
Edible, medicinal and useful plants are listed.

Hi Helen.

If you would like to obtain seeds that people have posted about on the Seedbank Group pages, it is probably more effective to message the person who posted about that particular seed, on their own home page, rather than on the Seedbank pages, where they may not see your message.

Did you find the garlic?

Are you still interested to be a garden buddy?

Hi, I am looking for both, I live in Mangere.

Thanks

Even if your answer is no, contacts are appreciated.

be great to have a photo of the plant you ask about.... i wonder if it's Mexican Tea plant.. though not a tea as we know teas.. but an herb used in mexican dishes.. for salsa.. I have several i bought at Kings... The plant is about 1.5 or less tall, it has a tall white cone shape flowers and very wonderful aromas.. THe leaves of this plant is used for culinary ... maybe this helps?

Hello Helen - do have a look at the welcome page if you havent already. The site is new and will grow and evolve quickly in response to our vision and your needs.

That's an awesome list of things you are growing! A serious gardener. You can probably help others with advice with all the learning you must be doing.

It would be great to see a pic of yourself up here - it really helps. So if you need help getting your photo up here, please sing out. To get you started on that, you can go to "My Page" and on the left hand side you'll see "Change My Photo"

And if you do a search for Auckland in the Members page from time to time, you might be surprised to find other people near you, who you can start exchanging things with. And if you don't, then it could be a good reason to go out and find some people to invite :-)
