Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
My gardens are currently around 10yrs old, and i have built up the soil from poor, sandy soil on a newly built house/section, to a healthy, rich topsoil. I grow mostly weirdo stuff and i am a strict heritage grower. I also run a nationwide initiative called Seed Savers NZ, and i grow most of my vegetables for the seed.
I also have an extensive collection of Orchids, Oxalis, Begonias and Cacti
Feel free to check out my Seed Library :) If you know the Botanical name for any of the varieties i have that dont have a botanical name next to them, let me know!

I would love some chilli seeds, bit of dried chilli wouldnt go astray either. Give me a call on 8565320 tomorrow afternoon/evening and we could orgainise something. I am in Tamahere but will be out and about over the other side of town at some stage.
Love your photos. Most amazing collection I have ever seen.
Re the Inga Bean cuttings. I checked on the plant yesterday. At the moment it looks like a skeleton...but there appears to be tiny shoots about 2cm long just starting. When these grow long enough I will send you cuttings. Had better have your address, and will make sure you are home when I send them.
