Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
I used to work at Kaituna Orchards where we grow Summer Fruits. and vineyards growing excellent Pinot Noir. At the Orchard Cottage, I embark on a journey of creating a forest garden of my own definition. I follow the works of Rudolf Steiner and Kay Baxter. My garden is a continual creative experiment, and co-creation with Mother Earth.

Hey Justin, hope you are having a good weekend :-) I've copied the Sun/Shade preferences for the trees you asked about from Martin Crawford's Creating A Forest Garden, they're all listed under the canopy species. You could also ask this question in the Food Forest Group: http://ooooby.ning.com/group/foodforestsnz
HI Justin, I have a couple of varieties of tomato seed that I successfully grow outside in Greymouth, ie same latitude. One is called yellow taxi, and the other is called kotlas, they are dwarf determinate plants and not big croppers but reliably ripen for me. if you would like to try them I could send you some seeds, alternatively you could join the southern seed exchange which I send seed to
