Hi Kirsten. You just added me as a friend on here with the suggestion that I might be a repository of garden / orchid information. However, my gardening knowledge is quite limited having simply dabbled in it from year to year. These days I don't spend much time doing it beyond growing micro greens and caring for my fruit trees, so I would advise seeking advice from some other more informed sources on this web sight, or a man called Wally Richards who is based in Parmerston North http://www.gardenews.co.nz/page1.htm

Cheers.

No Saturday I'm at a titirangi book festival event early morning then teaching jewellery late morning. I'll call you.

OK I could do with some more greens. I call you. And you can come back here for a look at our place afterwards. How about that.

Your clippings are warming my compost right now! Thanks a lot, Kirsty.
I was checking it, stirring it up a bit and noticed it was a bit dry so gently watered the compost and steam started rising! Brilliant.
You'll have to come and visit, see the final resting home of your grass!

Hi, I'm the guy wanting lawn clippings! Let's talk. Phone no below.

On another issue did you know the ooooby boxes https://www.ooooby.org/ are apparently out West now? I signed up today, give them a shot. I hope we don't get brussels sprouts every time.

 

Cheers
