"Hi Vivien, I would love to have a tamarillo seedling! I'm doing a garden for a man who really wants one. What do you want in exchange or cash, either is fine. I have baby native seedlings - karaka, mahoe, kowhai, hebe. Where do you live?"

"Hey Jocelyn. Hmmmm I wish I could draw you a picture about this. Well, get some bamboo stakes and tie your plant shoots/branches along them and angle then upwards at a diagonal, not completely perpendicular to the main leader. Once the plant has…"

"Hmmm. I wonder if it might be worth posting this to the Christchurch Group page. That way you will be talking to locals. You could pop it up as a comment as well as possibly start a tool share forum."

tools anyone? tidying up your garden shed?

Hi everyone,I'm currently building-up my own supply of gardening tools and returning the set I've borrowed from a range of friends and family. As I like to re-use as a first preference to buying new, I'm posting a notice to buy good garden tools which people no longer have a need for, perhaps you have a double up for some reason?In particular I have an eye out for: good loppers, hedge clippers, secateurs, hoe, rake, garden broom, pruning saw, wheelbarrow for a start! Any help would be much…See More

Love the name by the way... the tamarillo seedlings took a hit recently in the glass house but appear to be recovering slowly (a frost managed to get in when we had one down to -5 C outside) I would be interested in a hebe seedling in return but better make sure these seedlings are going to recover before I pass one your way!
