moggy replied to Pam's discussion Dill in the group Herbs
"You can use dill seeds as you would the leaves, just use less as they are stronger in flavour. My favourite salad is cooked grated beetroot, chopped onion, S+P, vinegar oil and either fresh dill or dill seeds and some fresh parsely. Stores for quite…"

moggy replied to Sonja's discussion Looking for wild garlic in the group New Zealand Seed and Plant Exchange
"bulbs would be easier, but you cannot import them, seeds only. Whilst looking for the seeds I came across no reference to it being a pest, in fact 3 of us have been trying to grow it from seed with no success for 2 years."

moggy replied to Sonja's discussion Looking for wild garlic in the group New Zealand Seed and Plant Exchange
"It is very difficult to come by. In the end I got i via someone who had a friend in Germany who sent it. The first lot did not germinate, but I did not know you had to freeze the seed to break dormancy.  However this current lot has not…"

moggy commented on Sealander's group Southern Seed Exchange
"Anything that is commercially packaged and is not on the list of banned plants (there is a MAF web page that you can look them up on) can be brought in no hassles. I have just returned from the UK with 2 packets of mushroom spore & some melon…"

moggy commented on Sealander's group Southern Seed Exchange
"Hanna, pretty sure it is buckthorn as I have seen berries on similar plants, though not those particular ones as I only went there the once. Where it is growing is exceptionally exposed which is why it is more compact that normal. It is down near…"

moggy commented on Sealander's group Southern Seed Exchange
"It think this is the stuff, badly wind beaten, which is not surprising given to where it is. If we were still living at the last house, could have got some easily for you, but without a quad bike it is a bit inaccessible."

moggy replied to Teeli's discussion Help! Birds are getting my elderberries! in the group Food Growing Q&A
"If the birds are eating it, it means the fruit is ripe, so get out there and pick it. The only other alternative is to cover it with netting if it is small enough."

moggy replied to Mariana's discussion Growing licorice from seed in the group Herbs
"I wish I had realised the fragrant garden stocked it, I was there twice this winter buying loads of trees in their half price sale. (their plants are really good quality btw) You have made me really happy that I didn't buy those five seeds."

moggy replied to Mariana's discussion Growing licorice from seed in the group Herbs
"I haven't mainly because I  have not found a seed supply except for someone selling 5 seeds for a stupid price on trademe and I refused to pay that as I had heard that germination rate is not good. Where did you get your seeds from?"

"Don't worry about frosts, they are native to Northern Europe which gets very sever winters"

moggy replied to Mariana's discussion Imagine if we grew a vast public Food Forest like this in Christchurch... in the group Christchurch Permaculture Group
"It is roughly what we are doing here, when we came up with the idea, it didn't have a fancy name, it just seemed like a good way to go about things. It still involves a lot of work to maintain and in our case until the plants are big enough to…"

Hello Moggy, have posted some tree onion bulbils to you today :)

Hello Moggy, I grow walking onions which I think might be the same thing as tree onions the bulbils are only starting to form now. I could send you some in a couple of months.

what do you need to do to import seeds?

Hey Moggy,

I lost your e-mail, sorry, if you still want some vine cuttings, email me on the vine (grape vine) looks dry with no leaves, I am still learning about gardening.... Happy to give you my phone number, but prefer to do so via email.

Again sorry for the delay....

Hi Moggy, thanks for letting me know about this site. Martin and I could come by in the weekend if that works for you to shoot some chickens (this still sounds awful!). I could bring the sitar and any shrubs I manage to uplift before then.

HI Moggy, just recieved an email newsletter from ginnys herbs, she has licorice seedlings for sale.

it was several years ago I got seeds from them,  oh well I will read up about dividing and growing from stolons, wont be for a while anyhow, will wait until late autumn to dig it up and see what the roots have done this year.

HI Moggy, I have heard that if you put an upturned pot with scrunched up newspaper in it earwigs will go there to sleep in the daytime, and you can then dispose of them. perhaps worth a try.
At 8:07am on January 14, 2011, Hester said…
Hi Moggy. If you post your question about earwigs on the group 'Food Growing Questions and Answers' you might get a better response. Hope this helps.
