"I find it is the variety that is the big difference. Of course it also depends on your land. If are going to have your garlic ripening in heavy wet clay that floods in the middle of winter, that obviously is not going to help, but the same garlic…"
"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…"
"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."
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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."
"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."
"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?"
I lost your e-mail, sorry, if you still want some vine cuttings, email me on email@example.com 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.
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.
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.
