"Wandering Jew is fine. They will only eat so much of it as Kali said. Can't see them getting into ivy or anything from the Convovulaceae family for more than a quick test."

"We had some Rhode Island Reds that would pop them out fairly regular. And We named the Cockerel "Buffy, The Vampire Slayer" because he was huge and you didn't want to mess with him. But then neither did the foxes."

Hi there "007".

I have recently moved to Brisbane (Manly) from NZ and am very keen to make more of a home garden, and buy local produce as well.

I love the Ooooby concept and want to promote it to others.

Would it be possible for us to meet and maybe I can check out your garden (I imagine mine is smaller...I'm in an apartment) and pick your brains about how I am best to handle the weather, watering, best plants etc, where to buy local etc.

I have just spent some time at Samakanda in Sri Lanka and spent some time germinating seeds for planting in their gardens. Great experience.

You can call me at home 39070809 or mobile 04 0059 6670.  Barbara
