  • Hi, just wondering if there is anyone in Hamilton who has a bantam they would like to sell? I am willing to pay $10. We are planning on hatching some eggs and already have one bantam, but want to hatch 1dz eggs and I think that might be too many for 1 bantam. Thanks in advance.

  • I'm looking for a reliable supply of early seed potatoes(NZ pref Waikato). Traditional white/ yellow potatoes.

    So far all the suggestion sent by some kind OOOby member have been unsuccessful.

    • Davd of Kaiwai does not accept emails from non pre- approved sources & I have no idea as to how else to contact him.
    • Local nurseries only get stocks in well after i need to start planting.
  • Is anyone growing Goumi, Atumn Olive or any of the the other Elaeagnus family and would be willing to let me take some cuttings? could swap for cape gooseberry seedlings :)

  • Anyone had any success in growing mushrooms? 

  • Like Cat Kelly , I'm also looking for some water kefir grains if anyone has some. I have little artichoke seedlings to swap or offer to anyone.
  • I want to make some water kefir but am struggling to find some water kefir starter grains.  Does anyone know of anyone who has spare to give away or where I can get/buy some? need the water ones not the milk ones.  I have aloe vera plants (the ones with the sharp spikes) I can swap or exhange for some kefir grains.

Fruit cages

Does anyone have experience in building fruit cages. I don't mind sharing some of my fruit with birds, but I now live next ot a vineyard and the hundreds of birds strip everything. So, I'm looking at building a large walk-in netted cage to house a range of soft fruits. Desing ideas and practical tips would be most welcome. Thanks

Raspberry canes anyone?

My raspberries were fabulous last year but  are popping up new suckers in places they shouldn't this year.  If anyone is interested and willing to come around and dig  up  the suckers , they are welcome to them. They take 2 - 3 years to really start producing but last year we got close to a pudding bowl a night for a month or so... absolutely magic and they conveniently had their last crop on Christmas day and were finished just in time for us to go on holiday!  They have had very little…
