Hi all, I'm trying a few seeds saving groups as I'm looking for some particular Corn seeds to purchase - Silver Platinum. Appreciate any help.

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.

Nigel, nice to see you this morning. How do I recognise you on facebook? There are a lot to choose from.

Thanks for that Robyn, hopefully I'll be out there today or next week

Hello, Daniel.  Maureen reigned from the garden some months ago due to bad health but she still is a customer now and then.

Hi All. I havent stopped by for a while, great to see interest in the oooby philosophy. I have been working very loong hours/weeks so my garden has suffered the effects of neglect. THey bees are all tucked up for winter....the amoint of rain we have had over the last few months has seen them use a lot of their winter stores up very fast. Looking forward to spring and getting the veggie garden back on track, I have leeks, silverbeet and rhubarb in at the moment. 

Robyn I know Maureen (was Flogdell) that works with you in the community garden, I used to live in Dannevirke when Maureen and late husband Wally. Say hi for me.

Nigel! We do have kale seedlings at the Braeside site. The variety is Squire.

Nigel. Come and see us at the Tokoroa Community Gardens, Braeside Avenue, Tokoroa...just off SH1 on the Maraetai Rd (the road to Mangakino and Tok Hospital) Just 100, on the left look for our yellow sandwich board. Turn left through the big gates and straight on to the fence, then along to the right you will find us....6 mornings a week 8.30 -12, winter hours and 8-12 in summer. We have all the vege plants you could wish for. I'll check to see if we have kale but pretty sure.  We grow a lot of it. We love visitors and if you like vege growing we will probably blow your socks off!

Anyone know if they sell Kale seedlings at the Tokoroa Saturday Market, as I can't seem to find them anywhere and last year they were my star crop
