    LOL calliecat your right about pulling them apart …………. which is why it is important to spread accurate information and expirience

  • replied to the topic Wicking beds-best option? in the forum Vegetables 9 years, 3 months ago

    All I am saying is not ALL of them 600mm high as it makes picking and managing tall vegies harder. Think about how high your tomatoโ€™s are when staked and add another 600 mm on top of that. There are lots of vegies that get affected by the decision.
    We put gravel in the base of ours and you have to be very careful when you tip that onto the p…[Read more]

    Love mine, but! *laughing* there is always one. Anyway, I built mine 600mm high, not sure I would do that again or not all of them, I have 6 mets in total. I did not put down any barrier between the water level and the soil and, while one is working perfectly the other one has lost heaps of soil to the water area, so will have to be rectified. Do…[Read more]

    Yeahhhhh How do they do that? mail out seedlings I mean …. they pack them? what about the soil? I am really naive it seems because I have not ordered any seedlings on line being concerned they would arrive in a terrible mess. :shrug:

    Yep Earthworm,
    those are the ones I have used on a regualar basis and too many people have told me recently they are not renewing theor Diggers membership for me to consider going back to them. I am also pleased I have found Phoenix and Southern Seeds also.

    Yes Lizzy,

    it is how I got a copy of the catelogue, I emailed and asked for one, and then by return email it was sent ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Thanks Matthew and Sonya ๐Ÿ™‚ that does give me some idea. and that David Murphy’s count rose so much does not surprise me. This is a new idea to me BUT for the last 2 years I have been using Molasses with seasol and powerfeed as a hose on application. The plants? well they just loved it you could see a noticable difference after 24 hours i swear.…[Read more]

  • Hi Guys,
    can I reserect this and ask.if you put seaweed and fish emulsion into this brew as well as molasses does it mean you do not need to use these products on your garden? If this is correct it will mean a huge saving. Also, from what I have read I was asuming this was only to be spaied on? Think I really need some clarification. HELP!

  • replied to the topic Seed Companies in the forum Vegetables 9 years, 9 months ago

    Agreed PeterD and Kristy go to you local market and see if you have someone local able to supply you with what you want. You could also ask on here, it is anazing what people have in there own backyards which they maybe willing to SELL you. I think this is a wonderful source this forum here and instead of expecting something for nothing some…[Read more]

  • Further to what Porgey said about Peter Cundall. He also uses it in his video, “A Year in Pete’s Patch”. Unless my memory is deteriorating I believe he says he got excellent results trialling it with sweetcorn, it really increased his yield. He also trailed it with Tomatoes, but did not believe it made any difference. I do stand to be corrected it…[Read more]

    Thanks for that Veginout that is what I suspected happened.
    Can I ask how long have you been selling at Markets for ?

  • replied to the topic Seed Companies in the forum Vegetables 9 years, 9 months ago

    Hi Patsy,
    I have previously used all those sellers also and I do agree with you Diggers has dropped off and while you live in Qld I live in Vic and have not had as much success with Diggers as I have had from the other companies.

    To be really honest, I have started selling Herbs and a few vegetable seedlings at a local market on a weekly basis…[Read more]

    Bel,
    that is a really kind offer, you so typify the people and the spirit of this group of people who are joined by this forum.
    Thank you to all who have responded and I have to say the responses have been interesting. What I find a tad more difficult since the forum format has changed is having a rough area you all come from, but I found it…[Read more]

  • Len, in some ways your correct, especially when you say they do not care about the poor. The wealthy will always be wealthy and it is not so much about luck or hard work as about what family you were born into and the old boysโ€™ network, which is alive and well.
    As for C/C well it is why I posted this, because in all honesty I am totally lost. I…[Read more]
