Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) 19 Sep, Trish (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Hi All. We have a very healthy cape gooseberry plant. Heaps of flowers and fruit and thriving on neglect to a certain degree (thank goodness for drip systems). I am in Brisbane and we are now getting something burrowing into the fruit. Never had issues previously and can't seem to see any grubs. Any ideas or assistance on dealing with these would be helpful. Thanks.

Pak Choy (also Pak choi) 19 Sep, warwick (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
i can not seem to find the answer to the question and that is will this do ok in part shade
Pak Choy (also Pak choi) 23 Sep, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Position: Part or full sun, well drained soil
Pak Choy (also Pak choi) 22 Sep, Darren (Australia - temperate climate)
Going by your region, I would say possibly only in the summer months, depending on how much shade you mean. I live in a warm temperate region, and grow it in full sun, all year round.
Garlic 19 Sep, Fred (Australia - temperate climate)

Kohlrabi 18 Sep, gordon (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
this is my first year growing kohlrabi, I love it, the flavor is different , but great, one thing though, ants love it to, they make holes into the plant, have to put ant dust or some thing on them, full of sugar. planted many new things this year, due to making more raised garden beds, red cabbage, Daikon, chard, Celeriac, red and brown onions, had a great season this year with snow and honey peas, many different lettuces this year great harvest, planted grafted apple tree, grafted peach and nectarine tree, nashi pears, grapes and passionfruit, why buy fruit and veg from the shop and not know how old it is or what they have done to it.
Kohlrabi 23 Sep, Lesley Hay (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Hi, I have just started my garden and as I prepared the soil I found ants everywhere, but I read somewhere that putting powdered cinnamon around the garden edge would stop the ants as they apparently don't like the sticky powder as it sticks to their legs. I did and it has worked so far. Have to retouch if I overwater the area, but I'm happier without green ant bites.... The joy of my garden is the growing and reaping the rewards of fresh veggies and herbs. Because I do sometimes wonder by the time we use all our fertilisers....I think the cost is a bit high...

Rhubarb 17 Sep, Julie (Australia - temperate climate)
I have been growing one rhubarb crown in a pot for 12 months. The stalks are very thin but tasty. Just bought a much bigger pot & some compost to replant it into. Should I put the pot up on bricks like my lemon tree or just on the ground?
Rhubarb 23 Sep, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
In a pot it requires more care and attention. Good soil and a regular fertilizing to produce good stalks. I don't think it really matters if it is raised or not.

Watermelon 14 Sep, william (South Africa - Summer rainfall climate)
Were can I find watermelons in limpopo
Garlic 13 Sep, Saffron (Australia - temperate climate)
I have planted garlic 4 weeks ago I water them everyday, Prior to planting I seperate cloves, I'm wondering when they'll be ready ? It is getting into warmer weather here around 17-23 degrees everyday. Also the green leaves have become soft and are no longer upright they're so soft and floppy.
Garlic 14 Sep, Patrick (Australia - temperate climate)
I think Garlic takes a lot longer than 4 weeks to be ready (i think closer to 6 months)
Garlic 17 Sep, Tony (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
As the garlic profile says above, planting time was autumn. Pay attention to the saying: "Plant on the shortest day and harvest on the longest".
Sunflower 13 Sep, Gary Barr (USA - Zone 12b climate)
I live in an area with typically 150 - 200 inches of rain (although not this year) and a temperature range of 55 - 85 - but mostly 60-75 degrees. Soil tends to be on the acidic side (volcanic soils) I'm interested in knowing if there are varieties of sunflowers that will grow in these conditions and also are good for honey production. Thanks
Beans - climbing (also Pole beans, Runner beans, Scarlet Runners) 13 Sep, PETER B HART (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Please can anyone in your organisation assist and guide me. I live in Sydney Australia. I am looking for information on vegie plants and herbs. I have a lot of time as a retired person. I also have space to grow vegies. However for the last two years I have failed. Along the brustic fences I have prepared beds of 1.5 mtrs x 6 mtrs. Good super soil as called by the supplier, was put in to the beds for a depth of a foot. I also have my own compost bins and put in a lot of effort in mixing etc through the year. So this compost of 40 : 1 Brown and Gtreen matter, is also added. the plants start well and for all the effort i get about 3 cucumbers and other beans, Oakra, capsicums etc grow halfway and then die. Presently in spring they get partial sunlight, but not a lot of direct sunlight. Could the neighboring tree roots be responsible for this problem. I love my gardening and spend at least 4 hours or more a day. PLeeeeese can anyone help me or can I talk to someone. A Horticulturalist might help me. Thank you so much in anticipation. Warm regards Peter
