Choko/Chayote (also Chayote squash, christophene, chouchou, mirliton) 21 Oct, Carine (Australia - temperate climate)
I notice that someone asked the question of where you can source choko tubers, but there is no reply. I would be interested to know as I am looking for some tubers myself. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. With many thanks.

Buy from a shop then leave them sit in the cupboard or windowsill. Go to google and research how to grow choko.

I have strawberry plant in terracotta pot. huge number of berries but they get soft patches before ripening and taste awful, sour but juicy. They are beautiful in colour and smell very berry like. Its under eastern facing stairs, gets some direct sun but mostly filtered light, has a saucer, has had liquid flowering fertilizer each 2 weeks. thanks everyone

Tomato 17 Oct, lindsayshand (New Zealand - temperate climate)
what can i use to set my tomatoes to fruit
Tomato 18 Oct, Anon (New Zealand - sub-tropical climate)
A few tips on growing tomatoes - make sure you have good rich prepared soil. Dig a hole 50cm deep and 60cm diameter. Put compost/manure into the soil or a hand full of fertiliser and mix it in. Plant the tomato in a bit of a hole and as it grows fill the hole in. Give tomatoes a good deep watering. Too much N and you will have a lot of leaves and little fruit. Too little fertiliser and you will have a small plant and a little crop. The secret is to know how much fert to put on and when. And start with a good strong seedling.

Radish 11 Oct, Danny (New Zealand - temperate climate)
why are my radish going to seed? Have very big top and no radish.. have done for about 3 years .
Radish 14 Oct, anon (New Zealand - sub-tropical climate)
If they have very big leafy tops you are over fertilising BIG TIME. Plant radish after a leafy crop so that a lot of the N has been used. My experience is to grow radish into winter -sub tropical.
