Is it ok to grow Rhubarb next to my Asparagus bed?
Rhubarb 17 Mar, (Australia - temperate climate)
Have a think about it. Asparagus has a tall fern on it most of the year - do you want it shading the rhubarb?

What’s a good position for them in terms of sun? I’m in Melbourne.
Asparagus 18 Mar, Mike (Australia - temperate climate)
Full sun probably in temperate zone.
Pumpkin 15 Mar, LESLEY MCCUBBIN (Australia - temperate climate)
I am trying to grow Queensland Blue pumpkins. They are next to a lavendar bush and well polinated. Lots of baby pumpkins, but they do not grow very big before they go yellow and die. Some of the leaves have gone brown, so I have removed them. Any thoughts on how I can remedy the situation.
Pumpkin 17 Mar, (Australia - temperate climate)
You have lavender but do you have bees? Do some research about the subject - going yellow and falling off. In temperate climate I would start my pumpkins in Sept Oct and grow into the summer. Prepare - manure/compost/fertiliser the soil for a few weeks before planting and plant in a different position each year.
Pumpkin 18 Mar, LESLEY MCCUBBIN (Australia - temperate climate)
Thanks. I do have lots of bees. The grandchildren love to watch them in the pumpkin flowers..so no problem there. I planted them in Oct. and manured, composted and fertilized the soil, but at time of planting,not 2 weeks before. Does this make a difference? Thanks for the tip, I will do some more research.
Beans - broad beans, fava beans (also Fava bean) 14 Mar, jake (New Zealand - temperate climate)

Garlic 12 Mar, Paul Riley (Australia - temperate climate)
Where is the best place to source shot garlic cloves in the Riverland and what kind grows best here?
Garlic 14 Mar, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Do some internet research.
Pumpkin 12 Mar, Bincy Philip (Australia - temperate climate)
Do not water pumpkin plants in the evening. If the leaves stay wet in the night, there are higher chances of powdery mildew.

Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) 12 Mar, Vertical Gardener (Canada - Zone 8a Mild Temperate climate)
In case anyone is still searching, West Coast Seeds in BC offers cape gooseberry seeds. I've had success with their seeds, as well as seeds purchased through eBay from various sellers. Once you have berries you'll never have to purchase seeds again. In fact, I have to cull plants that self-seed each spring from the prior year's crop.
Pumpkin 11 Mar, Judy (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
i live in Tasmania, and have self seed pumpkin plants which look healthy. It is now March and they have produced only male flowers. Is it too late for them to produce pumpkins now, even if they do ever produce female flowers?
