Rosella (also Queensland Jam Plant, Roselle) 16 Jun, Judy Budgen (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Full grown rosella bushes looking very healthy, and then suddenly wilting and dying for no visable reason. They were just starting to flower and some very starting to set fruit. Any help would be appreciated.
Broccoli 14 Jun, Patricia Foster (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Here in central Florida, we grew enormous broccoli plants but they never produced anything, even after six months growing. We put the seedlings in the ground in October in a marl soil that retains moisture and also used plenty of compost and some 10-10-10. Any ideas what went wrong or what we should do to amend the soil?
Garlic 14 Jun, James Agius (Australia - temperate climate)
thanks for the advise james
Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) 14 Jun, Quincy (South Africa - Semi-arid climate)
Why do okra rot during flowering stage
Garlic 14 Jun, Jill (New Zealand - temperate climate)
I have an 8cm tray. Would this be deep enough to grow garlic in?
Garlic 13 Jun, Michael Archer (Australia - temperate climate)
Well, I thought that the little clove of garlic that I plucked 2 weeks ago was a bit odd, but today 13th June another fully matured single clove. Planted in early March . The rest look good and on time I think
Capsicum (also Bell peppers, Sweet peppers) 12 Jun, Corry (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
new to vege growing. Have noted on several vege instructions "P" for sowing seed and "S" for plant undercover in seed trays. Could someone explain the difference to me please?
Capsicum (also Bell peppers, Sweet peppers) 13 Jun, Liz at Gardenate (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Some seeds, e.g. capsicum, need more warmth or protection to germinate, so we suggest that they are started in seed trays or pots in a sheltered spot i.e cool greenhouse, covered patio or similar. Once established the seedlings can be planted out. Other seeds like broad beans can be sown direct, in the place where they will grow.
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 11 Jun, Wyndi (USA - Zone 7a climate)
I live in southern Idaho (zone 7) We have had an incredibly cold, wet spring. It is now mid June, would it still be possible to have success planting seeds now?
Ginger 11 Jun, Taryna Koo (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Young ginger will taste mild while old ginger will taste more fiery. When you harvest your ginger root, was it the 'young' or 'old' part of the root?
Potato 10 Jun, Ol' Dazza (Australia - cool/mountain climate)

Potato 13 Jun, Jello (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Most decent nursery's will stock seed potatoes. Failing that, you can buy them online.

A produce agency (Farming) - Bunnings, Nursery.
Ginger 10 Jun, ambrosio dante brito (Australia - temperate climate)
I live in Perth WA, I like to know when is the best time to plant Ginger from Rhizome. Many thanks
Ginger 11 Jun, (Australia - temperate climate)
Perth is temperate - in temperate it says can't grow in WA. If you read about ginger it says warm weather - so obviously you would plant in warm part of the year - like late spring early summer.
Peas 08 Jun, Jessica Ipina (USA - Zone 9a climate)
I was a little confused. I got a planting reminder from the Old Farmers Almanac that it was time to plant peas June 8th, in zone 9a. Isn't it too hot?
Peas 09 Jun, Liz (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Hi Jessica, have a look at this page and ignore the O F A advice for peas.

Too much N. Water them. Pick them before they seed.
