    using wood ash from fire place or fire pit in compost?

    Ahah, oops. I've been a little unwell lately, so I made a slip up. You are right. Cheers for the correction :)

    using wood ash from fire place or fire pit in compost?

    I'm not entirely sure on this topic as I can't use my ashes in my garden (as granndad likes to burn plastic in the same pile - sigh). But I believe that manure and wood ash compliment eachother well, as both individually could change the soil's PH. Personally I would invest in a soil PH meter...

    Hello from Urs in Brisbane Valley

    Welcome to the forum @Urs ! Haha, I bet the animals love snacking on your plants if they get the opportunity. When I first started my plants were struggling too - turns out my soil was no good! I invested in some good soil for my potted plants and suddenly they thrive! Now I've got plants that...

    What did you harvest today? Megathread

    As all my seedlings died during my holiday October/November, I haven't got anything to show sadly. But I did start new seedlings and if all goes well, will have plenty this upcoming Autumn and Winter. I am mostly excited for Winter though, as I want to grow lettuce, spinach, and other...

    SelfSufficiant Gardenventure in eastern Germany

    Looks like both you and nature herself are working equally hard to get growing again. Look at those little buds 😍 Good catch on the compost. I don't think I'd recognise issues myself. Perhaps because I've never made compost in the past. I am interested in it, but I doubt that starting it...

    In the pursuit of freedom

    It's part of the reason why I try to grow new cuttings frequently, so that I can spread the love. I already have the plant growing, why not share it for free? Spread the love? I have plenty, so others may as well enjoy it too.

    Why Keeping Chickens is a "BAD" Idea | World Egg Crisis

    We have no forestry, really. Just some cows in our backpaddock. I was hoping to maybe get chooks in the future, when I produce more and hence produce more scraps that they can eat. To top that... my biggest pest issues are grasshoppers (and fruit flies in Summer). Hope they might chase those...

    Why Keeping Chickens is a "BAD" Idea | World Egg Crisis

    I'd love to keep chooks, but I'm afraid there's too many snakes around here and I can't affort snake-proofing. That, and I live on a highway. A flat chook is no good. What are all of your experiences? :)

    Tahitian Lime Tree

    Very much an option. If that's the case it should spring right back up once the weather levels out a bit again.

    Tahitian Lime Tree

    Hiya @Lowe . There are many reasons as to why this could happen. Firstly I usually check for pests and/or diseases. Secondly, has the weather suddenly changed? I've got a potted citrus tree, and I've learnt that they can drop leaves during heat and/or water stress.

    Motorised wheelbarrows

    I don't have any experience with those sadly, but I did hear good things in the oast ariund motorised wheelbarrows. Well, epsiecally those with a little step on the back, so you don't have to walk anymore either, when it's at least semi-balanced (as the step also had wheels, to take some of your...
