    Vegie Bake

    ClissAT your vegie bake looks wonderful, I am so envious. To be able to go out to the garden and pick a whole meal is my dream, as they say small steps lead to big things.

    Dragon fruit support frame.

    ClissAT thanks for the tip, it sounds like a great way to keep dragon cuttings when you haven’t got the time to pot them up, I’m all for things that make life a little easier. My dragons are only small at the moment but once they get big enough I’m hoping to share and this will work a treat.:D

    Dragon fruit (pitaya)

    We are looking at planting them in our garden bed which receives about six hours of full sun and dappled shade the rest of the day. We have hardwood stakes etc all ready to put in so I’m really pleased that they are not invasive, I would much rather have them in the ground than in a pot.

    Dragon fruit support frame.

    Such a shame to have such a healthy plant and not get fruit. I’m not sure what actually pollinates them but I have read you can hand pollinate if you are so inclined.

    Rosella jam making

    Thanks Mark for the info, I’m not sure why I assumed they were perennial.:oops: Are they easy to propagate from seed or is best to buy new plants the following season?

    Rosella jam making

    Hi Mark, I enjoyed your video as I love rosella jam. I was thinking of putting in a couple of plants and was wondering how long they are usually productive for, and how often they fruit, once or twice a year?

    Tip Very Good Ideas for raised Beds

    Great video, I particularly liked the way he set up his trellis as I have trouble getting those longer stakes far enough in the ground to be stable.
