    New asparagus bed

    My asparagus plant is still mostly green...I am just waiting for them to die off and I will feed and mulch them. The plant has 'its own corner' in the vegie cage.

    Hi, I'm Heather from Clunes in Central Victoria.

    Welcome Central Vic Gardner, I'd be intrigued to know why you chose Victoria (and I am not having a go at you re COVID). We grew up in Sydney too and have moved around quite a bit but chose Brisbane to retire. I agree with Mary, plant fruit trees now. I had 38 local and exotic fruit tree...

    Cheap Galvanised Garden Bed

    What to grow ?

    Sorry to hear of neighbour’s position on passionfruit. I like them. A year or so ago my neighbour had vine growing like crazy. He sent a Shute my way and we enjoyed many fine fruit. Currently our choko vine is growing so well but no fruit yet. Best of luck Dan

    What to grow ?

    I guess there are many things to grow and depends which produce / appearance you want to achieve. If along a fence boundary you could try choko or passionfruit. If you have a garden bed there, then maybe choose from a range of vegetables from Good luck.

    Mine are growing well, thanks Tony. I have some frangipanis potted up for you. I am away for two weeks but should be home 13 Mar and perhaps we could meet up so I can give you some, if you still want them. I have given a couple of these away but most still available to you Tony.
