Choko/Chayote (also Chayote squash, christophene, chouchou, mirliton) 16 Nov, Alice (Australia - temperate climate)
Where can you get choko from to plant
Choko/Chayote (also Chayote squash, christophene, chouchou, mirliton) 20 Nov, Mike (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
Buy one and keep it inside - when it starts spouting time to plant in the garden.
Brussels sprouts 16 Nov, Agnes James (Australia - temperate climate)
I am in Melbourne, planted Brussel Sprouts late September, they went into flower and seed now, only few tiny bulbs looking BS on the base, further up all opened up and going to flower. What should I do? Thank you
Brussels sprouts 20 Nov, Mike (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
Did you check any planting guide for BS? You planted them about 3-4 mths too late. Dig them in.
Eggplant (also Aubergine) 15 Nov, Ian Gall (New Zealand - sub-tropical climate)
I, m growing my egg plant in a tunnel house, the leaves are turning black? What to do?
Eggplant (also Aubergine) 21 Nov, rachel (New Zealand - cool/mountain climate)
it's most likely a fungus, you need to spray with something like organic copper
Eggplant (also Aubergine) 20 Nov, Michael (New Zealand - temperate climate)
I have the opposite - all the lower leaves are turning yellow! But at least I have a couple of dark fruit growing fast.
Garlic 14 Nov, Brittney Benèa Byrd (USA - Zone 9a climate)
I live in Zone 9a. Has anyone had any luck planting garlic in zone 9a? I am going to give it my best shot - it's in my refrigerator. Been reading about vernalization. If it would cool off here for any extended length of time I hope to get my cloves planted.
Onion 14 Nov, rob (Australia - temperate climate)
onions are going to seed . Should I pick now or wait till they brown
Onion 20 Nov, Mike (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
In future pick before they seed or when you first see them starting to seed.
Onion 15 Nov, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Pick them and then leave in the sun for a few days to brown off.

Broccoli 14 Nov, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Search the internet for diseases of broccoli.
Broccoli 14 Nov, Larry Krieg (Australia - temperate climate)
Try looking up White blister (Albugo candida). I get this is my broccoli at times and it may be what you are observing. There are pictures on the website Cheers Larry
Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) 13 Nov, Colin (Australia - temperate climate)
I am a proud owner of one cape gooseberry "bush". I am experimenting with propagation by cuttings, taken from vigorous side shoots down low near the ground surface. Has anyone propagated with cuttings. After some 4 weeks the one cutting I have taken appears to have "taken" and looks healthy. There are many new side shoots on my "bush" and I wish to take many more cuttings. Has any one been down this path. Any problems I should be aware of.? I live in Western Victoria, on hours drive from the coast. Thank you in anticipation. Colin
Tomato 14 Nov, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I have read that you can pinch out the laterals (the new shot where the leaf joins the stem) of tomatoes and put that in water and start a new plant. Maybe try that. Can only give it a go or buy some seeds from :The seed collection company" - out of stock at the moment. 200 seeds for $1 + postage.
Cucumber 12 Nov, Sam (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I have small 1 1/2cm cucumbers all over my plant. But they are not growing any bigger. They have been this size for weeks. Any help would be appreciated!
Cucumber 13 Nov, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Probably need bees or hand pollinate them. Check if there is male and female flowers.
Capsicum (also Bell peppers, Sweet peppers) 12 Nov, Jack (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Is it to late to grow capsicum
Capsicum (also Bell peppers, Sweet peppers) 12 Nov, Liz (New Zealand - temperate climate)
You might be lucky, capsicum like heat and our summer seems to be very slow starting. It is worth a try.
Garlic 10 Nov, Mandi Prinsloo (South Africa - Summer rainfall climate)
Hi there, I stay in Limpopo province. I have some bulbs that have jyst stated sprouting. Can I plant them now?
NZ Spinach (also Warrigal greens) 10 Nov, Evelyn Corbett (USA - Zone 10b climate)
Where can I get seeds of Warrigal Spinach?I live in Evant Texas, will it grow here in hot dry climate?
NZ Spinach (also Warrigal greens) 13 Nov, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
You need to try and see if you can buy it from seed selling companies in the USA - it probably will grow - can handle hot and dryish conditions.
Ginger 10 Nov, Fiona murati (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I going to try and plant the Ginger now it is budding and got compost which now ginger is in I have watered it I just want to know how long does it take to grow is it (ready) when the leaves die off
Ginger 13 Nov, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Go to gardeningknowhow on the net and read up. Takes about 10 mths.
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 09 Nov, Dale (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I have planted 2 zucchini seeds close to each other and about 60 to 80 cm further on another 2 seeds close together.( as they say to plant 2 or 3 seeds in a clump and then keep only the healthiest one) Well , 2 came up so healthy ,right next to each other, and I don't want to pull out one and throw it away...can I re plant it or just leave it there (about 3 or 4 weeks old) The other 2 don't look as healthy,(not sure why that is .)
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 10 Nov, Mike (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
It might be a bit late to transplant now - you will really set it back by transplanting it. Next time don't plant them so close. When you transplant always try and have soil around the roots. Leave it there but keep the water up and maybe a touch of fert in a couple of weeks.
Spinach (also English spinach) 09 Nov, Meta (New Zealand - sub-tropical climate)
i cant really understand, why growing spinach in subtropics is not recommended...pls anyone?
Spinach (also English spinach) 12 Nov, Chris (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
It goes to seed (bolts) very quickly in hot weather so it won't get very large before it becomes unusable.
Spinach (also English spinach) 11 Nov, Charlotte (New Zealand - sub-tropical climate)
My understanding is that the warmer weather can cause it to bolt and go to seed extremely quickly. It likes sun but needs less heat to give the full benefits and yeild. Nz spinach does better during the summer months and is a good alternative option.
