i live in Darwin, i'm looking for a produce making plant that i can plant in full sun straight into the ground. Darwin sun is harsh and easil >8hrs per day of sunshine in dry season. i'm finding it impossible to get pigeon peas and the nurseries here are rubbish for edible stuffs. anything i can just get from woolies/coles and propagate/grow? sorry if the question is really particular, but i'd hate to just have a garden growing stuff to just stare at and i'm lucky enough to have a great garden. thanks heaps in advance

Vishal Darwin "Summer" is the Dry season. Plant once the Knock-em-downs are finished the make the best use of moist soil before the furnace switches on! Only plant tropical plants (Paw-paw etc) at the start of the Wet

Look on the internet for pigeon pea seeds or any other seeds you want. In Darwin you probably have a limited time to grow things - too hot, wet and windy. Set this web page to Tropical climate zone and go through the different vegies you might like to grow. See when is the best time to plant them - probably in the autumn. Do a lot of research and reading.
