Hi from Ascot Vale :) Small courtyard at the moment but will soon be in Melton with ~80 sqm of yard
Dani
12:43
Renting in Middle Park, so lots and lots of pot plants in a small courtyard
BarbaraW
21:58
In the survey, I called my garden 'Small Garden'. Am actually in a unit so have a courtyard, indoors, and have taken over some of the common property in my frontage, so to me it equals a small garden
Bec - City of Stonnington
22:32
That sounds great Barbara, I'm sure you'll get plenty of inspo from Kat :)
BarbaraW
24:03
Thanks Bec, always do as she is a great presenter - probably seen similar presentations but love to check in for refreshers

Facing which direction fruiting hedge?

Which fruit or vegetable plant can be grown in this season?
Amy Sweet
29:08
I had a space like this, some fake grass offcuts that you can get for free on marketplace or from hard waste make a massive difference over the concrete - the green is so uplifting!
Gail T
32:43
So the rental unit in Brunswick was under eaves?
monicaha

Any toxicity issue if planting in polystyrene box? Especially during summer?
Helen Longhurst
36:13
I have found some woven fabric pots on ebay which I am trying out. So far they have good drainage are light weight and portable as they have two strong handles on the side for easy carrying.
Louise
40:52
What about the grow bags that have been advertised commercially?
Helen Longhurst
42:20
Louise the fabric pots are grow bags. You can find ones especially for potatoes with side pouches for harvesting.
Aimee Zhang
43:08
How do you deal with snails? Thanks.
Kishore J
45:15
Fo acidic soil, can we add eucalyptus leaves to compost?
Bec - City of Stonnington
46:09
Hi Aimee, Kat won't be going into pests tonight but we have a lot of great resources on the My Smart Garden website including recordings of pest focused webinars! https://mysmartgarden.org.au/
Helen
47:29
I think you mentioned pine needles but I missed what you did with them. I have cypress pine trees.
Niki Mickleham
47:59
All fruits need good sun or not?
s
49:03
where can we buy Babaco plants from please?
J
49:14
If starting out what size pot to begin with for a fruiting tree?
Dani
58:00
I am interested in growing sweet potatoes in a pot. Are you able to train the plant leaves to grow upwards so it doesn't take up too much room?
Helen
58:57
Do you have any suggested resources to help with working out house/garden orientation and shade/sun throughout the seasons? Or is it best done by observation. Also was interested in growing grapes in pots and hoping to know the pot size you would recommend for sultana grapes.
Dani
59:19
Can you eat red mustard leaves raw too?
Stami
01:00:46
How long does it take for Chilean Guava take to fruit? Ive had mine about 2 years and so far nothing
BarbaraW
01:02:03
Have just bought a Rhubarb 'Ruby Red Dwarf' - what size pot would you suggest?
Stami
01:02:10
thank you
BarbaraW
01:07:10
Have just had my first successful crop of carrots - like you say, cheap as but my grand-daughters love the surprise of size when they pull the carrot up
Dani
01:13:32
Made some Gyoza last night and added garlic chives grown in the garden to the mix. Really delicious
BarbaraW
01:13:37
Have heard Alyssum is good under fruit trees - would you advise if you think that includes citrus?
Joanne’s iPhone
01:13:56
I grow alyssum and it resseeds itself. I didn’t know it was edible though. Thank you
BarbaraW
01:14:56
Same here, didn't know it was edible and also thanks for advice that it will reseed.

Hi Kate, what do you do deal with the excess supply of say any vegetable
emman
01:33:57
There are facebook pages for garden swaps. I'm part of the Wyndham Community Garden Swap. Their next event is 5th Dec in Hoppers Crossing
Kate
01:41:01
our home worm farm makes nice dark rich compost but occasionally it has little bugs in it - I am unsure how to get rid of these if they are pests.

My internet went funny, so you might've answered. I wanted to grow some sweet potatoes in pots. Can the leaves be grown upwards rather than trailing?

Kat Lavers
01:47:28
Awesome Sarah! I recommend the ‘Sunshine Blue’ variety (evergreen, compact, very productive, more tolerant of soil pH)
Rebecca C
01:48:55
Kat where did you learn all this information from?

I saw kale flowers in the bowl of the 11th floor garden- I had no idea - they’re edible?
Kate
01:50:35
can worm compost with small bugs in it be used?
BarbaraW

A sprinkle of ash can help get rid of those little flies in a worm farm
