Yacon (also Sunroot) 03 Dec, T & K Gauthier (USA - Zone 5a climate)
After pulling the yacon plant (we only have one), how do we store the rhizomes until spring planting time? We have a high tunnel, but I don't think it would be happy there over winter.
Shallots (also Eschalots) 02 Dec, Edward (Australia - temperate climate)

If you are temperate zone climate - from early Autumn to mid Spring they will germinate.
Beans - dwarf (also French beans, Bush beans) 02 Dec, Mat B (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Hello, My dwarf beans are flowering and healthy, however they've mostly fallen over... how should I keep these growing up? Thanks.
Beans - dwarf (also French beans, Bush beans) 03 Dec, Anonymous (New Zealand - temperate climate)
When growing dwarf beans it is best to hill the soil up around the stem when they are half grown, this helps support the stems/plants. Have someone help you to hold the plant steady while you hill the soil up around them now. Do it asap.

Horseradish 29 Nov, Boris Maylis (Australia - temperate climate)
Hi. Can I grow horseradish in box 75x50 sm deep 35 sm from wood? What’s soil I need to use.? How to grow only root without leaves? Thank you. Boris
Horseradish 30 Nov, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Don't use a high Nitrogen fertiliser if you don't want a lot of leaves.
Horseradish 29 Nov, Liz (Australia - temperate climate)
You just need ordinary soil. Keep it watered, a wooden box will dry out quickly. You cannot grow horseradish without leaves.
Choko/Chayote (also Chayote squash, christophene, chouchou, mirliton) 26 Nov, Luna (Australia - tropical climate)
My choco leaves get burn dueing summer and the fruits become unhealthy . It also upset me because of some yellow beetles around which i always squeezed by hand.
Choko/Chayote (also Chayote squash, christophene, chouchou, mirliton) 26 Nov, Anonymous (Australia - tropical climate)
By the guide here it is grown during the autumn and winter in the tropics. If you are growing during the summer then you probably need to water it every day. The yellow/orange beetles if they have little black dots on them could be lady beetles. They are good in the garden.

Tomato 24 Nov, Max (USA - Zone 10b climate)
My tomato plants in zone 10b (Los Angeles, CA) still continue to develop new flowers and grow a lot of new fruit. It seems like it is recommended to remove the plants at the end of the growing season... but how do I know when that is?
Tomato 26 Nov, Anonymous (USA - Zone 9b climate)
It is probably an indeterminate variety (will keep growing), they can keep growing if you fertilise and water them. Determinate varieties only grow so high and most of the tomatoes ripen at the same time. Depending on what your seasons are like you could keep growing it. Or if you have produced a good crop and need the ground for another crop soon pull it out and ready the ground for the next crop or season.

Pumpkin 23 Nov, Linda (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Hello, I threw pumpkin seeds onto a mound of organic soil. The vine is strong and healthy however the fruit forms but then dies off. I have given it some veggie fertilizer and worm juice. I thought that pollination wouldn't be an issue if the fruit is forming. We live on the Gold Coast and the pumpkin patch gets the morning sun actually its in the sun for most of the day.
Pumpkin 24 Nov, Ruth (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Your flowers are possibly not pollinated and will nnot mature. Pick a male flower, strip back the petals and tickle the female flowers with it and you should get mature fruit
