Sweet corn (also corn,maize) 19 May, Mike (USA - Zone 9a climate)
How much 33-0-0 Nitrate should I use on my sweet corn per 100 ft of row? My rows are pretty big, so I would say the corn is at least 2 feet apart from row to row. That said should I plant at the bottom of the rows, or closer to the plants? Thanks.
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) 19 May, Adele Palmer (South Africa - Dry summer sub-tropical climate)
I live in Gordonsbay,Western Cape. Can I plant my seeds in trays now and transplant into the garden after winter into bigger pots
Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) 18 May, Janet Ann Shpak (Canada - Zone 4b Temperate Warm Summer climate)
Soil Temps have to be pretty high for okra. Is it better to wait until late June to plant in zone 4b?
Choko/Chayote (also Chayote squash, christophene, chouchou, mirliton) 17 May, Brian (Australia - temperate climate)
Thank you Chris, the feedback I received has given me advice different to what I have been doing with Chokos. I will have to follow up when I know of availability of fruit so that I can purchase them and try again.
Burdock (also Gobo (Japanese Burdock)) 17 May, Winter (USA - Zone 6b climate)
Why do people plant Burdock? In my area, it grows everywhere and overtakes everything. It’s also impossible to pull w/ the hands, I have to dig them out to remove them. Genuine question, as there’s obviously a use for them if there’s a guide to growing them!
Burdock (also Gobo (Japanese Burdock)) 18 May, anonymous (USA - Zone 5a climate)
Read the notes about it - it explains it.
Beetroot (also Beets) 16 May, Hazel (Australia - temperate climate)
I’ve just replanted some baby beetroot seeds after bush turkeys dug out my others…..then noticed that beets are no longer in the ‘to plant’ list! Do they stand any chance of survival? They are in a raised plastic planter…
Beetroot (also Beets) 17 May, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
They should grow, hill up the soil around the base a bit.
Rosemary 15 May, Geri (Canada - Zone 3b Temperate Warm Summer climate)
Can I safely transplant rosemary out now.
Choko/Chayote (also Chayote squash, christophene, chouchou, mirliton) 15 May, Brian Wood (Australia - temperate climate)
Wanting to get Choko fruit for planting in Broken Hill. Not certain when or where to purchase can you help? Would like to talk to NAFISA whose Dec.11 comments could be interesting as it looks as if they also reside in BROKEN HILL.

Strawberry Plants 14 May, Beverley Nelson (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Do strawberries grown in strawberry planters really work, or is ground growing the best method? Do the 2 methods need different treatment? TIA

What fertilizer is good for daikon Kohlrabi That are growing in greensmart self watering pots
Daikon (also Japanese radish, Lo Bok) 10 May, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Just a general fertiliser not too high in Nitrogen. High N will produce a lot of leaf. A fert will plenty of P.
Carrot 08 May, Pete (Australia - temperate climate)
My carrots are at about the half way mark. The colour of the carrots is light orange, What can I do to give them a deeper redish colour, or will it come naturally? Cheers Pete
Carrot 09 May, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Q. What causes my carrots to be pale yellow instead of the typical orange color? A. Although there are varietal differences in root color, this problem could be caused by environmental conditions. Carrots maturing under warm temperatures or high moisture conditions lack good root color. These carrots also have poor flavor and texture. Plant carrots so they mature under relatively cool temperatures that average less than 80 degrees F. Avoid excessive soil moisture. From https://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/archives/parsons/vegetables/carrot.html - 6th question down.
Eggplant (also Aubergine) 07 May, Mary (Australia - temperate climate)
First time I’ve planted Egg Plant. (Wicking bed) Enjoying the few fruits now. Do I pull the plant up or is it perennial? I’m guessing the cold winter will knock it. I would like to use the spot for winter veg unless it will grow through till next season.
Eggplant (also Aubergine) 09 May, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
It will produce again next year - maybe not so good as this year. Or plant some new ones next spring and put in some veggies for winter.
Rhubarb 05 May, Amathonn (USA - Zone 9a climate)
My Month by Month Florida Gardening book says you can grow rhubarb year-round in north Florida and August to October in central and south Florida. I’m guessing shade cloth would be in order for the latter two the rest of the year. I never cared much for it growing up in Iowa but I think I’ll give it a try at my little hobby farm near Arcadia, Fl just for the challenge of it.
Rhubarb 06 May, Anonymous (Australia - tropical climate)
The plants probably need more regular watering than shade cloth. Heavy shade cloth will reduce the available sunlight. By this guide not a lot of opportunity to grow it in zones 6a or 6b. I have absolutely no idea what your weather is like - I live in Australia.
Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) 05 May, Mati (Australia - temperate climate)
Hello. I need a few information regarding something I have no knowledge. I've been asked to write a report on Cape Gooseberries (golden berries) and regular Gooseberry plant, how they differ from each other, and whether or not they're compatible with each other; as in if these two plants can be grown side by side. Now as I have zero idea on gardening, I'm having to fully rely on the internet. I've found most of what I need to know. Except for if these two plants can be grown in close proximity in a garden. Can someone kindly provide me with a detailed answer to this?
