Blueberry bushes

Posted: 07/02/2013 at 11:21

 I got a pair of Blueberry bushes for my birthday end of last month (from Gluttenous Gardener) and they are currently dormant and in little Terrocotta Pots.

 I'm currently debating whether to repot them both into large pots, or to plant them into the ground? I can see a clear advantage in using large pots, as I can bring them near the house in the colder months, as well as experiment with locations for them, but wanted to hear all your thoughts on the matter.

Hmmm, sounds a bit like our Oregon Grape bush (which I think is a Japonica).

Tasty and unusual fruit

That is an awesome name! Might have to keep an eye out for some seeds for that one next year.

One of the chilli varieties I am growing this year is an "Uba Tuba" chilli, which looks like this...

 "The flesh of each pod is thin athough crisp to taste and they mature from green to red approximately 90-100 days after seedlings have emerged. The body of the pods have some detectable heat, but the wings are sweet and mild." - http://www.thechileman.org/results.php?find=Ubatuba&heat=Any&origin=Any&genus=Any&chile=1&submit=Search

What doe Hybrid F1 mean on a seed packet

Posted: 24/01/2013 at 13:41

F1 Hybrids can be good for beginners growing Tomato or Chilli seeds. The only down-side is not being able to re-use the seeds the fruit produces.

Will have to check out those video's on You Tube. If you have Virgin Media with a Tivvo box, you could bring the YouTube vid's up through that

The leaves do look like it could be a Japonica Quince.. I'll try take some more piccies today or tomorrow of the branches. Don't think there are any thorns or anything on them though (if that helps!).

That's one of the things that suprised me, was that it was so healthy looking when we unvailed it from the many tree's and bushes around it!

Keep the suggestions coming and I'll Google image the answers to try and shed some light on what it is!

What veggies are you planning on growing 2013?

Posted: 22/01/2013 at 20:20

I'm going to concentrate on trying to grow 7 different varieties of Chilli ! Just waiting for this cold front to pass before sowing the seeds in my lovely new heated propogator!
