hello, coming from work and read not all posts-quick answer from my small experiences:

stinging nettle together with fruit trees and bushs against aphids

basil (Basilicum) together with cucumber, cabbage and tomatoes against mildew and white fly

southern wormwood (artemisia abrotanum), rosmary together with cabbage and carot against cabbage butterfly

lavender together with roses against ants

tagetes together with tomatoes, cabbage, botatoes and strawberries against nematodes

horse radish together with cherry and peach against leaf curl. Greetings, ThaiGer


What's special about gardening In your county?

Posted: 03/02/2013 at 08:45

...maybe, but I have not say that no problemes on our land. Our biggest problem are clean air and water! What can we do? Close our farm exist two plantations: 1 for rubber tree and another for rice. The owner on this large land plots spray every seasons 1000s of liter chemy on plants and soil. We need both: clean soil and air. Our deagon fruits blooming only 1(!) night/season...and we need the nignt-insects for propagation, and the most of insects not flying in the night time. We are happy, that all of the other neigbours used only organic methods. Many time for convincing the neighbours to organic we spend in the last time...

planting a raised flower bed

Hello, HERE you can have a look for raised beds. We have no flower beds, but some very old raised herb/vegies beds. I must no have it; they stay since 15 years and so we used it for some herbs, it's better for the back of old papa/mama. Look THIS. Greetings, ThaiGer.

Hello, We have more than 35-40 degrees Celsius (10% humidity) on the day and at night less than 20 degrees Celsius (80% humidity).

We live at the end of a very large mountain valley that blow a cool night-wind from southern China via Laos to us. Our farm is located about 900 metres above sea level, left and right go up almost 1400 meters high on the mountains. On the day the soil dries (loamy, ferrous) quickly out. But we have no major problems with the cultivation of our plants; plenty of water and compost are necessary. The mix of equatorial-wet and desert-dry climate is our special. Greetings, ThaiGer
