Im not a very good ‘grower’ but my whanau do try to plant whenever we can. Normally lettuce and capsicum. But we have ventured into Spinach, spring onions, a variety of Silverbeet and a mixture of herbs. The big problem I have is that they all grow at once and need to be eaten almost all at once.
how should we plant so that they veges are constantly available?

I am starting to think of christmas presents and always get stuck on what to get my dad. Anything he wants, he buys for himself. He LOVES gardening, so i thought getting him a plant could be cool.
He has heaps of ferns and palms, so i was wondering what you could suggest? Something that doesn’t grow into a ‘tree’.
Any help would be much appreciated!

I’m a home brewer living in Wellington and would like to purchase some rhizomes or potted hops plants to grow my own hops over summer.
Waimea Nurseries (based in Nelson) supply various hops rhizomes and I understand you are one of their customers. Can you please tell me if you have any hops plants/rhizomes in stock or whether you would be able to order some in?
Thanks and regards

Could you please advise me the name of a suitable fern which is able to grow up to a metre or two high and a metre wide, and which is to go in a shady place. I want to be able to look down on it and see its rosette shape, but I do not want a tall tree fern.
I would also like it to be of a good size to plant rather than wait a long time for it to reach the desired height.
If you have such a specimen, please tell me its size and cost.
Thank you very much! I hope to hear from you soon!

We have just bought a property with a neglected garden on the Kapiti Coast and it is absolutely riddled with Oxalis, at least I think it’s Oxalis (looks like clover leaves with little yellow flowers?) Is there an answer to getting rid of this nasty weed, or do we have to remove it manually and try to find all its little bulbs in the process? Oh please tell me there’s an easier way – we have about a third acre and it’s everywhere.
