  • Alas the only area I can grow anything falls into full shade almost half the year… :(

    • Remove tree.

      Apply fruit tree.

      • Not sure if Council allows.

    plant seed in soil, water it regularly, then eat - don't over think it
    let kids plant strawberries, lettuce
    let the rest of us plant whatever we want :-)

    • Have you ever tried that?

        Taught kids in a primary school to plant veggie gardens. That's basically what they did.

    • I ripped out some grass in the backyard of a flat I was renting, added nothing, and grew the best tasting beans and zucchini. Then I bought compost, fertilizer, and got some styrofoam boxes to grow lettuce… and it immediately grew tall stalks (went to seed) and tasted disgusting with a thick milky sap inside.

      • This is correct, so the fertiliser caused the lettuce to flower and seed.

        Why would you harvest and eat a vegetable such as lettuce after it has seeded? It will not taste very good at all like you experienced. This is what you would expect.

        • Um… "and it immediately grew tall stalks"… i.e. There was no time for any lettuce to grow. And everywhere I read said to water and fertilise regularly after planting.

          So my post was in reply to sian72 who said: "plant seed in soil, water it regularly, then eat - don't over think it"… Not overthink it is right… I put all that effort in and got stalks and sour sap. I put no effort in (after ripping out the grass) and got huge delicious zucchini and beans for weeks.

          • @Faulty P xel: Zucchini and beans are different to leafy greens.

            There are many different fertilizers available, you probably used a bloom type rather than a grow nutrient.

    Looks like the sort of stuff that you can get for free on Youtube, but with a requirement to sign up to a mailing list.

      it has a community of green thumbs to ask and share info

      • Fair enough. Maybe it is worth it for some people.

        just what I need, I have a dreadful looking peace lily I'd like to find out if I can resuscitate

        • Repot it with quality potting mix unless it doesn't need it, trim dead leaves, stop overwatering (just a little bit once a fortnight) and keep it out of direct sunlight in a shady nook. Should look after itself!

  • I want to know which soil checker is actually useful and correct. I'd like to check my various raised bed for whatever it's lacking and add it ahead of planting- vs. ending up with blossom-end-rot.

      Your plants will tell you what they are lacking by their leaves, then you can lookup and learn from your plants, and add lacking nutrient etc.

    Id rather they teach us indoor farming tech, something along the line of space buckets
