Yes, winter veggies should be now replaced with spring/summer varieties. The weather will not do them justice.

Thompson seedless/sultana will grow well enough in Melbourne area, but will not have the higher sugar content they get when grown in hotter areas of Victoria, such as Mildura. Thanks

There are usually 3 reasons which can cause brocolli to yellow. 1) Been in the garden too long and are aging. 2) Attacked with fungal disease, usually fusarium wilt. 3) Nutrient deficiency. My bet is that it's just a nutrient deficiency, namely nitrogen deficiency and a dose of nitrogen will fix the problem. Try one of these products: AQUASOL, SEASOL, MIRACLE GRO, or THRIVE. use one with the highest nitrogen content. All are fast acting, liquid fertilizers and you should notice firm results in about 2-3 weeks.

Nice planting combination. You should use water/fish emulsion every 14 to 21 days. This is sufficient.

Hi,
It's kind of late for most veggies, but you can go for onions, lettuce, spinach, silver beet, potatoes and beetroot, rhubarb and asparagus, garlic and similar root veggies. As for flowers, pansies, polyanthus, primulas and gypsy begonias are still fine to go in. With bulbs, tulips, hyacinths still have a chance, but it may be just a tad too late for daffodils, freesias and jonquils.

Thans for your inquiry and hope this helps.

Hello Rebecca,
You can use seeds from your favourite pumpkins and these will grow true to form. There are just a couple of things you should understand. Firstly, the selected pumpkin should be fully ripened or at least as ripe as possible. This will ensure the seeds are mature enough. Secondly, choose the healthiest, plumpest seeds that you can, and yes, allow these to dry out at least for a few days. In any case, you won't be planting them until early spring, (this is the time the go in), and if you collect them now they will be just fine by then.
Good Luck!

10 years ago @ The Plant Whiz - How To Grow A Lemon Tree · 0 replies · +1 points

Hello Ammar, In general lemon trees do struggle to grow in colder climates, but if your weather patterns through spring, summer and autumn (fall), are warm enough, then I do not see a reason why it can't grow outdoors. It may have trouble growing in winter, even seem to decline, but it should pick up growth once the days lengthen and warm up. But, being a dwarf tree, you have the option of container growing your lemon. This gives you the benefit of mobility, whereby you can move the tree to the warmest part of the garden or even indoors on colder days. However, try not to keep it indoors for lengthy periods of time as without direct sunlight the leaves will yellow and drop.
Hope this helps.
