    Campervan conversion ideas?

    Hey Yeti, If you are considering buying a van to convert, don't skimp on height -- it will be sooo important for your day-to-day activities, storage, and plays a big part in not feeling claustrophobic once you've settled in. Some tall(ish) vans good for conversion: Mercedes Sprinter Ford Transit Toyota Hiace Although, if you're willing/able, I guess you could always extend the height yourself.
  5. Hi @MOTASH, you're looking for the 'Wanted' section of Seed & Plant Exchange. Unfortunately, I don't have seeds for you, but I'm sure someone would be happy to share the love.

    That's a pretty sad state of affairs -- I thought they would be allies in conservation.

    What did you do in your sacred garden today?

    @FerdieJ, sounds like we have similar goals. I've got a few hugels planned -- also heard daikons and radishes can be good for penetrating heavy soils and introducing organics deeper into the earth. Vetiver grass seems like it also has some uses for our soil-rejuvenation and preservation goals (as well as a great plant for carbon sequestering). For now, we have a lot of weeds covering most of the property and all through the existing orchard -- so we've got some ground cover and free compost while I do my planning! :p
  10. I've had success with neem oil, used once the sun is soft and setting, to avoid adverse affects from the increased photo-toxicity. It works by suffocating scale and other pests such as aphids. I find it best used in a regimen as a prophylactic rather than a treatment (once original infestation is stamped out). I have seen some people report adverse affects on their cacti from various horticultural oils, though applying around sunset has been working well for me.

    What did you do in your sacred garden today?

    Recently potted up and labelled all of the hybrid seedlings I received from a friend, repotted my tallest PC into a 50L pot. Really need to get it in the ground once I get my hard clay soil transforming into something more living! Spent some time at my new property planning out our food forest and thinking how I'm going to rejuvinate the clay soil into something better (over a long period of time). Got more info on this soil tek? :p I've not heard of people using a mixer to fluff it up. Guessing it helps with aeration?

    Acacia acuminata seed giveaway 2019/2020

    Very keen, I have a small wattle seedling that I'm currently nurturing. Excited to get some seeds to plant on my new property -- a lot of border fencing to screen with beautiful wattle and other natives!
