I grew some water chestnuts last season in a pot sat at the edge of the dam, got a good yield but the water level fluctuations was a bit of a pain so i am trying this this season with hopes they will float when the water level rises.

I put some shade cloth in the bottom of the pots so the soil won't come out.

P.S i hope it bloody rains soon, it's been so very depressingly dry

Repotted 8 narrow acuminata, they were starting to wake up a bit so I gave them some more room to stretch their legs :)

@TheMooseZeusThey live in the greenhouse at the moment. They were starting to put new growth on so i though now is as good as any other time. They were only in a cell/seedraising tray so they needed the room :)

Just treated all my acacias with a rhizobia inoculant. 

Not sure which type of inoculant it was, but the guy I got it has had explosive growth in his acacias. 

Can only hope for the same :lol:

Everything is loving life :)

After years of growing and topping chilli plants, decided I'd give it a whirl on some Datura seedlings. Always had bigger yields, around 2x more pods over the course of a season. 3 topped, 3 not. Updates soon

 

20181104_075320.thumb.jpg.9731a6ceab5a271c4f8d7478227f13f2.jpg20181104_075757.thumb.jpg.83e51e7713a29a76fcf776b60d5edd1b.jpg

Put this frosty pink in the ground. Threw some slow release fert in the hole and gave it a good watering. Going to lay down some weed mat too

Cut these Scop x Super Pedro pups off.

 

I've made 195 tip cuts of pereskiopsis in the last 2 weeks. Season goal is 700 pieces. Not usable size, just tips with roots to grow for the season after.

Pricked out some obtusifolia sprouts. Got some more Gastrolobium spp sprouting now too :)

 

Cut 12 more bits of pach for grafting stock.

Sowed some Diplopterys cabrerana, some Tetrapterys methystica, some Alicia's: macrodisca and anisopetala, some Banisteriopsis muricata and some Virola surinamensis ... dug them back up and then soaked them in 40mg GA3:900ml O2 (first time using for me) to be sowed later
