    Meet up: Ipswich

    So I can do next Saturday 21 Jan, but that might be too short notice for most, or any weekend after the following weekend (i.e. not the weekend of the 28th)... 21 Jan or 4 Feb?

    Meet up: Ipswich

    I don't do facey man, let me know about the walk and I'll see. I've got a month off starting in a week or so, so was thinking that I might even have the usual suspects at my place some time? Prolly not keen on having those I've not met before though.

    Growing HBWR

    Thanks everyone, that's good to know. I knew they would have pest potential; didn't know 30 metres, I thought I'd read 30 feet! Currently growing it up part of the house and am draping over / framing the windows with it, might need to rethink that!

    Growing HBWR

    Hi. So I've been growing 2 x HBWR vines for about 12 months. They've been growing like stink. Big healthy leaves, vines must be 6 or 8 metres long. In the last couple of weeks, just as its warming up and me thinking flowers might come with Spring, the leaves have started to yellow and die back. I initially wondered if it was lack of water since I haven't had to water for so long due the amount of rain and soil moisture, wondered if the soil had finally dried enough to require a drink, but nope, don't think that's it. There are still many healthy leaves, but perhaps only half as many as there should be. Those leaves that are yellowing are doing so fairly uniformly throughout the whole leaf, starting with the "flesh" of the leaf and leaving green veins, leading to the veins then also yellowing and the leaf (and stem supplying it) eventually withering and dying. The main stems appear fine. This isn't part of the plant's cycle is it? Photos would be helpful to you I guess, but I'm lazy right now, maybe later if my description above isn't helpful enough. Located a little west of Bris. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Psychoactive Saffron (Crocus sativus)

    I'm keen to just try some, not heard of saffron being of interest before this, but also keen on brewing some. I am currently experimenting with my mead (technically melomel) by adding damiana to my second ferment. Will know at xmas time how that goes... Seems like saffron could be something to try as well.
