Garden weddings inner city melbourne

You’d find information on this here in my mother outlaw’s, and my mother’s, dreams. They’d also probably be happy if we had an indoor outer-suburban hitching. My suggestion is get a good celebrant, and make sure you’ve got an indoor type place in case it’s hot or cold. Outdoor weddings always seem like a good idea until you get sunstroke or the bridesmaid turns blue for all the photos (you can see my Personal Ecologist shivering with hunched shoulders in the photos of her most recent bridesmaid stint).

Planting snow peas in Australia

I’ve got one survivor of the Great Slug Fest of 2008. It’s currently producing delicious snow peas, and I’ve got a photo of it in the banner up there. If you’re in Melbourne it might be a bit late to plant them now.

Make a planter box out of a wine barrel

Find half a wine barrel, drill some drainage holes if it doesn’t already have them, and stick about 5 bags of potting mix in.

WordPress actually, but you got here anyway, well done!

Daikon pull out time

Mine are pretty much jumping out of the ground. Pull ‘em when you’re ready to eat them. They go soft pretty quickly.

Snow peas not flowering

Compost is generally the answer to all gardening problems. If it’s not the answer to this one then I don’t know. Maybe watering? Or sunlight?

How to plant a lemon tree in a half wine barrel

See above, then pull the potting mix aside and stick in a lemon tree. Make sure it’s in a spot you’re happy to keep it permanently though, it will be very heavy. Water it in well and send young boys out to ‘water’ it some more.

Planting potatoes in wine barrels

Probably would work, but I’d go for a cage type planter, which you could make taller than a wine barrel. Then when the spuds are ready you pull the cage apart and find all the spuds. The taller the container or cage, the bigger your potatoes can grow. Wine barrels are also expensive unless you happen to know someone who just wants to get rid of them.

Growing snow peas in Melbourne

Yes. But you might need to wait til next year. If you’re in a cold area it might be worth trying a few seeds out and seeing how they do. You never know your luck etc.
