Gardenate, an Australian website provides great information on what to plant when by zone and offers in-depth information on each plant including how to plant, companion plantings, what plants to keep apart, harvest times, and culinary hints. The comments and questions are fun to look at; e.g. someone in US zone 10 asks “How do you plant 10,000 cabbage seeds?” No one has answered yet. Over the years I’ve wondered why I can rarely get ginger to sprout. Reading Gardenate comments I learned that most ginger purchased at the supermarket has been steamed to prolong shelf life, so it won’t sprout. Who knew?


Garden Quote

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. Nathaniel Hawthorne
