Any interest in these....they are the long white ones about 8 to 10 inches long and about 3 inches thick. I've grown them from seed now for 25 years with no chemical. I've probably got about 40 of the things....FREE. Expression of interest and I'll post my email address here. First up best dressed.
Will they grow in Nelson as I would love some and I will be moving there in October. I garden organically so yes please, I would be really grateful
G'day there Jaywahine,
Yeah they'll grow there....they tell me anything will grow down there. including good wine grapes. I originally got them off my father more years ago that I care to remember, he lived in Levin. Here's my email address....email@example.com send me your address and I'll get them away pronto. I've got a hell of a good recipe for cucumber pickle, dead easy to make too (wife loves me) spot on as a dip for cracker biscuits as well as cold meat, and the kids swoop on it like vultures. let me know if you want some tomatoe (big and plenty of them, pommy tomatoe) seeds, again never seen any chemical and I've had them also for years, and I'll chuck those in too.
Don't know if this is an old wives tale or not, but over the years that I've grown tomatoes I've always threaded a FINE piece of COPPER WIRE through the base of the stem when they are a very young plant and I've never had any problems with them.
Many many thanks
