Ash gourd, also known as Benincasa hispida, winter melon, wax gourd, white pumpkin, and Chinese watermelon, is a fruit native to parts of Southern Asia.

It grows on a vine and matures into a round or oblong melon, approximately the same size and color as a watermelon. Once ripe, the fruit’s fuzzy exterior transforms into a powdery ash-colored coating, giving the fruit its name.

Ash gourd has a mild taste reminiscent of cucumber, and its flesh is a popular ingredient in Chinese and Indian dishes.

The fruit is believed to offer various health benefits and has been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries.

  • Seed Preparation:
    • Soak the ash gourd seeds in room temperature water for 24 hours to soften the seed coat and enhance germination.
  • Sowing Seeds:
    • Fill seed trays or pots with a mix of potting soil and compost.
    • Plant the seeds about 2.5 cm deep in the soil.
    • Cover the seeds lightly with soil and gently water them using a spray bottle to avoid disturbing the seeds.
  • Germination:
    • Place the seed trays or pots in a warm, sunny location. Ash gourd seeds need a temperature of around 25-30°C for germination.
    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
    • Seeds should germinate within 7-14 days.
  • Transplanting Seedlings:
    • Once the seedlings have 2-3 true leaves and the weather is warm (preferably above 20°C), they can be transplanted to the garden or larger containers.
    • Choose a sunny spot with well-draining soil enriched with compost or organic matter.
    • Space the seedlings about 90-120 cm apart to give them plenty of room to grow.
  • Care and Maintenance:
    • Water the plants regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but avoid overwatering.
    • Mulch around the plants to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
    • Provide support for the vines to climb, such as a trellis or fence, as ash gourd plants can grow vigorously.
    • Fertilize the plants every 2-3 weeks with a balanced organic fertilizer to promote healthy growth.
  • Pest and Disease Management:
    • Keep an eye out for common pests like aphids, beetles, and caterpillars. Use organic insecticides or neem oil if needed.
    • Ensure good air circulation around the plants to prevent fungal diseases. Remove any infected leaves immediately.
  • Harvesting:
    • Ash gourds are usually ready for harvest 3-4 months after planting, when the fruits are large and the skin has developed a powdery coating.
    • Cut the fruit from the vine using a sharp knife, leaving a small portion of the stem attached.

FROM The National Library of Medicine : An Overview on Ashwagandha: A Rasayana (Rejuvenator) of Ayurveda – PMC (nih.gov)

Ashwagandha, scientifically termed Withania somnifera and belonging to the Solanaceae family, goes by the monikers “Indian Winter cherry” or “Indian Ginseng.” Revered in Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine, for millennia, it serves as a potent Rasayana, offering a spectrum of health benefits.

Rasayana, as described, denotes herbal or metallic formulations that foster a youthful state of physical and mental well-being, amplifying joy. Administered as tonics to children and embraced by individuals across all age groups, including the elderly, Rasayana herbs like Ashwagandha hold paramount importance in Ayurvedic practice, particularly recognized as a “Sattvic Kapha Rasayana” herb. Notably, many Rasayana herbs exhibit adaptogenic qualities, serving as anti-stress agents.

Ashwagandha commonly manifests as churna—a finely sieved powder—easily blendable with water, ghee (clarified butter), or honey. Its benefits span various realms:

  • Enhancing brain and nervous system function while augmenting memory.
  • Supporting a healthy balance within the reproductive system, fostering vitality in sexual and reproductive aspects.
  • As a potent adaptogen, fortifying the body’s resilience against stressors.
  • Bolstering the body’s defense mechanisms by enhancing cell-mediated immunity.
  • Exhibiting robust antioxidant properties, shielding against cellular damage induced by free radicals.

In essence, Ashwagandha stands as a cornerstone in Ayurvedic tradition, celebrated for its multifaceted health-promoting attributes, making it a cherished remedy in the pursuit of holistic well-being.

Classical Uses of Ashwagandha

Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine dating back to 6000 BC according to Charak Samhita (1949), has long revered Ashwagandha as a Rasayana—a rejuvenating tonic—over the span of millennia. Renowned for its versatility, Ashwagandha’s root is esteemed for its manifold properties, including being tonic, aphrodisiac, narcotic, diuretic, anthelmintic, astringent, thermogenic, and stimulant. Its name, “Ashwagandha,” originates from its root’s horse-like odor (“ashwa”), believed to imbue the consumer with equine strength.

Traditionally, Ashwagandha finds application in various ailments such as emaciation in children (especially potent when consumed with milk), debility from old age, rheumatism, vata imbalances, leucoderma, constipation, insomnia, nervous breakdowns, and goiter. Moreover, its crushed root paste alleviates joint inflammation and is topically applied to carbuncles, ulcers, and painful swellings. Additionally, Ashwagandha, often in combination with other herbs, is administered for snake venom and scorpion stings, as well as addressing leucorrhoea, boils, pimples, colic, worms, and piles.

Nagori Ashwagandha is hailed as the supreme variety, with optimum benefits derived from fresh Ashwagandha powder. Its leaves possess bitterness and are recommended for fever and painful swellings, while its flowers offer astringent, depurative, diuretic, and aphrodisiac properties. The seeds, when combined with astringents and rock salt, serve as an anthelmintic, removing white spots from the cornea. Ashwagandharishta, a preparation derived from Ashwagandha, aids in hysteria, anxiety, memory loss, syncope, and acts as a stimulant while bolstering sperm count.

Scientific scrutiny corroborates Ashwagandha’s adaptogenic and anti-stress effects, likening it to Eleutherococcus senticosus (Siberian Ginseng) and Panax Ginseng (Chinese/Korean Ginseng), thus earning the epithet “Indian Ginseng.” Extensive animal studies have showcased its efficacy in enhancing stamina, thwarting stress-induced ailments like gastric ulcers and hepatotoxicity, and bolstering resistance to stressors. Clinical evidence underscores its potential in averting stress-related conditions like arteriosclerosis, premature aging, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, and malignancy.

As with any herbal remedy, consulting a healthcare professional is prudent before commencing any regimen. The information provided here serves as a reference and does not substitute professional medical advice. Always seek guidance from a qualified herbal practitioner or medical practitioner before initiating any treatment or altering prescribed regimens.

Growing Ashwagandha From Seeds 

  1. Sow Ashwagandha seeds indoors in early spring to early summer. The seeds need a soil temperature of at least 21C to germinate, and the plants can take up to 180 days to reach maturity. Starting them in pots is the best way to ensure a long growing season.
  2. Fill a seed propagation tray or several plastic pots with organic, well-draining, nutrient-rich soil.
  3. Place the seeds in the pots, cover them with a thin layer of soil, and water them well.
  4. Keep the seed pots in a warm place but not in full sun.
  5. Ashwagandha seeds can take between 10 and 14 days to germinate. Make sure the soil is kept evenly moist until the seedlings emerge. You can gradually reduce watering when you start seeing seedlings but never let the soil dry out completely.
  6. You can transplant the young Ashwagandha plants into the garden soil when they are at least 10cms tall.

DWARF PINK BANANA VELUTINA, EYE CATCHING AND BEAUTIFUL! DELICIOUS FRUITS AND ABLE TO BE GROWN OUTSIDE OR INSIDE! STUNNING PINK BANANAS COVERED IN A LIGHT DOWN HAVE PEOPLE SOMETIMES CALLING THEM PINK VELVET BANANAS! YES, THE COLOURS OF THE FLOWERS REALLY ARE THAT VIBRANT!

Dwarf pink bananas are highly ornamental as both landscape and indoor plants. They feature classically shaped banana leaves up to 90 centimetres long in a deep shade of green with bronze undersides. The flowers of dwarf pink bananas are show-stoppers, with pink to purplish flower bracts framing white to yellow flower clusters, all rising from the centre of the plant on stalks in late summer.

Although sometimes listed as being inedible, the fruit of the dwarf pink banana is, in fact, delicious but seedy. Fruits actually peel themselves when they ripen, making it impossible to mistake an unripe fruit for one that is ready to eat. Even if you aren’t interested in de-seeding the sweet fruit of this plant, the tiny unripe pink bananas will make impressive conversation pieces.

Compact Size

Unlike most bananas, dwarf pink bananas are small plants that rarely reach more than 2.4 metres tall, depending on growing conditions. These small bananas can easily be grown in containers on the patio, large pots indoors, or used to line walkways without fear of them overgrowing their beds. They will die back to the ground when exposed to frost, but reliably and quickly return in the spring.

Dwarf Pink Banana Culture

Although they will not tolerate drought, bananas tend to be forgiving about soil type and lighting. Even so, they do their best in rich, neutral, well-draining soil. Fertilise with a general-purpose fertiliser in the spring, before new growth begins. Water at least weekly until the tree is established, but don’t allow the plant’s soil to become soggy. Propagation is by digging of suckers, or planting seeds that have been soaked for 24 hours in water.

The basic things to remember if you are germinating banana seeds are:

1. Always soak seeds before sowing. We recommend 24-48 hours.

2. Use a well draining soil mix. A mix that holds water will rot the seeds in place.

3.Soil temperature must be at least 20 degrees or warmer for part of the day. But, seeds need alternating temperatures for germinating. We found that just putting a heating mat under the seeds and leaving temperature constant was not nearly as effective as heating the soil for a few hours a day, then allowing it to cool. So leaving them outside is a good idea as the weather in Australia will do that for you!

4. Keep soil damp, but not wet! Wet soil will rot seeds quickly. Placing the seed tray inside a plastic bag is a good way to keep moisture constant.

5. Be patient. Seeds can take several months to germinate, they will need time. So don’t throw out your potting mix or give up, the seeds will know the best time to germinate.

5 FRESH SEEDS, LARGE, ROUND WITH AN “EYE” AT THE TOP. SOAK IN ROOM TEMP WATER FOR 12 HOURS BEFORE SOWING.

How to plant:

SOAK FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE PLANTING IN ROOM TEMP. WATER. Plant in fertile soil with a good compost element. Plant about 2cm deep, cover and keep moist, plant in warmer months of the year or under a cloche (a clear covering) or on top of a heated mat.

Long trailing vines with dusty purple coloured berries are a feature of the delicious Boysenberry (Rubus ursinus x idaeus). Thought to be a hybrid between Thornless Blackberry, American Dewberry, Loganberry and Raspberry, the fruit is aromatic.

They are packed with health-promoting antioxidants and important nutrients, including fibre, folate, vitamin K and vitamin C.

Finding them fresh is difficult so grow your own!

Boysenberry nutrition is a good source of fibre and micronutrients, including manganese, folate, vitamin K and vitamin C. It contains powerful antioxidants, including flavonoids that help prevent oxidative damage to the body.

Boysenberry seeds can grow successful and prolifically fruiting plants. However as the Boysenberry is a hybrid between three varieties, not every seed will produce the exact same plant or fruit. Growing from seed is a way to get an interesting range of fruit flavours! Grow all your seeds and pick the most tasty one to propagate from!

One cup (about 132 grams) of frozen boysenberries contains approximately:

66 calories
16.1 grams carbohydrates
1.5 grams protein
0.3 grams fat
7 grams fiber
0.7 milligrams manganese (36 percent DV)
83.1 micrograms folate (21 percent DV)
10.3 micrograms vitamin K (13 percent DV)
4.1 milligrams vitamin C (7 percent DV)
1.1 milligrams vitamin E (6 percent DV)
1.1 milligrams iron (6 percent DV)
21.1 milligrams magnesium (5 percent DV)
0.1 milligrams thiamine (5 percent DV)
1 milligram niacin (5 percent DV)
183 milligrams potassium (5 percent DV)
0.1 milligrams copper (5 percent DV)
0.1 milligrams vitamin B6 (4 percent DV)
35.6 milligrams calcium (4 percent DV)
35.6 milligrams phosphorus (4 percent DV)
Benefits
The health benefits of boysenberry come from the fruit’s impressive nutrition content, which includes beneficial polyphenols and micronutrients.

1. Promotes Lung Health
A 2016 study conducted on mice published in the American Journal of Physiology evaluated the lung function benefits from increased consumption of fruits high in polyphenols. Researchers found that regular boysenberry consumption has the potential to moderate chronic lung fibrosis in asthma and other chronic pulmonary diseases.

A 2021 study published in Food Science and Nutrition found that drinking boysenberry and apple juice concentrate promoted a shift toward an anti-inflammatory environment within the lungs, and it reduced immune cell infiltration and tissue damage.

2. Supports Cardiovascular Health
A 2014 study found that polyphenol content in boysenberry juice decreased diastolic blood pressure after four weeks. The results also suggest that the nutrients found in the fruit improve endothelial function, which allows for the flow of substances and fluid in and out of tissue.

Another study suggests that the anthocyanins in boysenberry inhibit endothelial dysfunction and contribute to the maintenance of healthy artery homeostasis.

3. Provides Antioxidants
Boysenberry is rich in antioxidants, including flavonoids like anthocyanins. Anthocyanins have been shown in studies to prevent diseases associated with oxidative stress, including cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. The flavonoids also benefit gut health by promoting a healthy balance of bacteria.

A 2015 study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that boysenberry seed oil had the strongest oxygen radical absorbance capacity compared to red raspberry, blueberry and marionberry seed oils.

4. Good Source of Fibre
The dietary fibre found in berries like boysenberry have a positive impact on cardiovascular health, digestive health and more. High-fibre foods promote regularity and enhance digestive health, while helping to stabilize blood sugar levels and improve heart health by decreasing LDL cholesterol and promoting blood flow.

5. Provides Vitamin K
Vitamin K foods promote blood sugar control, strong bones and better brain function. A cup of boysenberries contains about 13 percent of your daily value of vitamin K, making it a good source of the important micronutrient.

Data shows that vitamin K deficiency is not uncommon, so getting enough of the nutrient in your daily foods is necessary.

The taste of boysenberry has been likened to that of blackberries but with an extra tang and sweetness. They are thin-skinned and juicy when ripe, a bit bigger than your standard blackberries.

The downside of these unique berries is that they only last a few days after picking, so it’s difficult for commercial growers to get them in grocery stores. For that reason, you’re more likely to see them frozen or canned, but you also have the option of growing your own at home.

The first year, only leaves are produced during the summer. The next season, the berries grow on the plant’s green stems.

Wait until the berries are a dark purple colour and easy to pull off the stem.

Once you have your hands on some boysenberries, it’s time to eat them raw or use them in recipes. Because the fresh berries only last a few days, you may choose to freeze them after harvest.

Simply wash them, lay them out on a baking sheet and put them in the freezer. Once they’re frozen, add them to an airtight bag or container.

Now you can use them in smoothies, a boysenberry pie or tart, or berry-based baked goods.

Any recipe that calls for blackberries or raspberries also works well with boysenberry.

Risks and Side Effects
Some people may experience mild allergic reactions after consuming boysenberry. If you have swelling; itching of the mouth, lips or hands; or stomach discomfort after eating these berries, discontinue use immediately.

People susceptible to kidney stones should minimize their consumption of berries and some other fruits because the oxalates may increase the production of stones.

Grow Notes
Grow in full or part sun. Canes will grow to 2m high and wide, and will spread over the years if not contained within a trellis with yearly pruning. Remove old dead canes in winter, leaving only vigorous healthy canes to produce the next crop.

Plants prefer a rich, well-draining soil, with a pH of 6.0-7.0.

Sow
To plant Boysenberries from seed, sow the seeds in a pot starting in mid-winter. Push the seeds about an inch deep and an inch apart into the soil. Cover with a thin layer of sand.

Store the pot in a dim and cool place indoors, such as a pantry or even a garage, and keep the seeds moist by spraying with a spray bottle as needed.

Once temperatures reach above 15°C, place your raspberry pot outdoors.

Once they’ve started to develop leaves and have grown about one inch in height, transplant them in a big pot or in the garden and cover the base around the plant with mulch, leaving the trunk bare to keep the soil nice and moist.

Germination
10-40 days

Maturity
Perennial with fruit on 2 year old canes.

SOLANUM MAMMOSUM IS AN ORNIMENTAL PLANT THAT IS ALSO CALLED THE NIPPLE FRUIT OR COW’S UDDER PLANT IS SIMPLY SPOOKTACULAR! USED TO POISON AND REPEL COCKROACHES IN TROPICAL AMERICA, IT HAS CRAZILY SHAPED FRUITS AND AN ATTRACTIVE LOOK. BRANCHES WITH THE BRIGHT FRUIT ATTACHED ARE OFTEN USED IN FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS.

Originating in the Caribbean and widespread across the West Indian islands, S. mammosum, commonly known as the Nipple Fruit, has become a popular ornamental plant across tropical America. Recognizable by its distinct protuberances, the fruits of Solanum Mammosum rank among the largest within the Solanum genus.

While some specimens feature spines, others do not. Documented extensively, its utilization as a cockroach poison has contributed to its proliferation among tribes throughout tropical America, as noted by Nee (1979).

Although sparsely found in Africa, particularly failing to naturalize in Ghana where the fruits are deemed poisonous (Bukenya & Hall, Bothalia 18: 83, 1988), Mansfeld (2001) highlights its potential as a source of solasodine for medicinal purposes and glycoalkaloids for schistosomiasis control.

Distribution:

  • Native to the West Indies, it is also cultivated in various regions including the US, India, Hong Kong, and Australia.
  • Its cultivation extends to Panama, Guyana, Surinam, French Guiana, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, and Peru.
  • Additionally, it is cultivated as an ornamental and found in Ghana, Burundi, Angola, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and South Africa.

The stems and fruits of this plant hold great appeal to florists for their unique appearance, making them a captivating addition to floral arrangements that can endure for weeks in a vase. They are often made into small animals using googly eyes and decorated in baskets and in built into huge decorative towers in their native lands.

 

Grow Notes
Place in a location that receives full sun. Give them a feed with Osmocote or Dynamic Lifter (Chicken manure pellets) twice a year and water regularly as they have a high-water requirement and will wilt easily, so don’t let them dry out totally.

Sow
Sow your seeds on a well-drained medium such as 75% sand and 25% Peat moss, or a potting mix with 50% coarse sand added to it. Just cover the seed with a sieved layer of sand or potting mix.

Keep them in a very bright, filtered light location and maintain consistent moisture levels, not sopping wet, just nice and moist.

When the seedlings reach 2-3 cm high, carefully transplant them to 5 cm pots using a well-draining potting medium. Add a pinch only of Osmocote or similar to each pot and water well. Keep your plants in very bright filtered light and do not let them dry out.

Germination
It may take up to a month for all the seed to germinate, don’t throw them out!

Maturity
Give your plant a good hard prune yearly to thicken it up, the more branches the more fruit so don’t be afraid to nip the tips of the branches off now and then.

Native to the Kalahari Desert, the Kiwano is also known as the Horned Melon, the melano, the African horned cucumber, the jelly melon, and the hedged gourd. When allowed to ripen, the fruit tastes like a mix of cucumbers, kiwis, and bananas!!!

When it is exported to the U.S., the horned cucumber is often labelled as “blowfish fruit.” With its spiky yellow exterior and juicy green interior, this is one fruit with vibrant contrasts. It is rich in both vitamin C and fibre.

Easy to grow and prefers the heat of summer!

Interesting in smoothies, jams or slather it in yoghurt and eat it with a spoon!!!

MEDIUM/LARGE SIZE, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.

Grow Notes
Plant in well drained, fertile soil in a sunny spot protected from strong winds.

Can be grown on the ground or as a climber on a trellis. A trellis or support structure will help with keeping water on the roots and not the leaves as they are susceptible to Powdery Mildew, so overhead watering should be avoided.

Sow
Sow direct or raise seedlings in Spring, after frosts have passed, or early Summer.

Sow at 10mm depth with 40cm plant spacing and 120cm row spacing.

Keep soil moist but never wet.

HEIRLOOM NATIONAL PICKLING GHERKINS! SUCCULENT SMALL CUCUMBERS THAT ARE PERFECT TO COOK LIKE ZUCCHINI, PICKLED OR EATEN FRESH ON SALADS! DOZENS ON EVERY VINE! LONG VINE LIFE!

These small and succulent cukes can be pickled, eaten raw, or cooked like zucchini. Try them in the Brazillian stir-fry recipe at the end! These are easy to grow and very prolific with dozens of gherkins on every vine. They can be left to scramble along the ground or grow them up a tee-pee or fence.

Growing gherkins is fun and makes an interesting garden addition for those who love pickles or wish to add interest to soups and stir-fries. They can also be eaten raw like cucumbers. Read about how easy they are to grow and harvest, and try out this recipe for a hot and spicy Brazillian stir-fry, called “Maxixada.”

Hot and Spicy Brazilian Maxixada Recipe
.
This dish is eaten over rice or a mixture of rice and beans. Traditionally, it’s cooked with dende oil (red palm oil), but I have substituted olive oil.
.
1/4 cup olive oil or mild-flavoured cooking oil
.
2 cups onion, chopped
.
1.2 KG young, tender gherkins
.
1 zucchini peeled and diced
.
1 tbsp garlic, minced
.
2 cups tomato, chopped
.
8 ounces picked cooked crab meat
.
1 cup coconut milk
.
2 or 3 tbsp chopped Coriander, or to taste
.
Zest of half a lime
.
Salt and freshly chopped or ground hot pepper to taste (preferably Bahian pimento de cheiro or malagueta)
.
Optional garnish: 4 boiled crabs cut in half
.
Heat oil in a large sauté pan or skillet and add onion, gherkins and zucchini. Cover and cook 6 minutes over medium heat, then add garlic, tomato, picked crab and coconut milk. Stir and cook uncovered until the tomato is reduced and the sauce turns light orange (about 8 minutes). Add cilantro and lime zest, then season to taste with salt and hot pepper. Once the liquids are well combined and hot (about 5 minutes), serve over rice with hot boiled crabs as a garnish. Serves 4 to 6.
.
These seeds are treated, they are coloured pink, do not eat the seeds or use for oil or stock feed. Handle with care.

EACH PLANT GROWS DOZENS OF GHERKINS!

ALSO CALLED SOURSOP – CUSTARD APPLE! A WONDERFUL FRUIT WITH REALLY HEALTHY BENEFITS AND THE TASTE OF SWEET CUSTARD! CUSTARD APPLE IS ALSO CALLED SOURSOP AND IS ONE OF THE FEW TROPICAL FRUITS THAT ARE READY TO BE EATEN IN WINTER!
It’s a small, upright tree to 9 metres in it’s natural environment but usually does not grow as tall when potted or outside it’s natural range. It will bear many fruits a year once established. Fruits range in size from 400 grams to 1.5 kilos!
Custard apples contain anti-oxidants like Vitamin C, which helps to fight free radicals in our body. It is also high in potassium and magnesium that protects our heart from cardiac disease. Not only that, it also controls our blood pressure. Custard apples contain Vitamin A, which keeps your skin and hair healthy.
The easiest way to eat custard apples is to just cut it in half or pull apart with your hands and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh to eat. Try adding a little lime juice for a complementary flavour. The taste of a custard apple has been described as like sweet custard mixed with cooked apple or pear flesh.
While research suggests soursop can fight cancer, it has not been studied in humans.
Custard apples have a deliciously creamy texture, sweet taste and are best enjoyed fresh or as a simple yet impressive dessert. Custard apples are eaten when soft and only the flesh is eaten.
Custard apples can range in size, from 500g – 1.5kg, which makes them perfect to share with family and friends. You can simply enjoy them fresh by cutting a custard apple in half and scooping out the flesh.
Custard apples pair well with other fruits such as banana, pineapple, papaya and orange and with flavours such as cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, vanilla and honey. They are also superb as a simple dessert. Here are some ideas!
Serve a custard apple with shredded coconut and nuts on top of breakfast cereal for a morning treat!
Tease out the flesh from a custard apple, discarding the skin and black seeds, and pop the flesh into a blender with ice cream, milk and honey for a decadent smoothie!
How to plant:
STORE SEEDS IN YOUR FRIDGE (NORMAL SHELF).
SOAK FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE PLANTING IN ROOM TEMP. WATER. Plant in fertile soil with a good compost element. Plant about 2cm deep, cover and keep moist, plant in warmer months of the year or under a cloche or on top of a heated mat.

NEW! DRAGONFRUIT RED FLESH IS SUCCULENT AND SWEET, IT REALLY IS SOMETHING EXTRA SPECIAL! EASY TO GROW – GREAT FOR BEGINNERS!
Whenever someone tells me that they’re a black thumb, I often tell them to try dragonfruit. Also known as pitaya, dragonfruit is a hemi-epiphytic cactus that produces large and tasty fruits with coloured skin and a surprising flesh that’s peppered with tiny black seeds.
These seeds are really easy to germinate, and the patient gardener will one day be rewarded with a fruit bearing plant of their own!! Each fruit has hundreds of seeds, and almost every one of them has the potential to someday become a fruit bearing vine. Almost every single one of the seeds I planted have sprouted, and each of those seedlings is doing wonderfully to this day. Even though they do well in the shade, they’ll never flower on a shady balcony and will eventually have to be trained up trellises in large containers in a warm and sunny spot.
Mixed seeds, plants generally have the pink flower but may have white, yellow or red.
MEDIUM SIZED BLACK SEEDS, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE. PLANT THESE AFTER THE LAST FROST AND KEEP THEM WARM

Grow Notes
Plant in full sun in well-draining soils.

Sow
Raise seedlings in Spring in seed starter or cactus soil mix, planting at 5mm depth.

Cover with a plastic, the cover will retain moisture and warmth.

Keep soil moist but never wet.

The tiny seedlings emerge with two glossy leaflets, and the stems will slowly begin to grow in their community pot until they need to be divided. New offshoots will begin to form at the bases of the stems.

Gently untangle the mass of cacti and potted most of them up individually. Even though they do well in the shade, they’ll never flower on a shady balcony and will eventually have to be trained up trellises in large containers in a warm and sunny spot.

Germination
14-21 days at 18-25°C

Maturity
Seed-grown dragon fruit trees may take up to seven years to fruit, and the plant might not look like the parent plant.

Goji Berries! Often called Wolfberries in China. These are Lycium chinense which are the ones that they are used extensively in cooking for health benefits but I just love their flowers and fruit, and they add something really special to the garden!

As a food, dried Goji / wolfberries are traditionally cooked before consumption. Dried Goji/ wolfberries are often added to rice congee and almond jelly, as well as used in Chinese tonic soups, in combination with chicken or pork, vegetables, and other herbs such as wild yam.

The berries are also boiled as a herbal tea, often along with chrysanthemum flowers and/or red jujubes, or with tea, and packaged teas are also available. There are plenty of recipes with the berries in them online.

Various wines containing Goji/ wolfberries (called g?uq? ji?) are also produced, including some that are a blend of ordinary grape wine and wolfberries.

Young wolfberry shoots and leaves are also harvested commercially as a leaf vegetable.

Goji berries are packed with many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They’re associated with many health benefits, including improving blood sugar control, helping with weight loss, fighting aging and protecting against cancer.

OH GOURD! THIS SMALL WARTED GOURD MIXTURE GIVES YOU LOTS OF SHAPES AND COLOURS! FUN TO GROW, GREAT FOR DISPLAYS AND DECORATIONS!

Baby Gourds Small Warty Mix is an open-pollinated variety that matures in about 14 weeks. This warted mix has an assortment of flats, rounds, short pears, pears and spoons in a variety of solid, striped and bicolour patterns. The beautiful yellows, greens, oranges and whites make a bright display. Quite an ornamental display for your garden!

PICTURES SHOW ALL THE COLOURS / TYPES IN THE MIX. EACH TYPE WILL BE INCLUDED. NOT SEPARATELY LABELLED.

Grow Notes
Gourds can be grown on the small “hills” that is the traditional way of growing squash or gourds. However, because they are a long-season crop, they end up sitting on the ground for long periods and could become rotten on the side touching the ground. One way to avoid this problem is to use 3” or so of mulch around the vines and under the fruit, however, it’s just as easy to grow them up trellis’s, fences or cages instead.

Susceptible to mildew, so water the plants roots not the leaves.

Grow in full sun, moist well drained soils.

Sow
Sow direct in Spring or after frosts have ended 20mm deep. Space 200cm apart.

Germination
7-14 days at 24-26°C

Maturity
90-120 days, frost tender Annual.

These are not intended for medical use but for general use where protection from particles in the air is needed. Re-usable – each mask is wrapped for protection.

If bacteria or fungi are already present in low numbers, they can quickly grow to very high numbers in optimal conditions. This includes many bacteria in soil that can cause problems in people – such as strains of nocardia (causes nocardiosis, an infection of the lungs or whole body), legionella (causes Legionnaires’ disease), and clostridium (causes tetanus).

Potting mix is usually a mixture of inorganic and organic material. It’s also often at a higher temperature compared to soil because of where and how it’s stored, so it retains heat for longer. Bacteria and fungi generally grow better and reach higher numbers when they are in moist and warm environments.

Numerous fungi can also be present in soil and potting mix. In certain areas of the world, soil contains fungi that can invade if inhaled and cause disease. These include the lung infection histoplasmosis, which is caused by a fungus that lives mainly in parts of the United States, but also in some parts of Central and South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia.

The risk to most people of becoming infected with any of these bacterial or fungal diseases is very low. Disease is more likely to be a risk when the micro-organisms are present in very high numbers.

Bacteria or fungi also need to be introduced into our bodies to cause disease. This usually happens through inhalation, where the organisms go into the lungs. It can also occur through the skin, such as with the chronic fungal infection sporotrichosis, also known as “rose gardener’s disease”. If, for any reason, micro-organisms are present in high numbers, then the exposure and risk will be higher.

There are many things we can do to protect ourselves from introducing bacteria or fungi into our bodies. The most essential is basic hygiene.

If people smoke, eat or drink without first washing their hands, they are at an increased risk of legionella infection from potting mix. This implies direct inhalation isn’t the only way for the bacteria to enter the body, but that oral intake of micro-organisms via contaminated hands is also a risk.

Another added protection measure is wearing gloves. This doesn’t mean you should then not wash your hands before eating. A physical barrier in addition to washing hands obviously provides better protection.

Masks can be worn in high-risk situations, such as when opening a bag of potting mix. Directing the bag away from yourself when opened, and being in a well-ventilated area, will decrease any inhalation risk.

People who have a lower immunity, such as those with diseases such as HIV or lymphoma, diabetes, any immunosuppressant use, or generally older in age are more at risk of catching something from potting mix. So it’s even more important they use extra appropriate precautions, including wearing masks when in higher-risk situations.

Set of FIVE watering spikes. Green with a yellow valve. The water will slowly emit through the valve over 1 to 15 days, automatically watering your plants. The drip speed is up to you. You set the drips yourself, very large plants may need two water dripper bottles.

You can use most bottles, such as soft drink bottles, even up to 2 litres, 600ml water/coke bottles, etc. Simply pierce a hole in the bottle on the base so it is at the top of the bottle when turned upside down. This will allow the water to move through the valve.

This has flow control to make sure your plants are watered right the way through your holidays or just over time so you don’t forget to water!

Simply screw a spike onto a full bottle of water, then insert the pointed end directly into the soil near a potted plant’s stalk. Adjust the drip speed to suit.

You do not need to worry about watering your plants when you’re away on a short break, this clever device simply attaches to any screw-top bottle and does the watering for you.  You can also combine water and plant food such as Seasol in your bottle then use the water spike to deliver it!

The Chinese Gooseberry is native to eastern Asia. It was introduced to cultivation in the West some time around the 1900s, but was not commercially exploited until a name change and a very successful marketing campaign in New Zealand made it a familiar sight in fruit shops all over the world. The fruit we now know as kiwi fruit has hairy brown skin and green flesh with a centre ring of black seeds.

The skin is brown like that of the normal kiwi fruit, except it is a little bit less hairy. However, the interesting part of this new fruit is the inside. It has juicy yellow to green flesh with a mango or melon type taste, and it’s sweeter than the normal kiwi fruit.

Grow Notes
Prefers full sun, in moist, rich and well-draining soil.

It is necessary to supply a trellis as support for the plant.

Sow
Fill half of a resealable plastic bag with moistened perlite. Lightly push the seeds into the perlite and sealing the bag keep in the fridge for 4 months.

Mist the perlite as needed with a water-filled spray bottle to keep it moist.

Raise seedlings by planting seeds in seed raising mix, planting at 3mm depth.

Keep the soil moist, never wet.

Cover the pot with plastic wrap or a plastic bag to retain humidity and moisture. Place the pots in a warm, bright location out of direct sunlight.

Remove the plastic once the Kiwifruit seeds germinate and position the tray in a sunny window until large enough to transplant outside after any chance of frost has passed in Spring.

Germination
40-60 days

Maturity
Hardy Perennial.

The Kiwiberry (Actinidia arguta) is a rapid-growing deciduous climbing vine producing small, smooth-skinned fruits that can be enjoyed whole. Sweeter in flavour compared to traditional kiwifruit, it’s a delightful experience to cultivate them yourself, as they are rarely found in stores.

Also known as Siberian gooseberry, Siberian kiwi, hardy kiwifruit, kiwi berry, arctic kiwi, baby kiwi, dessert kiwi, grape kiwi, northern kiwi, or cocktail kiwi, the fruits come in green, brownish, or purple hues, sometimes with a reddish blush. Often sweeter than traditional kiwifruit, these hardy kiwifruits can be consumed whole without needing to be peeled.

Actinidia arguta was initially classified as Trochostigma argutum by Philipp Franz von Siebold and Joseph Gerhard Zuccarini in 1843. It was later reclassified under the genus Actinidia in 1867 by Friedrich Anton Wilhelm Miquel, following a proposal by Jules Émile Planchon.

Kiwiberry plants are dioecious, meaning individual plants are either male or female, and both are necessary for fruit production. One male kiwiberry plant can pollinate up to six females, but distinguishing between them is only possible once they begin to flower. Male flowers feature anthers—small sticks protruding from the flower’s centre with fluffy yellow pollen on their tips. In contrast, female flowers are distinct, resembling the spokes of a bicycle wheel when fully opened, lacking the central hub.

Grow notes:

Put the seeds into a plastic zip-lock bag with a tablespoon of moist seed raising mix or vermiculite. Place into the fridge for 6 to 8 weeks. Plant in Spring after all chance of frost has gone. Plant in summer too but be very careful to keep them under shelter, well watered and shaded.

Sow the seeds in clean pots at first, keeping them under cover until they shoot. Sprinkle just a touch of clean sand over the seeds to cover and mist water on them, keep them damp but not wet.

Spray with fungicide to prevent browning off fungus. Cover with cling wrap. Keep them under shade cloth or similar and once bigger you can re-pot. Or scatter them on a damp paper towel, which you should then place in a clear zip lock bag in a warm spot (after refrigeration as mentioned). Keep a careful watch for germination.

Germination
14-21 days at 22-35°C

AN AMAZING AND VERY COOL LOOKING TOMATO! THE KUMATO IS SOMETHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY!

The ‘Kumato’ variety emerged from a crossbreeding initiative by the Syngenta corporation. In this process, Syngenta merged two distinct tomato varieties to produce an F1 hybrid known as ‘Kumato’. The aim was to incorporate a range of favorable traits from both parent varieties into ‘Kumato’. In 2009, ‘Kumato’ received a patent, and it is now sold in North America and Europe, occasionally being referred to as ‘Rosso Bruno’. Additionally, smaller versions of ‘Kumato’, known as ‘Mini Kumato’, were developed a few years later and are primarily cultivated in Spain and western Europe.

Grow Notes
Prefers full sun in moist, well-draining soil.

It is necessary to supply a stake or alternate support for the plant.

Sow
Sow direct or raise seedlings in Spring or early Summer. Planting seeds at a depth of 5mm with 50cm plant spacing and 70cm row spacing.

Keep soil moist, not wet.

Sakata’s are about the size of a large grapefruit, with delicious almost honeydew-esque light green flesh and a very thin pale rind. Like many Asian melons they are often picked while there is still a light crispness to the flesh and the skin has just begun to turn a light yellowish green.
The flavour is super sweet like a perfectly ripe honeydew but the texture is more crispy like an apple. How to eat: Cut off the outer skin and cut into wedges. The seeds are edible and we highly recommend eating them for the full flavour experience!
Sakata’s Sweet melon is a smaller, softball-sized melon with a grey-green skin that turns a yellow-green colour when ripe. The shape is not quite round, with a distinct pucker at the stem base. Whereas most melon stems will detach from the plant when ripe, the stem of the Sakata’s Sweet melon must be cut from the plant as soon as the leaves begin to discolour. The edible skin of the heirloom melon is thin and the yellow-green flesh is crisp and fragrant. Sakata’s Sweet melon looks much like a honeydew melon in colouring and has a similar flavour profile. The flesh is juicy.

Sakata’s Sweet melon is often eaten raw similarly to honeydew melons. In some Asian cultures the melons are harvested when just slightly under-ripe and used for pickling, adding the perfect balance of sweet and sour to chicken curry salads. Cut into wedges for a sweet summer snack or into bite-sized pieces to add to fruit or savory salads. The flesh blends nicely into a smooth consistency for beverages and chilled soups. The Sakata’s Sweet melon will keep at room temperature for up to a week once ripe. Cut melon should be kept refrigerated and consumed within four days.

Only recently appearing in western markets, Sakata’s Sweet melons were grown in Japan and China for centuries. The seeds for this heirloom melon were released by the Sakata Seed Co. in Yokohama, Japan. The seeds have found a market with home gardeners in both the United States and abroad.

These are not intended for medical use but for general use where protection from particles in the air is needed. Single use, each mask is wrapped for protection.

If bacteria or fungi are already present in low numbers, they can quickly grow to very high numbers in optimal conditions. This includes many bacteria in soil that can cause problems in people – such as strains of nocardia (causes nocardiosis, an infection of the lungs or whole body), legionella (causes Legionnaires’ disease), and clostridium (causes tetanus).

Potting mix is usually a mixture of inorganic and organic material. It’s also often at a higher temperature compared to soil because of where and how it’s stored, so it retains heat for longer. Bacteria and fungi generally grow better and reach higher numbers when they are in moist and warm environments.

Numerous fungi can also be present in soil and potting mix. In certain areas of the world, soil contains fungi that can invade if inhaled and cause disease. These include the lung infection histoplasmosis, which is caused by a fungus that lives mainly in parts of the United States, but also in some parts of Central and South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia.

The risk to most people of becoming infected with any of these bacterial or fungal diseases is very low. Disease is more likely to be a risk when the micro-organisms are present in very high numbers.

Bacteria or fungi also need to be introduced into our bodies to cause disease. This usually happens through inhalation, where the organisms go into the lungs. It can also occur through the skin, such as with the chronic fungal infection sporotrichosis, also known as “rose gardener’s disease”. If, for any reason, micro-organisms are present in high numbers, then the exposure and risk will be higher.

There are many things we can do to protect ourselves from introducing bacteria or fungi into our bodies. The most essential is basic hygiene.

If people smoke, eat or drink without first washing their hands, they are at an increased risk of legionella infection from potting mix. This implies direct inhalation isn’t the only way for the bacteria to enter the body, but that oral intake of micro-organisms via contaminated hands is also a risk.

Another added protection measure is wearing gloves. This doesn’t mean you should then not wash your hands before eating. A physical barrier in addition to washing hands obviously provides better protection.

Masks can be worn in high-risk situations, such as when opening a bag of potting mix. Directing the bag away from yourself when opened, and being in a well-ventilated area, will decrease any inhalation risk.

People who have a lower immunity, such as those with diseases such as HIV or lymphoma, diabetes, any immunosuppressant use, or generally older in age are more at risk of catching something from potting mix. So it’s even more important they use extra appropriate precautions, including wearing masks when in higher-risk situations.

MAY I INTEREST YOU IN A MOUSE MELON? IT’S A CUTE LITTLE CUCAMELON! LOWEST PRICE EVER SAVE 50%! LITTLE CUCUMBER TASTING FRUITS AND PLENTY OF THEM! ATTRACTIVE ON THE VINE AND YUMMY IN THE TUMMY! PERFECT IN SALADS AND THEY MAKE DIVINE PICKLES TOO! STILL QUITE RARE IN CULTIVATION.

A diminutive melon originating from Mexico has been causing a stir in farmer’s markets, captivating home gardeners seeking novel additions to their menus. With its distinct flavor, reminiscent of cucumber and green fava bean, coupled with its pest-resistant and vigorously growing nature, this unique vine offers abundant productivity, making it a compelling choice for cultivation.

Commonly known in Spanish as “sandíita” (little watermelon), this melon boasts an array of colloquial names in local dialects and Native American languages, many of which translate to “mouse melon.” This nomenclature is apt, given the fruits’ striking resemblance to miniaturized watermelons, perfect for a mouse-sized picnic.

Scientifically termed Melothria scabra, this plant hails from Mexico and Central America, with its description credited to French botanist Charles Victor Naudin in 1866. However, the plant’s botanical classification remains a subject of contention, particularly due to its close relatives in Africa.

While botanists grapple with classification, Native American peoples have long embraced the mouse melon, incorporating it into their diets and traditional practices since pre-Columbian times, as evidenced by its rich array of indigenous names. Beyond culinary use, these communities also utilize the melon in medicinal applications, though such knowledge often remains undocumented in mainstream literature.

Mouse melons lend themselves admirably to various culinary endeavors—they excel in stir-fries, can be pickled akin to French gherkins, enjoyed raw in salads, or preserved akin to Polish dill pickles. Additionally, they impart texture and flavor when incorporated into salsas.

In a bid to popularize the fruit, several seed companies have coined alternative names, such as “cucamelon,” “Mexican sour gherkin,” “cuka-nut,” and the French designation “concombre à confire” (preserving cucumber). Yet, the charm of the original moniker, “sandia de raton” (mouse melon in Spanish), remains unmatched, evoking whimsical imagery akin to a Mexican rendition of a Beatrix Potter tale—perhaps a reason for their appeal among children.

Easy to germinate and propagate, mouse melons offer a hassle-free cultivation experience, ensuring a steady supply of seeds for future planting endeavors. With their versatility and enchanting allure, these tiny melons promise to captivate both gardeners and gastronomes alike.

YOU WILL GET SEEDS FOR BOTH THE GREEN AND THE RED VARIETIES.

Ever heard of carnivorous plants? Get ready for a botanical surprise: introducing Carnivorous Passionfruit—Passiflora foetida var. foetida! This remarkable plant not only adds an intriguing touch to your garden but also helps keep pesky midges and flies in check.

Also known as Love in the Mist, this passionfruit variety boasts white and pink/purple flowers and shares lineage with the Giant Granadilla Passionfruit. And yes, it’s carnivorous!

Its fruits, either yellow or red with black seeds, are not only delicious but also have little pulp. The inner leaves, adorned with tiny hairs, serve as traps for unsuspecting insects. Scientists are still deciphering whether the plant consumes or merely captures these insects, but they are certainly dissolved either way. Surrounded by a halo of feathery leaves, the flowers eventually give way to the formation of passionfruit nestled within the fluffy foliage—a sight both captivating and enchanting for both adults and children alike.

Despite its insect-eating prowess, Carnivorous Passionfruit doesn’t attract insects; rather, it has evolved this mechanism to protect its fruit from potential harm. Ingeniously, it likely also benefits from the nutrient-rich result of its insect captures—talk about efficiency! Plant it near your entrances, whether back or front doors, or above the chicken coop, and watch it work its magic in keeping those bothersome flies at bay.

With the ability to produce fruit without the need for both male and female plants, you only need one Carnivorous Passionfruit plant to enjoy its unique benefits.

SEEDS ARE MEDIUM SIZED, THEY LOOK LIKE A SMALL BEETLE, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.

DON’T PAY AND ARM AND A LEG FOR EXPORT QUALITY FRUIT!  DISEASE RESISTANT AND EASY TO GROW.

Please note these seeds have been treated with sulphur to allow us to import them, do not eat the seeds or feed them to livestock. The sulphur will completely dissipate into the soil once planted with watering and will not effect the growing or eating. It’s just so they can ensure no foreign insects are alive in the seeds and that they will grow without fungus issues.

Rockmelon hybrid Argyle has a good disease resistance, is lightly striped and has a smooth and sweet taste. Sure to be a family favourite in no time at all!

Grow Notes
Prefers full sun in moist, well-draining soil.

Protect from mildew by watering the roots and not the leaves. Dig in compost. If no bees are around you can either grab some flower seeds to grow near the melons or you can even hand pollinate! A small brush and a bit of backwork – so attracting the bees is the best idea in my humble opinion!

It has a good disease resistance, is lightly netted and has a smooth and sweet taste. Sure to be a family favourite in no time at all!

As there are no pics of this on available, I have chosen something similar to put in the pictures but your grown melons will or may differ slightly from the pictures shown.

VERY RARE, THESE HAVE BEEN TREATED WITH A FUNGICIDE SO WE CAN IMPORT THEM SO PLEASE HANDLE WITH GLOVES, I USE CHOPSTICKS IF I DON’T HAVE GLOVES! LOL

The seeds have been coated in a pink sulphur mix. Please do not eat the seeds or give them to livestock. This will not effect the eating or the ground around it, it is a naturally occurring chemical in the soil which will dissipate once watered.
