Plant-related resources

on June 13, 2009

One day I would love to have a permaculture garden. But at the moment I have to make do with lots of pots, and my window-boxes. Here are some of the sites I’m using as reference/inspiration.

I love this site! It’s my reference for:
– my little mango seed, although it wasn’t the sort they suggest, with the several seeds inside the husk,
– passionfruit, which I fully intend to try again as soon as I buy more fruits,
– pineapple, as I have a top ready to plant as well as the previously mentioned surprise seeds in a germinating bag
– sweet potato, which I am having a go with even though we don’t really have space for a big vine, or indeed a vine at all. It’s going to be an indoor sweet potato trial, I have to convince my lovely husband to get a large pot.

I’d love to grow cashews, but it’s not very realistic in a house with kids- check out the pictures though to see what they look like!

Here are some links about growing avocados

and peppers

and citrus.

Ideas for other things to grow including ginger root!

And of course the BBC and Wikipedia, which are wonderful resources for, well, everything really!

Gardening-related blogs I follow:
Down To Earth: Living the simple life in Australia. Posts about all kinds of things – check it out.
Blagger: These great people are trying to live self-sufficiently in a suburban town in the UK.
Weekend gardener: written by gardening industry professionals.
Godspace: Christine Sine’s blog is about God, gardening and community, and how the three go together. I especially love her posts about how God speaks to her through her garden.
The Green Parent: This one is not so much about gardening, just the occasional item.
