Diluted milk is scientifically proven to be as effective on fungus on plants such as pumpkins, squash, zuchinni etc as chemical preparations and has the added benefit of acting as a foliar fertiliser. My favourite though is using a snail trap, set with beer. Does anyone have any other useful garden tips..
I'm particularly interested to hear any uses for potato chips.. ( or anything else that will compliment the rest of the beer I'll have to use up)

I have found polystyrene fruit boxes are excellent for growing vegies in. I currently have dwarf beans, strawberries & some white queen squash growing.

Palmetto

Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
