How does my garden grow?

Getting a very belated start on planting my garden. Raised beds, zone 8, vegetables. What seeds can I plant this late, and what kinds of starts should I get? [more inside]

Edible plants to grow in the shower?

I have a large bathroom/shower room. It is a Japanese bathroom where the whole room gets wet and has a drain in the middle. I am looking for edible plants that like that type of wet/humid/warm environment. The room has a large northerly facing window but does not get any direct light. Maybe some kind of tropical fruit?

Choosing a dwarf fruit tree for a garden

I have a large container in my back yard that I want to use for a dwarf tree. The container is at least 3 by 3 feet and gets full sun. It's very important that the tree stay short - four feet is best, five feet would be ok. I want to get tasty fruit from it. I want it to stay healthy and require minimal maintenance. Please give me species recommendations and tips. [more inside]

Fruits and veggies for a cold, shadowy place

This year I'm trying container gardening for the first time. I've planted some indoors stuff (peppers, physalis, chervil) and am waiting for the shoots to come up. Tomato seeds are on the way (hopefully). I live in Amsterdam (think NYC climate) in an apartment, and I've got a teensie tiny (30cm by 2m / 1' by 7') french balcony facing southeast that I'm going to try to make the most of. At the back (southwest), I've got much more space (about 3m2/27 sq ft), but due to the surrounding buildings it's almost always shadowy and drafty there. I'd really like to make use of this space though, seems like a waste not to. Any ideas what plants I could try growing there? (Please don't say salad. I hate salad.)

Need short Australia-friendly tree that will earn its keep

I need recommendations for small trees, or bushes or shrubs or something, that absolutely won't grow taller than two metres high, can handle dry conditions (Australian summers) and temperatures between -5 and +40 Celsius. Ideally they should either have pretty flowers or produce something edible (but not citrus, I have enough of those already). Needs to be available in Canberra. [more inside]
