    Being a total novice at everything to do with gardening I'm thinking I need a perennial gardening calendar. One that tells me what to do month-by-month: what to prune when, what to fertilise with what when, which vegies to grow when, etc, etc. I have a brand new orchard of about 50 trees, and a lovely new native plants garden bed, to say nothing of the vegies growing in my mandala - it's all so daunting and I feel I don't have a clue where to start.

    Has anyone done one up? I know it will have to be location specific, however if you have one that works for you how did you go about it, did you use columns, headings, ... any advice greatly appreciated.

    Peter is up your way and has a great calendar available to members of his site as far as I am aware though I have never seen it. Nice guy too I think

    What do I get if I subscribe?
    The short answer to that question is – all the localised information you need to manage your food garden or hobby farm with organic methods and grow from 300 fruit, vegetable, herb, grain and Australian bush food crops, no matter what level of food growing experience or space you have.
