from Steve Mosley in Auckland, New Zealand. Steve says, "I’m from
Auckland but I lived most of my life in Toronto, Ontario, and gardened in Zones
3-6. Now I'm back in Auckland and I garden in a sub-tropical zone. My garden is
only a small urban garden – not some big 1/5th or ¼ acre section. I am really
lucky as I live on lava flow and have volcanic soil – I’ve had enough of clay!!
I have excellent drainage – it requires heaps of mulch and a little fertilizer
(both chemical and organic) – the mulch helps with the water."
