You got lucky with Biosecurity, big fines available... Looks like the soil may be mostly cocopeat. Used because it holds a lot of water, and lets air through as well. You can buy a brick of it at Bunnings and soak in a bucket. Lots of options for fertiliser, the pods probably have hydroponic nutrient mix added. If you or your friends still have the little ...

In your first image in the lower left quadrant there is a leaf with a single black dot on it. This could be an indication of flea beetles. Flea beetles rather like young tomato seedlings. Examine your plants carefully for these small black insects about the size of a pinhead which move quickly but can be caught and carefully squeezed. Check the plants ...

No, this is not blight. Caused by normal everyday fungus and it is called Shot hole as well as other names. A drop of liquid that happens to have the fungal spores in it splashes upon the leaves.

I have gardened for years,too many to count. The most success I have had has been to keep the greenhouse area above 10 celcius at night, water your plants so they do not take up all the moisture when sweating. That's what causes them to freeze.keep them off the ground as it is colder there.I run a fan during the day so they get used to a breeze and makes ...

You should not move them straight outside when they are small seedlings - the sun will kill them,and they won't like the fluctuating temperatures (even during the day) so those conditions will check their growth anyway. Much better to prick them out into pots after they start growing and grow them on a bit, then harden them off when they're reasonably sized ...
