Gardening and every day helpful info

I have a major problem with your garden videos! They contain so much information about what I don't know that I spend half my day just reading/watching on your web site I have little time left to put things into practice. Great website and I am learning more daily. Next season (after going over everything again this winter) I expect I will have learned enough to supply the whole neighborhood with garden fresh veggies. OFA is the best source of formation on most any problem that might occur in my day to day life.

your garden planner

I Have 3 questions. I live in Greece and have a garden in Australia. Converting dates is easy just move summer to winter but converting US times, when to plant has me stumped.
Does your garden planner do locations outside America.
Do you have a how-to collect seeds, process and preparation to plant as I have many heritage / heirloom verities including citrus and stone fruit collected from Corfu and to complicate matters many imported heritage / heirloom seeds from Australia and want to know how to prepare these properly for planting
and my third question.
as I have no garden as probably 10 mil of the Greek population do you have a chart that shows what can be planted on a sunny balcony.
thanx Kerry Forides for my Facebook page on heritage seed support is Kerry Cameraworks.
