Should I remove the heads from my Alliums when they go to seed, as I do my Tulips?? Anybody please help as I love these flowers.
Reply to itsallaboutmygarden: I always leave allium heads to develop, especially on beautiful varieties like Allium christophii. They look wonderful for months and months. They also produce seed that can be allowed to fall and self-sow, or collect and sow to raise new plants. Reply to Alfreder: I think you've answered your own question, and I'm sure teh cooler conditions and low light levels have simply stalled growth. As soon as conditions warm-up, and brighten up, your plants should start putting on plenty of new growth. Both temperature and light levels play such an important role in controlling plant growth.

Adam, I completely share your excitement as the end of May approaches, and with it the opportunity to plant things outside. I don't have the luxury of a greenhouse, so have been reluctantly sharing my sunny living room with the little shrubblings. On Saturday I finally got my living room back after planting everything outside over the weekend. 2 casualties so far: an entire tomato plant has been reduced to a withered stem (I think by snails) and one of my lovingly tended pumpkin plants has been scratched to tatters by the not so lovely cat next door. Any tips on cats? I'm in a love hate relationship with them at the moment and have created a little stick forest to try and discourage them. Read my blog 'the day I got my living room back' -

I have placed hay underneath .
Although an avid gardener for twenty years this is my first season growing vegetables thanks to my wife's interest in growing edibles and getting our three year old involved! We currently have peas, carrots, spring onions, lettuce, beetroot, tomatoes and peppers planted out in our new raised beds which will give us a start to our new home grown healthy food. Currently I am working on a base for a new greenhouse which should then give us a few other options. As usual some good tips on here which make informative reading.
