Storing Garlic

Posted: 13/09/2014 at 09:59

Thanks to a friends (bad) advice I left my garlic in the ground too long and although I have a good harvest, they have all shed their protective papery covering.  How will this effect storing them please?  Also, some are sprouting, can I plant these out for next year?

Thank you for the advice. I was given to understand that it's quite difficult to grow your own from seed?

After a stunning display this summer the flower heads have finished.  Should I remove them, and do I need to keep feeding the plants to ensure a good show next year?

Thank you so much for all your help, I think this site is absolutely brilliant for relatively inexperienced gardeners such as myself.

Been in the same pots for 4/5 years, and feel they're now being strangled as the roots go round and round, and out the bottom.  Having said that, the display has been phenomenal this year, so how do you make the decision?

I have two fantastic pots of Agapanthus, but they have been in the same pots for about 4 years now, and really look as if they are trying to escape through the bottom.  Is it time to divide them, and, if so, when do I do it?

Collecting seed from Cerinthe

I have grown Cerinthe from seed this year, but as there weren't many seeds in the packet I wondered if it would be worthwhile trying to collect them from my plants for next year?

Yes, Daintiness, we have the right soil, and I have all the shrubs you mention growing in abundance.  Lynn, thank you for the tip on pollination - I'm sure the children could afford 2!  How close would they need to be to each other though?

I thought I might ask my children to buy me a blueberry tree for my upcoming birthday - but where to plant?  is it best in the garden (south west facing), or on the deck in a nice big pot?  And, are they difficult to cultivate?

Potting up Agapanthus

I know that Agapanthus should be kept tight, but at which point should I take them to the next size pot?  I have two large pots, about 4/5 plants in each, now not only are the roots twisted round and round, they are trying to escape out the bottom!
