Last years Garlic as this years seed ?

Posted: 06/10/2014 at 14:34

Hello GG, I have used my own seed for several years, but did not have a good crop this year. I'm going to get new cloves to plant and will only use them for about 3 or 4 years before replacing them

Something has eaten the plastic lid of my slug pellets

The mice under the kitchen sink chewed into an unopened packet of mouse poison, and then died in a spectacularly smelly fashion.

What to prune now and when? Please read my message :) Thank you

Nigella seedlings

Tonks, in my experience with Nigella the problem for you will be that the garden will be swamped with them. If there is a hard winter and the seedlings don't make it, don't worry; there will be several hundred coming up in the spring

What and when????

Hello Angela, I think the second one is an Hypericon of some kind. The 2 that I have, I cut them back ruthlessly usually after they have flowered and displayed their berries. They are pretty tough and if it is a nuisance, it will survive being cut back now - as hard as you like.

Sorry can't help with first one.

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
