I love this thread; will just dash out into the garden with the camera

Garlic

I'm in a similar quandary; garlic starting to yellow, but on the elephant garlic, no separate cloves have developed; I thought that this was down to the mild winter, but will look at all those useful garlic websites later and learn more about it

Philippa; you are so right

Roses too high above fence

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 18:12

It looks pretty leggy; I would cut it back hard to about knee height this Autumn. Does it get any sun on this side of the fence, or is it stretching up to get sun from the other side? Also I would suggest feeding it with some granular rose feed, according to instructions on the packet.

If you don't want to use Provado which can kill bees I believe, then just put on some rubber gloves if you are squeamish (like me) and pick them off and stamp on them.

Enjoy

BusyL, I don't use Facebook, so I can't keep in touch with progress; perhaps someone braver (and younger) uses Facebook and could tell us

Welcome to the fruit & veg forum

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 17:53

I was at a clients house this weekend; she is a brilliant cook and I always look at her great collection of recipe books. I found this really fantastic book for fruit and veg growers; Able and Cole, Veg Box Companion by Keith Able (or Abel). £12.99, but may be cheaper on line. This is not an ad; I've never heard of these people before, but was impressed by things like radish leaf pesto
