Thanks folks, fleece is off, so I'll see how they do

My garlic have shoots about 3/4 inches long poking through the soil. I have had fleece on them since the first night when, I'm presuming birds, pulled the "seed" bulbs clean out from under the soil.  However, a couple of the shoots look a little tired already and I'm concerned that the fleece is preventing enough light etc getting through....(the best looking shoot was just outside the fleece)......should I just do away with the fleece, or are they still in danger of getting picked by birds?


Thanks for any help

Thanks for the replies fols, apparently we will have another month of cold winter weather! So will maybe wait a couple more weeks then prune. Meant to say the Roses are just plants in the flower bed, not climbers etc

Thanks again

Due to the snow and cold I havent done much pruning to my roses which are probably far too tall as I didnt prune last autumn either (new to gardening). Is it too late to prune them as they are no longer dormant? Would it do more harm than good?


Any advice would be appreciated. Ta.

Beechgrove has been shown up here for at least 25 used to be shown on a Saturday night right before Sportscene (our Match of the Day) and I used to hate it when I was a boy waiting for the footy to come on! Now my folks laugh when I tell them I dont miss it!!

Thanks everyone...I'll check the stem and if OK I'll feed and give a good mulch.  Grade 2 for pruning I'm sure so will check that too..thanks again

Hi, we bought two small Clematis from a supermarket last Spring...about two feet high and only a couple of quid each.....there has been virtually no growth and no flowers on either, and I have read that I should have heavily manured the planting hole and mulched which I didnt really do. I also have few plants round them to offer shade to their "feet"......I haven't pruned at all due to their not being much to prune!...Should I replant, or make a couple of adjustments and be more patient?????? Thanks folks

Anyone oop North started planting yet ?

I'm new to veg growing in Glasgow, but have spuds chitting (1sts and main crop) and herbs and salad from seed, garlic in a bed.......have shallots and red onions waiting to go and was thinking of starting leek seeds on the windowsill this week......then I want to do carrots, parsnips, tomatoes, chillies and corn when its a bit hotter.....almost all in containers, see what happens....
