When to Plant Garlic

Posted: 17/10/2014 at 07:48

I'm (if I can buy some) hoping to plant my garlic today. I'm sure I read strawberries and garlic grow well together.  Can anyone confirm this before I get my spade out?

Interesting idea AWB. We had a tradition that when you turned 16 a friend gave you a plant - "congratulations you're now of age. But before you let anyone near your panties remember that with fun comes responsibility. If you can't keep this plant alive don't think you can cope with bringing up a baby!!" My aloe vera plant eventually went to live with my godmother as I wasn't sure it would survive the move to Yorkshire. I'm curious if anyone of the others survived!

KEF I may as well have swam home. Not a problem for the truck but I am a little worried for my partner who has gone out to see a friend. At least they've a spare bed!

Now I just need to muster up some energy to grt some jobs done.

Am I going to be the first to admit this new weather front is playing havoc with my joints? I'm only 29 but am creaking and wincing like anything at the moment.

Thanks Liriodendron! Useful to know about the wormery and nitrogen being too much for seedlings. That saves a lot of heartache!

STILL  can't decide what to plant next to my strawberries which is making me start to think maybe it's the strawberries that are in the wrong place 

I've climbed into bed rather than putting the heating on. Now; how can I convince oh to fetch me  a mug of tea...

I'm not sure to be honest Fairy - compared to my four daleks the about of compost you get in the wormery is quite small (3/4 dalak) but it takes much less time to compost so you get a steady rate of it -(you just lift the bottom one out once all the worms have moved up) it does look really fine stuff, quite dark too. I think Edd is the wormery expert perhaps he knows the nutritional value? I was thinking of using it for seeds as it's so fine.
