Even large rhododendrons don't have deep root systems and are best dug out as it will only regrow if you leave it in.

Harvesting garlic

Posted: 21/06/2015 at 11:48

As with mot of the alliums it's usual to start harvesting when the foliage starts to yellow and drops naturally, but you can have a poke about and see how big the bulbs are and if they look ok you can harvest or leave accordingly. There's never a set time to harvest anything, you just do it when it looks right.

Kaye, honeysuckle is a woodland plant so shade the pot and water it frequently, they like moist and cool roots. if you can do that it should recover.

In one of my gardens I have a robin which follows me a around when I'm planting or hoeing in beds. I move she eats and when I take a barrow to the compost heap she follows and snacks when I dump things. Sometimes I'll turn over some soil, just to watch her jump down and snack, it's a lovely game to play.
