Care of box hedge

I do use an electric trimmer to do clients box hedging, but for those not used to doing it with machines, I would recommend shears and lines to guide you.

When is a scented rose not......?

Posted: 22/06/2015 at 17:35

Some roses do that Verdun, little or no scent at first and as the bloom really opens the scent develops, just one of the characteristics of some roses. If you don't want it, send it to me, I'll find a home for it.

How did you prune it Julie? It only needs a light prune so if you cut it back too hard that's the reason, otherwise feed it before flowering is the norm and give it something decent to climb up.

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.
