Sprouting garlic in my cupboard

I'd bin it.  Garlic bought from the supermarket etc for cooking may have been exposed to viruses etc.  Not going to harm us but you're not going to get a good crop.


Garlic bought from the GC or from specialist suppliers should be certified as virus free.

Esspee, I use the leafy bit and some of the stem but towards the bottom it gets tougher so I chop it off - usually about halfway up.

There was a lot more to it Fidget, and it was very unpleasant ... but Nora has dealt with it now and least said, soonest mended

My guess is that it's Good King Henry, also known as Markery amongst many other names.


"All Good, Markery, Mercury, English Mercury, Mercury Goosefoot,
Perennial Goosefoot, Many-seeded Goosefoot, Oak-leaved Goosefoot, Red Goosefoot,
Common Orache, Long-stalked Orache, Spear-leaved Orache, 
Prickly Saltwort, Fat Hen or Shoemakers"

plant to climb up dead bay tree

Another vote for honeysuckle here.  It's never happier than when its climbing up a tree - great for wildlife (nectar and berries) wonderful scent and straightforward to grow.

  There's three seeds in each pot Obelixx, and they're only very little pots really.  


I shall be planting them out in clumps of three, as per Monty's system.  Got to give them a bit of space. 


I heard a radio interview a few weeks ago about that POW who left  the money to the villagers who befriended him.  Lovely
