sunflower seeds problem

They won't be doing that - is it because the shoot is white that it looks like a root?

HELLO FORKERS!

KEF, it's mainly his big 'electric chair' and some pictures off his walls - that sort of thing - think Bro will bring the pony trailer.

By the way, can anyone find the Birthday Thread?  I've been seaching and can't find it   I think OL has a Big Day Today doesn't she???

Oooh yes please GBoy - that'd be lovely - I'll make the coffee

Good morning all - bright blue skies and sunshine and the robin was already on the trellis waiting for his breakfast - OH went out and fed him while he was waiting for the kettle to boil

No gardening today - am meeting with Bro to get Pa's 'stuff' from The Lovely Home.  Maybe a pub lunch?

We've got lots of new forum members since those threads - hopefully they've found lots of buried treasure too

Autumn planted garlic

Posted: 27/04/2015 at 21:46

There have been other similar queries lately - think it's the recent dry weather - if you don't get a good downpour give them a good soaking.

Is this blight?

Cover it with fleece - that's what the farmers do.

OR

as a cheaper solution if you don't have any fleece, earth the plants up as much as possible and then spread a few pages of newspaper over the top at night (remove in the daytime - replace each evening) and hope it's not too windy!

Yes - dig all of it out asap.  Is there just the one?  Where has it come from?
