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?

Newly planted leylandi dead?

Are you sure you want a Leylandii hedge?  They grow huge very quickly, require a lot of maintenance and totally impoverish the soil around them so that nothing else will grow.

There are lots of other much more interesting hedge choices (and most of them are easier to grow and look after)
