garlic is a good one ,made by putting a clove into a bottle of water and leave for a day before use. It helps but you need other protection as well or soapy water is another,its on going battle.
they like a lot of sun and water plus manure and don't pull the stalks to soon. you could force them by covering with a pot (big).
flumpy1 I got them at B+Q.
Humans are far louder and annoying ,cars ,fire works ,and that's in the early hours .enjoy the natural noises of this earth ,bird song or squawk is beautiful.
box blight smells and the leaves turn blackish and the bush looks really sad.
foxglove tree or foxtail lily both I cant grow .
looks to be a good spring even if the soil is soggy
I have to say I have found a few bargains of late and the latest is 50 daffs (mixed) for 99p.Well you might think that is a little early but you can either keep them or plant them for next year. So madly I have bought another 4 bags so I hope I have enough space. I also thought Verne complete compost for seeds e.t.c. good value and good quality at £3 for 50 litres, I buy this as I run out and never enough compost from home made . Anyway that made my weekend in the rain better!
no, looks health,dont over water .
of course ,if you dig it out with plenty of earth and do not damage the roots .Dig a hole deep enough to take it with a bit of compost and place bush in and fill in and tread earth down and water daily for a year so as it can take root. It looks healthy enough .
