Clari the GC nearest to me has plenty of garlic selections. Bit far for you to go for a 1.65 quid bulb  If you are about and touring it's the one named after a stately home with the largest frontage in Europe

Lizzie I forgot to say that I hope your arthur feels better today   Also hope Fairy hasn't wrecked herself

I've taken beans down, been weeding & deadheading and have started my 4th Dalek for winter compost stuffs, handy as not too far from backdoor. Old GH cleaned ready for pots that need overwintering.

The last of the nice fingernails have gone and as per usual when in the garden I've got scruffy  Fliss Kendal looked cute with a blob of dirt on her nose, or so OH tells me, I just look like a scruff

Hope Dove enjoyed last night's WA party

Archie your comment earlier about road kill creased me  Hope you've remembered that it is National Curry week    

Hope all have a great evening especially the salt miners

I agree with Bekkie Feb is the "usual" time to sow parsnips but depending on the winter you have had March is often best in the UK.

When to Plant Garlic

Soz' Clari I don't know.

I planted mine yesterday, maybe not conventional but I start mine in small pots and when they start to grow I plant them in the garden, the birds then seem to leave them alone.

Many years ago I remember Dad quirting a small amount into boxer dogs mouth, at the side, closed his mouth, tipped head bag and massaged his throat. Dunno if that helps,  don't want you to choke your dog.
