Garlic

No. Garlic is as tough as old boots!

It needs cold to help it develop into the seperate cloves.

The growth will be fine just do the usual - keep it weed free and don't disturb it

Still windy here - like you Nut, never thought of the roof vents - b ut they are automatic and don't have a clue how to change them!

Keep looking at the old oak swaying and wondering if it will survive. 

Also we keep having very heavy showers, and then sun

Trying to buy some stuff on ebay but became very bored!

Didn't say - have brought my wind up radio in from GH in case electricity goes because of cables

have left most of my roses, but made sure that the climbers/ramblers are well tied in.

I have moved tall plants and my Olives into the GH, I have left out my Bay, which is in a long tom type pot, but that is because I am unsure how healthy it is.

I have some young trees so I checked the tree ties and did move one further up the main stem.

I made sure any plants waiting to go into garden are in a protected area, but do have my doubts about that.

Moved garden furniture in if possible and keeping my fingers crossed big time for anything else

Gardening Book ideas for Christmas

Hi

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Christopher Lloyds 'The Well Tempered Garden' It is entertaining and informative - a good read.

I was given the RHS books Propagation and one on Fruit and vegetables which are becoming my bibles

Really fancy that RHS A-Z of Garden plants - perhaps on my List for this year

OH!

 

Well I think all we can do is keep this up and running and hope the 'pain' fades

Was going to say what's been done today, not in the mood now. May be back later

Oh Lily I am sorry.

Perhaps you should try to purchase one from an olive tree nursery. There are some around.

I bought my 2 at the Malvern Show when the olive nursery local to here was selling them off in pairs - sort of a bogoff deal

Though they have not done it since they always seem to have really healthy plants.

My NDN bought hers from Morrisons
