I planted them in Nov and dug them up at the beg of August as the stalks had all died down. Glad I can still use them.Thanks for your reply..

I have recently dug up all my garlic and discovered that they are green. I used some last night and they tasted O.K. Are they safe to use-unlike potatoes- and why are they green instead of white? They were planted at the usual depth.

Just about to plant some I bought recently- first time I've tried so will add some good soil and hope the lily beetles don't kill them.Saw a programme about them recently and they sounded easy to grow.

We have covered our veggie patch with black polythene for the last 18 months or so as it was too big for us to cope with. We have now removed some of the polythene and want to grass it over. What is the best type of grass seed to get? It is in a field so want something suitable tough  to blend in with this.It will be cut by a ride on periodically.

Muntjacs

When we lived in Bucks we had muntjacs everywhere. They were very noisy. They jumped into our garden and their saliva killed off our roses!

Thanks everyone. Think once it's dry again I -well my husband-will move the stuff before I burn it. No problems with having a bonfire - we have a lot of land and only one neighbour near enough to be affected so we make sure the wind is blowing away from them or just decide to both do it at the same time! A few years ago we had an electric fence round our veg patch as there are rabbits everywhere and a hedgehog got caught in it and got burnt- needless to say we removed the fence instantly and replaced it with chicken wire.

When is the right time to burn our ever increasing bonfire pile? The last thing I want to do is singe a hibernating hedgehog. I'm in Cornwall so it's warmish.

I think it was due to all the rain we've had in Cornwall.
