Talkback: How to grow garlic

Posted: 30/04/2012 at 22:51
I think they need a frost to split into cloves but I might have made that up! I seem to remember something from a long time ago

Do you consider gardening to be like art?

Posted: 30/04/2012 at 22:33
I think anything which makes me smile when I've created the overall look of it because its beautiful is art, but there is a craft which is learnt and handed down from generation to generation in order to allow the art to form.

Gardening book

I picked up readers digest 1001 hints and tips for the garden a couple of months back from a charity shop for 2 pounds. It's got just enough info not to boggle you and let you look on the internet if you do need to know more. Top book for beginners but if your fingers are well and truly green it might be a little simplistic.

Flat Worms

Thanks sotongeoff... I'm a little concerned there where loads in the patch I was digging but it was under what was lawn, so there's the undisturbed ground!

Flat Worms

Me again!

I was digging over a patch this weekend (yep we had enough dry weather on Sat to just about fit it in) And I kept on finding some slug/worms which I've since found out are flat worms.

I'm been told they eat the earthworms (?) which for me doesn't seem so good. Grandad alway's swore by earthworms.

Is there anyway I can reduce thair numbers without harming the earthworms (I realise I'll never completely get rid of them)

Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge, it's really appreciated!

We're in Lancs but the old family home has just been sold.... I think every one of my relitives has been around to my Grannies house liberating just 1 tuber each before the sale went through!!!

Tree Sap

We've got a few flowering cherry in our new (to us) gardren, they are dripping sap, quite a lot of sap from their trunks. They are pretty choked up with ivy, which we've left because the birds are nesting.

Is this normal or is it the ivy damaging the tree?

Pears that never ripen

Posted: 27/04/2012 at 11:49

they could be perry pears? We had some in our garden they where way to hard to eat but good for juicing and cooking....

We've always had peonies at home, I've recently liberated some from my Grannys garden that her grandad planted well not those exact ones but they've come down from those!

Every year we split some off and give them to other family members or friends. They do sulk for a little while but once they get comfy in their new bed they're beautiful deep pink blooms..... Is there anyone you know close by who might consider swapping some of their peony for somthing in your garden? ( Cheaper and Quicker!)
