Moving Garlic On

Posted: 19/04/2013 at 16:34

Hi I purchased bulbs that were sprouting on Tuesday and put them straight into the ground when I got home..... I know this may sound a silly question as its my first time growing them as well but how do you know when they are ready to harvest? I have been led to believe when I bought them that when the greenery has gone brown its time or that you can leave them for next year if the bulbs are not big, would love to know if this advice was correct? Pleased with myself that I have planted them in a sunny well drained border I covered them in rotted manure and is it true you occasionally water them with tea?

Red Hot Pokers What do I do next

Hiya thanks - was a little confused on what to do next - my dilemma is solved, had never grown them before so was totally baffled 

Red Hot Pokers What do I do next

Posted: 10/04/2013 at 15:22

Unsure what to do next... Grew them into large stemmed pokers last year and removed the dead stalk down to the base of the plants, when they had finished.. However the leaves remained green all through the winter and are still green with a few leaves going off.

Do I leave all the greenery

Remove each dead leaf as it dies off

Or remove all the greenery now...

If someone would kindly poke me in the right direction please

 

Black Slab Issues

Hi it was the first time the landscaper had used the sealant apparently and unfortunately his company no more!! Fine sand seems a good idea and it may wear down the sealant

Many thanks Blackest looks like I will have to gradually let it wear off as its indian black slate just hoped there was something out there I could paint on and then wash off that is garden friendly its such a large area that has been done

Black Slab Issues

Hello

Last year we had laid black slabs and the landscaper used a sealant on them. Unfortunately this made them look very shiny and black but also lethal once it became wet. They now look very unsightly as I have tried unsuccessfully to pressure wash off the sealant.... Does anyone have an idea of a good solution to take off the sealant that is safe for the garden???
