Garlic bulblets

Posted: 04/09/2012 at 19:34

Just found one of my lost garlics tonight and saw that it had formed small little cloves in the flower. Can they be planted or will it take too long for them to become a fully grown bulb? They are the size of milk teeth.

Bye bye Clematis Cassis

Does this also true for clematis Chirrosa var Balerica? I bought one from the garden centre bargain bucket and it looked half dead with some leaves on it. It is more resembling a dodo than a climber now.

Have cut the other one back and will treat it to some fertilizer.

Sorting out a Dormfelder grapevine

My grapevine has gotten slight out of control and quite big. Tried to untangle it today but it feels like the branches are quite brittle and might snap if I do anything too farsh to them. Can I cut them back quite hard in early spring or can I do it now? Have also a vauge memory that you sould cut off anything above two leaves if there is a bunch of grapes forming on it.

The stems are intact, they just look dead. When I cut one open it is not black inside but more gray/white. Not sure if that is good or bad. Should I cut it down to the ground and pray for resurrection?

Is this cylamen planted right

It's already back in the ground. So do you think it was the right side down?

I would be surprised if yours doesn't come through. They are probably tough as old boots and have adopted to your garden.

I planted this cyclamen last year and it produced a very measly canopy of leaves and I was recommended to dig it up when it gone dormant. It only had two seedpods attached to it so I gambled on digging it up today. The domed part was down so I think it was planted ok.


 

How much can a dahlia take?

Maybe I should start the ale traps again. My slugs prefer that to lager.
