I have one of these, stainless steel and can be used for unpeeled cloves as well. One of my favorite kitchen tools. Ikea Konic Garlic Press only £2.50. Can thoroughly recommend for those who don't get on with knives!
I'm enjoying every moment of this series. It gives me a chance to see so much of your wonderful gardens from all angles, that I sadly can't come and see in person. For all her masculine ways, Christine comes across as a very kind and thoughtful person and her enthusiasm is second to none.
As I'm more the hibernating type at this time of the year, , I leave the cutting back of most plants (except for clearing up dead and rotting leaves of day lilies and hostas) until I get that first rush of Spring energy.
Fantastic photos, Dove, love the one of the soggy little pup 3rd one down!
Thanks, Verdun and WillB, will do as you recommend. If the briza doesn't survive the winter, I'll see if I can get a perennial one next year.
I think it's this one, Verdun "Pennisetum alopecuroides "Little Bunny", also a Briza, and a Stipa tenuissima.
I have some small ornamental grasses such as Pennisetum and was wondering if they have to be cut back in Spring, like I do with the miscanthus?
Thanks in advance!
Ooops, Dove, didn't notice that!
By the way, wanted to quote your post, but didn't work, is that another blip on the site?
We made ours out of scaffolding boards, they are now 8 years old and showing no signs of rot. Used ones are cheaper if you can get them.
Here a couple of links that might be useful:
