Planting aliums

i plant most bulbs deeply.  They develop stronger roots, are less likely to be dug up or damaged by weeding and the stems are then are bigger and better

I remember seeing a driver turn his car in town square and hitting a brand new car yet drove off. A queue of people waiting for the bank to open and lots of others around but nobody did anything.  I gave chase on foot,,much to the embarrassment of my then very young nephew, and stopped the car. got him to leave his written details and I got witness names.  Hero or what?  Ha ha 

people SHOULD stop, hold their hands up and do the right thing.  It annoys me when they don't.
