Can you ID this seed pod

You don't have to split them to get the seed out. They fall out naturally when the cone is ripe and dry.

I haven't got a cone to hand, but I feel the photos are taken from the back, so you can't see the seeds.

The seeds of pine are very definitely like seeds. The sliver only holds them in place. They are like a small black stone. I presume other colours are available.

Is it a scale from a pine tree? If so nothing will germinate unless there is also a seed with it.

Slug pellets and dogs.

Go out at night and cut any you see in half with a pair of scissors. The bits will be gone by the morning.

Growing garlic

Posted: 08/09/2014 at 17:22
Have to say I've been growing my own garlic for a very long time and I've never used a garlic press. Especially when garlic is fresh, as it is at this time of year, it is enough just to squash it with the side of a knife. I suspect garlic presses don't enhance the taste of the cloves. Try not using one.

I don't think bananas produce seeds in a pod. What you have is the flower.

Talkback: Four ways to better compost

Male urine only I understand!

I make excellent compost and I have never added an accelerator. Just make sure you have a good mix of ingredients including shredded paper and cardboard (does not need to be shredded, can be added in sheets, the little muck worms love it).

If you have many woodlice your compost heap may be too dry.

Plant them firmly and protect them from butterflies.
