Can you ID this seed pod

Posted: 08/09/2014 at 17:26
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.

banana has produced seed pod what now

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.

What is the netting made of?

Dahlias grown from seed, tubers?

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 14:00
They are usually dug up and stored after the first frost, but that may be a bit to late for you. I would dig them up and put them in boxes of soil until they die down and you can store the tubers somewhere frost-free.

If you raised them from seed, and you decide not to take them with you (there are so many things to do when you move) you can always grow another lot from seed next year.

And how precisely did they get here? On a slow train?
