Magnolias don't like to be pruned.  They are apt to produce a lot of unproductive shoots.

Get picking on that Purple Sprouting or it will bolt too.

Onion sets rotting?

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 23:50

Sounds right to me.  The new onion will use the onion set to grow.  The onion set will rot away after it has been exhausted.

You can use newspaper.  If it is windy enough to blow off the paper there will not be a frost.

Take it to a tyre place.  They will put in a new inner tube or what it requires far faster than you can.

Decapitation a possibilty

After it has flowered, cut it as short as you wish.  It will be more manageable then.  It will recover more quickly than you think!

composting new biodegradable bags

Posted: 19/03/2017 at 15:45

Yes, send them to landfill.  The biodegradable bit is a bit disingenuous; it salves the feelings of the supermarket who think they are doing a Good Thing. 

The bags biodegrade efficiently in anaerobic conditions over time.  That is they biodegrade in landfill.  My Council who take compost making seriously ask us not to put biodegradable bags in the food waste.  Get yourself paper bags or use newspaper to wrap the waste. But please if you have a food waste collection do not put food waste into landfill.
