If the ground isn't frozen they can go straight in the garden. I find their green shoots so cheering in the winter months. The cloves from the outside of the bulb will give the greatest return, I find.

As to the soft bulb; it will be fine if it is starting to throw up green shoots and there is no mould around the bottom of the cloves. There should be roots starting to grow, instead.

Hey! Willowkitten, I didn't say whether I was in favour of GM or not. I just wanted you to give reliable sources for what you wrote. You wrote that garlic cloves might be contaminating the soil. How exactly?

'Monsanto wants to e.g.: Get a patent for seeds and modify them in a way that they won't produce dead seeds (that's just of one their cunning ideas)'

I think you allowed a typo to get into this sentence. Did you write won't instead of will?? It's called the 'terminator gene'.

"Supermarket...I wouldn't put it past them if these are modified and could contaminate the soil if planted out"

Willowkitten, where do you get such nonsense from? How about some links to respected scientific literature!

Repairing my neighbours picket fence - what do I do?

Go and see the neighbour. Apologise and offer to pay for whatever he suggests. If you think you can do it or know someone who can suggest that. You will just have to bite the bullet and pay up.

Get them in the soil if it isn't frozen. They seem to dry out easily. Best harvested as and when you need them through the winter.

Chicken poo and straw

I would add it to the compost as the chickens are cleaned out. Layer it with shredded paper (at this time of the year there won't be too much else) and vegetable waste. If you use it too soon it will burn the plants and it won't rot down well in enclosed bags.
