Strawberry leaves

Though you should factor in the reason plants have leaves.  Some gardeners cannot leave well alone and want to 'tidy' plants up.  Why?

Can you identify these onions

I grow them.  Of course!!

Tomatoes are already flowering

Tomatoes are mainly self-fertile so it will not really be necessary to hand-pollinate them.

Leave them to do their own thing.

Forsythia.  Cut out a third of the branches that have flowered, every year.

Growth follows the knife.  It will bush out fine.

Welsh onions!! I suspect.  They are very useful as they keep growing all through the winter.  They are perennial.

PS they are allium nepal (not absolutely sure about the spelling) rather than allium cymru!

Caters, I would consult a messageboard in the USA, as I'm sure you'll find advice there for your specific climate.

The UK climate is so governed by the sea and winds from specific directions it is difficult to help you.

But do come back here to make us envious of the crops you can grow, but we can't - well, not outdoors.  We're always here for a chat.

Don't throw them out until you have given them time to recover.  If they need protection put a sheet of newspaper over them.  Frost at this time of year always comes on windless nights.

Help us out here.  Where is it, UK or abroad?  Is it flowering now?  Scented?

Could be a rhodie.

Don't forget the caterpillar plants too.  So leave a patch of nettles.

They'd prune the trees for you.
