perpetual spinach tall and flowering

Why would you want to do that?

If you are determined, let the seeds mature and the foliage die down then separate the seeds out and make sure they are fully dry (or they will go mouldy) before you store them.

For Heaven's Sake!!  It is all part of Nature.  Do you only want the fluffy bunny Nature?

 

Rose black spot

Black spot is a consequence of clean air.  It used to be kept in check by the sulphur pollution.

Sulphur spray is therefore the best cure.  Is it obtainable?

Throw it out now.  If you have neighbours they will not be happy to have that inflicted on them.

Talkback: How to harvest garlic

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 12:18

I think the shortest day tradition is for shallots or something else, certainly not for garlic.  Although I've been growing garlic for over 40 years I note it is still treated as an unusual crop in my 'Expert Book.'

Pull them as and when you need one for the kitchen, you don't have to wait until they are all harvested.

Tomato plants going yellow & dying

Did you delay feeding until the plants had visible small tomatoes or did you start feeding as soon as you planted them?

Garlic

I would just pull a garlic as and when you need one. 'Green' or new season garlic is delicious.

The remainder I would leave until the roots have let go and then lay the garlic out in the sun to dry off.  Like onions.

Potato flowers

I think it means No expert only has 20 plants so he must be sparing with them.  Quite right too; new potatoes are such a treat; every one of them to be savoured!
