Straw for mulching

We bought ours from our greengrocer.  Ask, he may know someone.  Also look at the small ads in your local paper.  Or look in Yellow Pages.

Shallots or not

Just because they are on sale in April it doesn't mean it is the ideal time.  I concur with Dave.

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.

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.
