My onion stems aren't drying out

Posted: 28/09/2014 at 12:01
My gosh where are you? We haven't had much rain for weeks and weeks. The soil is bone dry.

There are still some weeks to go until the first frost, but if one is threatened I would lift them and hang them somewhere airy to dry them off. Preferably a greenhouse. And I would pick out any that bolted for use in the kitchen first.

Did you perhaps plant them a bit late?

Old guttering

You can sow peas in guttering, before you slide sections out into the garden.

Otherwise it is too shallow for most things. It dries out very quickly.

Scented Jasmine Advice! BERRIES!

It probably needs feeding. Tip the plant out of the pot; it may be pot-bound and need re-potting. If the pot is full of roots, it may not be getting as much water as it needs.

You can discard the berries unless you want to experiment by growing them.

Lirodendron makes a very large tree in time, so I think you are better off if it is Red Oak!

Ideas for impact tree/bush

Blackthorn is not really suitable in a garden, near a house, because it is not a pretty plant/tree and it has fearsome thorns. It only has one burst of interest when it flowers, then nothing until you have sloes, most years, but not every year.

Meadowsweet

Meadowsweet is lovely. In medieval times they used to strew the floors with as it smells so fragrant.

Don't try to sow the seeds directly in the boggy area as they will be overwhelmed. Sow them in a seed-bed or in trays as you would any seeds.

Looks like mildew. It's been a good season for it. When the leaves drop they should be renewed by fresh ones.

Fertiliser, home-made compost, well-rotted manure. Take your pick, depending on what is available.
