Annette, did you at least consider beech?? A much friendlier choice.

Any expert sunflower growers to help with this question please?!

Grow multi-headed sunflowers. If you grow tall single blooms the timing is crucial. Take a look in bouquets and florist's bunches; they are all of the smaller sunflowers, not the plate-sized ones.

Compost heaps and rats

It is possible to put down poison safely if it is placed in something like a length of drainpipe where the rats can access it but livestock and pets can't reach it.

Rats are a fact of life. On the farm we used the dalmation, the sheepdog used to catch them but wasn't a killer!

Repairing my neighbours picket fence - what do I do?

It may be an easy fix, but if the neighbour wants to get a professional to do it that's his choice. And Josh will have to pay up!

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.

Well, what did you mean when you mentioned Monsanto and modify in the same post?

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?
