    Garlic suggestions and advice needed

    Years ago, I got some Garlic from the Garlic Farm. I forget which varieties for sure now, but one was probably ‘Solent White’. From memory, they performed very well.

    Jonas Gold Apple tree leaves dropping and fruit not growing.

    I use upturned 2L PET drinks bottles with the bottoms cut off, with the spout stuffed into gaps through the membrane I'm planting through, then pour water through the top open end.

    French Beans - Pruning the Leaves?

    Hi Jazzy, I wouldn't take any leaves off your beans as they produce the energy/food the plant needs....you can take off tatty leaves that are going brown on the bottom of Tomato plants.
