I am an avid Auckland (Howick) gardener, but cannot grow garlic successfully. I use shop bought Printatur bulbs, planted in June, have changed the sites. I prepared the site with composite and kept them weed free. I planted them root down, covered them with 2-3cm soil.

This year the plants grew strongly with relatively no disease, however when harvested they had no bulbs. They just looked like Spring Onions. Such a disappointment! I would greatly appreciate any ideas.

Hi there

I think my tomatoes have mosaic virus – I dont know what to do. Should I be removing all plants and getting rid of my soil? I have heard it lives in the soil for a long time.

Planted quality tomato plants (from Palmers) in large plastice containers with quality potting mix and hand full of sheep pellets. The leaves and now the fruit are curling inwards – the fruit on the Beefstake are little and insignificant. The leaves are not turning colour or falling off. They are placed on the north side on edge of our decking and get plenty of sun from midday onwards. I water them generously every other day. Very disappointed. There are 6 pots/plants. 2 other pots are placed on the ground – concrete below are the same. Other years I have had them in the ground and no problems. We do not have the garden space these days. What am I doing for this to have happened.

My grafted Sweet 100 tomato has been affected on it’s topmost part by last night’s frost, in Rotorua. Should I cut the affected part off, and hope it sends out side shoots, or leave it and hope for the best?

I have tried growing rubber beans for a few years with little success. My garden is north facing well drained soil & I buy seedlings which always grow vigorously with plenty of leaves but very few flowers & hence very few beans. The plants get watered well & fed with liquid fertiliser. What am I doing wrong?

Some of my asparagus crowns which are 4 yr old plants which are about the size of a small saucer are rock hard , and the new shoots are unable to penetrate through, and if they do shoot around there outside of the crown they have brown scales.

A few of my garlic shoots (about 10 – 15 cm long) are going all kinky, like zig-zag ! What might be the cause of this ? Did not have garlic plants in this planter box last year.

Hi there,
I have been looking for an alternative to derris dust as I have tutu children and also not enough patience for continually re-applying the already nuisance derris dust. I came across a product called Dipel and was wondering if you stock it or know of anyone that might. I couldn’t find it on the mitre10 and bunnings websites.Also is there any chance of online shopping on your site?
Kind regards
Richard
