I planted a few elephant garlic in June. How many bulbs can I expect from one bulb planted? When can it be harvested? How deep should the pot be? What is the minimum distance between plants?

I have been trying to grow courgettes but they seem to rot. I picked one of the rotting baby courgettes and noticed that they are being eaten by a small white bug that seems to be living in the soil. I have noticed these bugs before while watering, as they seem to come to the top of the soil while watering. It seems to be that the bugs are living in the soil and when the courgettes touch the soil they are being eaten and rot, can you help?

The soil in my Glass House (unheated) is full of Oxalis (white flowered). I have tried repeatedly to sieve out the bulblets but the plants just seem to increase in quantity and vigour. What can I do to get rid of oxalis? The soil in the glasshouse is light and sandy. Should I revert to planting tomatoes etc in containers? I have bought lupin seeds as a mulch crop. Would they be good in the glass house?

I just bought 2 plants in punnets tomatoes and capsicum. Now before i could have a chance to put them into the garden i had to leave them in their punnets for a week without watering. Now they have turned brown, crispy brown. So what i did i have added water and discarded all the dry leaves from the punnet and have put the pots on some wet soil. What i want to know is will the plant recover and grow. What more can i do to help them.

I brought a borage seedling three weeks ago and thought if I left it on my kitchen window sill til warmer weather comes it would be good for it, but it looks as if it has bolted? Could this be the case and does this mean I should not plant it in the strawberry patch as planned?

I planted beans this year and have got good growth in leaves but no flowers at all. Other people I have spoken to have got beans that they are picking and I have yet to see a flower? I planted them in a sunny, well drained area

A blackbird steals my ripe cherry tomatoes! I tried hanging CDs and pieces of string, but it didn’t work. It would be too expensive to have netting over the whole area. Is there a way to scare blackbirds, a plant they don’t like the smell of? Something natural that wouldn’t hurt them, but it would let me have my tomatoes!

I am wanting to have a go at planting potatoes in bags. What are the best bags for this. I assume that black polythene bags might cause the soil out to dry out too much. What size bags do I use and how many potatoes to plant in each bag. I realize the bigger the bag the more you can plant but how close to each other can I plant?
