The corn I have growing seems to have lost the “beards”. The cobs are developing quite well, but wondered whether some insect may have got into the cob.

Read your amazing idea of nasturtium planting under brassicas and wondered do we plant two or three seeds directly in garden under the four new brassicas I am hoping to get in this weekend or do I purchase one seedling which has the head start.?

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.
