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.

I have grown potatoes in tyres this year and they came away looking really good I thought the wind had caught one lot and all the leaves started to droop and then look as though they had died went looking for some potatoes and found a few but even though they look good they are soft what has gone wrong??
