Chives (also Garden chives) 08 Oct, (USA - Zone 7a climate)
They will be ready to harvest 7-11 weeks later, so in December/January The roots are still alive and they will begin new growth next spring.
Strawberry Plants 01 Oct, Anonymous (USA - Zone 8b climate)
I saved seeds from strawberries, planted them inside under lights, they sprouted after a long wait and are growing. Plants are tiny and growing very slow. How big should they be before planting outside? It's Oct 1st, zone 8b here. Thank you
Strawberry Plants 03 Oct, Anonymous (USA - Zone 8b climate)
Try late October. They should have 6-8+ leaves. Protect them from the sun the first week or two.

Thank you! I'll do that.
Pak Choy (also Pak choi) 26 Sep, Mona Williamson (USA - Zone 8b climate)
First time grower, how will it look when time to harvest? I have some pretty leaves on it now.
Pak Choy (also Pak choi) 28 Sep, Anonymous (USA - Zone 5a climate)
Check harvest time in the notes - like 6 weeks or whatever it says.
Garlic 23 Sep, Sonya (USA - Zone 5b climate)
I would like to choose 2 types of softneck garlic. Any suggestions on which two to choose? I also heard about elephant garlic. If it will grow in 5B... I may just grow that type. ?????? Undecided!
Garlic 29 Oct, Kevin K. (USA - Zone 5b climate)
Sonya, unfortunately soft neck garlic will not survive the winter in our hardiness zone. That means we get to grow hard neck garlic such as purple garlic or porcelain (music) garlic bulbs. Fortunately we still have time if we hurry.
Garlic 22 Sep, Nora Jencks (USA - Zone 10a climate)
Is there any soft neck garlic varieties that I can grow in my zone (10a)
Garlic 30 Sep, Serena (USA - Zone 10b climate)
I live in 10b, I've heard Inchelium Red might grow in my area. I'm trying it for the first time this year - don't have any hopes but you'll never know until you try
Watermelon 19 Sep, Amanda (USA - Zone 8b climate)
I thought my watermelons had died off but in the beginning of this month (September) they decided to start growing again any chance they will actually survive or am I wasting my time?

French tarragon 15 Sep, Donna Daniels (USA - Zone 5a climate)
I got a cutting in June. It's in my raised bed garden. The nights are cooli ng down. Should I put it in a pot and put it in the cellar? Do I stop watering it for a few months? Thank you.

Sunflower 12 Sep, Anonymous (USA - Zone 7a climate)
I live in Northern California mountains. Zone 7a. Can I allow mammoth sunflower seeds to drop in fall to winterize before spring?

Maybe you would pick them and store them.

Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 01 Sep, Elaine (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I tried growing zucchini in raised beds this summer. Followed all the instructions here. They produced 2 or 3 fruit per plant then started dying. Yellow leaves, soggy stems. Maybe I over watered? I gave each plant about a litre of water per week. It’s also been very hot (90F+ constantly from the beginning of June) When you say plenty of water, how much is plenty?
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 03 Sep, BaltimoreHopeDealer (USA - Zone 7b climate)
The most likely culprit was squash vine borers. They bore into the base of the stem and eat the plant from the inside. You will notice that the leaves aren't getting nutrion and will turn yellow/brown. Production will slow down and the roots will start to get squishy and gross. Finally, the plant will fall over and die.
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 17 Sep, Michele (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I had a really bad issue with aphids this year. Killed all my zucchini and cucumbers. Can we plant in September in Zone 9b?
