Strawberry Plants 13 May, CJ (USA - Zone 9b climate)
My Albion and Tiny Treasures strawberries not sweet. What liquid fertilizer should I use? Fish emulsion, Seawed Magic, Worm tea or something else? Also how often? Albion growing one plant each on fence in containers designed to hang. Tiny Treasures are planted in a tower on a turn table . So disappointed, help me please.
Garlic 12 May, Anonymous (USA - Zone 7a climate)
I always grow my garlic from grocery store garlic, if I have no planting cloves of my own. I am in zone7...it alwAys germinated and proceeds to grow beautiful large garlic! I ordered some a good while back from a reputable gardening site, and it did NOT do well...almost no bulbs,
Collards (also Collard greens, Borekale) 05 May, Rolanda (USA - Zone 9b climate)
My collard seeds did germinate but they aren't growing beyond the first set of leaves. What his happening?

Are you planting at the right time? How fertile is your soil. Fertiliser, watering and full sunlight are required.
Strawberry Plants 03 May, Jane Hodges (USA - Zone 7b climate)
In Zone 7B, when can I expect newly planted strawberry plants to bloom? I planted bare root plants three weeks ago (April 12) and they are growing well, but have seen no blooms yet. Am I expecting too much too soon? Thanks!

Read the notes here - 10-11 weeks to harvest. Around my place (Queensland Australia sub tropical climate - cool/warm winters) they plant late March early April and start harvesting in June.
Rhubarb 02 May, Trish I. (USA - Zone 7b climate)
We have very recently (April) moved some rhubarb plants that originated from my FIL's family homestead many years ago, from Denver CO to SC. I desperately want to keep these alive, mostly for my husband. Any advice? Our ground is hard as a rock in most spots and has a lot of clay, so figured I need to keep them in pots. How big of a pot do I need, should I be sure to put them on the side of the house where there's mostly only morning sun, in order to continue the "family line", should I try and gather seeds from the plant for the following year? Thanks!
Rhubarb 06 May, Laura Ellington (USA - Zone 8a climate)
you really are better off putting them in a raised garden bed with mixed clean top soil, lots of compost, peat moss, blood meal, and a slow release fertilizer. Rhubarb get very large and can live for many years and their root systems can get quite large, keeping them in pots will restrict their growth and you will have to water more often and continually use fertilizer more often then them being in the ground.

I suggest you read some articles about growing them. The bigger the pot the better 18-24
Tomatillo 24 Apr, Judy (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Hello , I live In Northern California .Our location is Inland from Ocean. We do get plenty of sun in summer months into October . Do I need to cover gooseberry in afternoon heat ? I got this plant from a friend .I am learning about this Gooseberry Tomato. I want to know whether I can grow this plant behind another taller Purple Tomatillo in a separate barrel about 2 feet away and achieve cross pollination successfully ? Thank you ,Judy
Tomatillo 28 Apr, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Plants need to be planted at the right time of the year. If it is really hot then they will need more watering (if they can take the heat), like each day not each 2-3 days. If you want cross pollination then you need to plant at the same time if close together. A tall plant will shade a smaller plant and it will not grow well, end up thin and weak. I don't know if you can cross gooseberry with tomatillo. I answer questions here and I'm just a home gardener who grows about 20 different vegies.

Onion 02 Apr, Debbie h. (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Can you plant onions that already have a green stem coming from it? Like ones in fridge if not used fast enough .
