Artichokes (Globe) 19 Jan, Darla Herring (USA - Zone 7a climate)
Hi there, We have chaotic weather here in Amarillo, Tx. 4 degrees one night in winter, 60 the next day. Sometimes we get snow, usually we don't. Some winters seem like spring/summer, some are freezing. Then occasionally we get a serious freeze in April and a storm that blows everybody's metal roof off. I planted an imperial star or green globe artichoke 8 years ago - it has nice-looking pink spiky looking flowers. I can't get rid of it and I can't make it produce any more than 2.5" artichokes that are hard and inedible. We get to 108 occasionally in the summer. Why are artichokes listed as ok for zone 7A? Nobody I know can grow them here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Garlic 07 Jan, Alan Kuchas (USA - Zone 3b climate)
I’m in zone 3a-3b. In your note for planting garlic , it suggest planting in APRIL? I always plant in October for next years harvest in aug-Sept. if I plant in April will I get bulbs in the Fall?
Garlic 23 Jan, Anonymous (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Have read, plant in the shortest daylight hours and harvest in the longest hrs of sunlight.

You may want to do a soil test so you know what you have and what you don't. Using all that potting soil you may need some lime mix in there. If your organic is right out of the bag and not aged you just have to wait several yeas before it's broken down well.
Snow Peas (also Sugar Peas, Mangetout, Chinese Peas) 04 Jan, Fred R soto (USA - Zone 12a climate)
We love Chinese cuisine and have moved to Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. It is in Zone 12A. We e have cool nights (low 60F) and our patio has areas when it is never in full sun. Is it possible to grow snow peas here. I ask because we are not allowed to bring in seeds into the country and getting them from any source is as much as $50USD for even a packet of 20 to 50 seeds. Thanks in advance.

Plants need sunlight and generally plenty of it.
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 02 Jan, Allen (USA - Zone 7b climate)
Hi; I know what a sweet potato slip is but what the heck is a sweet potato crown? All I can find on the internet is recipes for cooking not planting.
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 08 Jan, Chris (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Crowns are the top sprouting part of a sweet potato. It should say slips too.
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 05 Jan, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
A slip should be 20 cm/8 in

Potato 26 Dec, nelg strebor (USA - Zone 5b climate)
I made sectional container and added 7" sections as growth poked through. Got to about 5' tall . when I unveiled it in latter fall there were very few potatoes. A lot of care for no result, any idea what happened?
Potato 05 Jan, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Probably too much N fertiliser. It is not about growing a tall plant. It is about growing a plant that produces a crop. A good amount of general fert before planting and hill the soil up around the pant when about 12 inches
Celeriac 25 Dec, Charles (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I'm in Port St John, have you found a variety that does better than others here?
Radish 23 Dec, Andres S Del Villar (USA - Zone 8b climate)
Hello, I have been growing vegetables here in Manteo, NC for the last 10 years, zone 8b. I believe your planting times are at least 30 days too early . I plant most of it by seed outdoors maybe and that may be the reason.
Radish 05 Jan, (Australia - temperate climate)
Read the paragraph at the bottom of the page. It is general advice, There could be many different sub climates within the same climate. Generally it is about soil temperature required for germination.
Tomato 14 Dec, DENNIS (USA - Zone 10a climate)
I'm looking for a large juicy tomato to just plain eat whole. Looking for a good producer. Can't seem to find a recommendation for my area!
Tomato 18 Dec, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Google big tomato varieties. Most crops will grow from cold weather to hot weather, just have to plant at the right time of year for your area.
