Silverbeet (also Swiss Chard or Mangold) 30 May, Trish (New Zealand - temperate climate)
Hi, I have no issue growing spinach, but I haven't been able to grow silverbeet for a long time now. Any ideas please? Also, can I dig my fresh lambs pellets from the farm into my garden?
Leeks 29 May, Dave (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I have stopped trying to grow ordinary leeks and now grow perpetual ones. They absolutely thrive in our subtropical garden and continually keep making side shoots so I never have to plant seeds. I thoroughly recommend them for people if they want to set and forget
Celery 28 May, Pete (Australia - temperate climate)
I have been growing celery for a few years. I always blanch the Celery for about 2 weeks using a piece of downpipe. When I harvest the Celery it looks terrific. Store it in the crisper in a plastic bag with a paper towel. After about 2 weeks it turns all mushy. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?. Thanks in advance. Pete.

Rosella (also Queensland Jam Plant, Roselle) 24 May, Iman (Canada - Zone 6b Temperate Warm Summer climate)
Does roselle grow in Edmonton as a perennial or annual?
Rosella (also Queensland Jam Plant, Roselle) 25 May, Liz (New Zealand - sub-tropical climate)
Winter in Edmonton would be too cold for Roselle to survive, so treat it as an annual.
Garlic 20 May, Rich (USA - Zone 8a climate)
If you planted your garlic in early November it should be up now in mid-May. I'm in 6B and mine broke ground in March and April. One thing that will slow it down is if you have a lot of light-colored mulch. That reflects the sunlight so the soil stays cold. If that's the case scrape it back and see what happens. Also if mulch is too thick straw the soil may be too soggy for garlic, although garlic does like quite a lot of water. But not sogginess.

Why are my small chokos going brown on bottom and dropping off,
Choko/Chayote (also Chayote squash, christophene, chouchou, mirliton) 13 May, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Spread some epsom salts around the root base and water in. It could be blossom end rot. Happens in tomatoes - maybe chokes also. I good hand full or two in a bucket or two of water and spread evenly.
