Sweet corn (also corn,maize) 25 May, Renee Bowman (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Something is eating my corn stalks leaves leaving holes in them and inside center of stalks looks like wet corn meal or mash can it still be salvaged and what could be causing this? How do I prevent and stop this infestation?
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.

Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 02 May, Carolyn (USA - Zone 8a climate)
A friend of mine gave me some sweet potato plants rooted and planted in soil before last winter. She told me to keep them and water occasionally and plant in April/May in North Texas. These little plants are about 6" high with multiple shoots from a center stalk. Do I plant the whole plant in a pot or cut off the shoots and plant? Confused? Thank you.
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 08 May, (Australia - temperate climate)
You can do both. More plants if you break it up into a few.

What is the difference between planting it in trays and sowing it
Capsicum (also Bell peppers, Sweet peppers) 08 May, Anonymous (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
A tray probably means a seedling tray. To sow is straight into the soil.
