    Grow your garlic in pots, you don't want that stuff invading the garden!
    If you can't beat it, laugh at it

If cannabis wasn't so easy to clone..I'm thinking that would have possibly been the go to method for them too.
    Just found out what air layering is. That sounds prettt slick. I would like to plant a rose bush this year and have zero experience. Any varieties to avoid or any you think are must have? I'm in zone 5

    It's not as bad as bamboo. Garlic just spreads rapidly.

    Yeah, it's really a great way to clone..keeping the branch connected to the plant throughout the whole process as the roots start growing, ready in about a month for you to chop and stick straight into the ground/pot with a fantastic and established root system..so rewarding

    Ok so here are a few that I would recommend to anyone who is after exceptional fragrance, mid to high disease resistance

    Mr Lincoln - Hybrid Tea - My favourite and in my opinion (and many others) the most beautiful and strongest fragrant red rose in the world. As a bonus..she (all roses are 'she's' to me despite the name lol) grows very vigorously and is fantastic for cut flowers when you want to bring them indoors or as a gift, a truly beautiful rose.

    Papa Meilland - Hybrid Tea - Another red rose, Repeat flowering, semi-glossy foliage with a beautifully strong fragrance. Only negative being is she can grow a little 'wild' and weak so not the best to look at if you are not shaping her yearly.

    Special Anniversary - Hybrid Tea - Vibrantly pink rose with exceptionally glossy leaves, very strong flowering and has an exceptional fragrance which can travel throughout your garden, slightly spicy with a hint of vanilla!..beautiful.

    Chandos Beauty - Hybrid Tea - Peachy apricot blooms with a fragrance that will literally knock your socks off..she's a current contender as my favourite rose right now, nipping at the heels of Mr Lincoln..very healthy growth, semi-glossy leaves and if that wasn't enough, when in bloom and she opens fully..she will last for days without discolouring, truly outstanding.

    There are many more, but these recommendations will have you popping out into your garden every chance you can get for a cheeky whiff

    I was just chewing over what to have in the garden this year...

    Strawberries & Olives are already there... & Mrs M_C wants a cucumber

    I'm planning on doing a tumbler tomato in a hanging basket (watch this space!) & some chillies would be nice too
