Re: A question about horseradish

I dig mine and keep it in the refrigerator in one of those "keep produce fresh" bags. They keep forever. Then I grind it one root at a time and use it like that.

Re: Hibernating a basjoo

I've been doing the same thing for years. I just don't mulch thickly over them though. I just let the stalks die down and mulch themselves.

Re: Dwarf Namwah oddly tall this year

wow yours really does look like my namwah, but mine isn't getting taller this year. Probably because it's in a very large pot.

Re: Male bud: to cut or not to cut?
