    Re: Are these ready for the garden?

    Peer reviewed, published studies are preponderantly meaningful science. Since drought is a major agricultural problem in many parts of the world, I would be truly delighted if all it needs is an aspirin.

    Of course, we all said that 4 decades ago about a daily aspirin dramatically reducing cardio-vascular risk. Sometimes the magic works.

    Much to my surprise, a few of my plants are starting to bud. What is the best bet for commercially available bags? Paint strainers?

    Paint strainers are the easiest. If anyone on the forum had time and inclination to sew some bags I know I need like 20 myself. I'll probably be getting mine at Amazon though, cheapest place I've seen at about a dollar a bag

    Here's a Little Dutch flower head. What size strainer bag do I need, and how do I secure it? Most of the bags I've seen have elastic bands that are designed to fit snugly on a 1 or 5 gallon can...

    5 gallon. Seems silly when you first put the big bag on but then it makes sense by the time it fills it up.

    Like Smokes said... 5 gallon. I use the equivalent size Organza bag. Just secure with a string. Make sure to remove the leaves around the bud and it helps a lot if you spray the bud with some Spinosad (or equivalent) to prevent bud worms from destroying your seeds.

    Thanks! I will grab some insecticide while I'm at the garden store.
    When is the appropriate time to top plants that I don't want to flower?

    Little Dutch puts out a seed head that is as large as any other tobacco variety. The 5 gallon bag will seem small, once the pods begin to fill it.

    I really like the look of those long thin leaves! Might have to add that next year.
