grow garlic

Why does the garlic in my garden have little bulbs growing inside the stem and breaking out of the stem as the cluster gets bigger? What do I do with them? Will they keep until fall planting?. I picked all my garlic today and the bulbs underground are a really nice size.

Can I put my container tomato plants in the garage and/or a greenhouse?

We've had so much rain lately, my container tomato plants are developing blossom end rot. I put them in the garage 6/17/19 night to keep them out of the rain one more day, but am not sure how long they can stay in there to dry out. The downside is, there is no sun in there. The pots have drainage holes, but they haven't had a chance to dry out in weeks! Secondarily, I was thinking of moving them to a pop-up greenhouse in my backyard to protect them from too much rain in the future, but would still allow them plenty of sun. Is this safe for them? Will their leaves burn? I appreciate your assistance. This is my first year growing tomato container plants and I just don't want to lose them!

Dividing jasmine?

I bought a small jasmine in California 15 years ago, and it is now a monster. I have transplanted it 4 times into bigger and bigger container so I can overwinter in the greenhouse. I was wondering if I could cut it in half at the root, or if that would kill it.

Just moved Florida the local county extension offered a lot of free courses. I wonder if you do and if there's a class calendar I could see or any information at all you could give, I'd appreciate it so much.

Calla Lily isnt doing well

I bought these 2 beautiful calla lilies. Within about a week they began to get mushy at the stems and blooms. I repotted them with fresh dirt, they had tons of roots so it was time to go to a bigger pot for sure. I really dont want to loose these. I have them outside in a bright shade area and moved them to more sun this week. Please help.
