Eating our Skimmea

Posted: 09/07/2014 at 11:46

Morning all from gusty Norfolk,,OK im putting 2 pics up to show the 2year old Skimmea, because of little growth and leaves being eaten i changed the soil JIN no3 and have fed both Male/female plants,one is ok one is really poor ,last night in the dark i checked twice for snails and slugs and found only one snail on the soil now dispatched,i sprayed 2 weeks ago with wash up liq and garlic which i use to good effect sometimes ,but this time to no avail, the plant is being eaten by i dont know what ,theirs no snail tracks or mess of any kind on the plants, im stumped, perhaps a complete inspection of roots and all or burn, any ideas anyone

many thanks Alan

cutting back tree branches

Posted: 08/07/2014 at 20:29

Hi Janey29,  i have looked at your problem on the net for any rights you may have to get the neighbors to do or pay for the job however no good news ,the site i last looked at was (( Problem neighbors )) i know they are not a problem but got this advice  

 If you choose to cut down overhanging branches, or trim trees, you will have to pay for the cost of doing so yourself. Try speaking to your neighbour however as you may be able to reach some sort of agreement in relation to any gardening work required, though they are not obliged to contribute to this cost. Note that you are not entitled to access to your neighbour's property to enable you trim the branches on your side of the boundary without their permission. Not a lot of good sorry

aldi fig tree

Posted: 08/07/2014 at 18:03

Hi Invicta2, the snail attack is bad news, its strange that iv not had a single problem with anything on the figs, i came to the conclusion that snails and slugs dont like figs and maybe it was the aroma figs give off which if you have one indoors is rather strong, or maybe it was the spray iv used, I blended a whole head of garlic and bottled it in a coke bottle with water to the lower neck,,after a week i diluted some  10 to 1 into a pint,and added a tiny nip of washing up liquid, i used this spray sparingly  every other day in a fine mist, i did have to reduce a leaf or two on the smaller figs as sometimes the leaves get a bit to big and heavy for them in the early stages, I just cut half the leaf away then later as they grow stronger they drop that leaf,   good luck all
