Greenfly in my greenhouse!

Posted: 10/05/2014 at 20:48

Spotted green fly in my greenhouse, attacking my dahlias. Not happy. Just blasted them with soapy water.

This is in my neighbours garden flowering now, can anyone please identify it :)

Yes definitely potato vine. I put a photo of mine on garden gallery yesterday.

Post a new picture once its established. Would be interested to see you new planting.

What am I?

Definitely aqualegia. They are very promiscuous so you will find they self seed easily. Very easy to keep, very little care required. I have several colours, yellow,  pink, blue, purple.  Couldn't tell you what varieties though. I know I have Nora Barlow.

Great piccies as usual. I love this thread.

Problem with strawberry plants

You could try them in hanging baskets. They need to be somewhere the pollinating insects can get to them too.  They may have got a bit hot and scorched the leaves.

Yes I think you are right. I now have around 10 different clematis,  some of which only went in last autumn so can't wait to see what they all look like. I have a lovely double headed lilac/purple one with lots of buds on it. Will take a picture of it when it comes into flower.

Just catching up, some lovely photos of everyone's gardens.  Here's a couple of mine this week.

Wigeila I beleive

Lots of aquilegia in flower, spirea in the background

Clematis, not sure which one though?

Looking forward to this beautiful clematis, did not flower last year at all.

Potato vine.

Not as impressive as some, but work in progress all the same.
