Tha k you very much staffs ages and Dave Morgan. I did find one red beetle no spots never found any more They have really made a mess of the lillies great holes in most of the buds. I do not use pesticides as I have a dog who loves the garden so I am very careful what I use in the garden. I think I will get rid of the ones I have and start again next year when I will be more aware of the lily beetle.

My garden lilies have not done very well this year. I have been told that they seem to have been attacked by the lily beetle. How do I deal with this problem.

Double trailing Petunias

I have planted up double trailing Petunias and when watering I notice brown leaves and the plant looks as though it is dying. I have been taking them off the plants when de heading and I am not sure if I am doing the right thing. I seem to have a gap now in my hanging basket. Pleas has anyone got any advice for me.

regards Benita2

Thank you Figetbones, I will do that. Do you think I ought to scrap the mother plant or will it recover. I have nearly always  bought bedding plants, but finding it is hard work. I have been substituting them for shrubs and bulbs. Have you any recommendations on what would say look good late autumn and not to much work 

Thank very much

Hello Everyone

I have had this Dianthus plant for two years now and this year it has not flowered.

There is lots of foliage, can  the individual ones be taken from the main plant and rooted in pots or should I dispose of it and by a new one. I really would like to save it as it is smells beautiful.

I will be grateful for any suggestions offered

Sweet Peas

Posted: 10/07/2014 at 15:50

I have grown my sweet peas from seed . I planted them out to grow up a long tall frame. They look healthy etc but some seem to be dwarf and some have grown upwards no trouble at all. I think I may have got a packet of mixed seed, is this possible. If I take out the dwarf ones will I be able to plant them up in another pot or am I dreaming .  The dwarf ones have started flowering.

Hope some one can help. 

Thank You.

Thanks  Fleurisa. I have thought about that as I have spent a lot of money on plants. They finally got planning permission to build on the allotments that use to be, after a forty year battle, we won every time,  except this time the House of Lords overturned the council.
