Red Spider Mite

Posted: 21/05/2014 at 15:34

If you can see them with the naked eye and they are bright red, then they are not Red spider mites. They are generally too small to see and they are brown, not red. What you have is a large number of newly hatched 'blood spiders'. Nice useful things which grow up and eat greenfly etc.

Mites by the way have 10 legs whereas spiders of course have 8.

Is this a kind of Euphorbia ?

Yes, one of the weedier ones. I would remove it, as it soon seeds all over the place.

Sounds like one of the scale insects, oyster scale perhaps. They need to be removed with a brush and a soap based insecticide. The white is wax and it needs to be dissolved before the insecticide can get at the insect proper.

Geum 'Mrs Bradshaw' dead/dying - rescue?

Posted: 19/05/2014 at 21:17

I find all Geums prefer a cool position. It sounds like yours are in too hot a place.

Try taking them out and potting them up and placing in a  shady position and hope that they grow some new leaves.

Allium white tips - feeding?

Posted: 12/05/2014 at 16:24

The leaves on these generally have done their job by the time the flowers start. In the next few days'weeks they will die off completely.

There are Tulips which produce more than one flower per stem, T kauffmannia types do it. Having said that, 8 is a bit extreme.

Unless of course you live in an area where there are hard late frosts. In which case, while the plant lives, it never flowers as the new growth is killed by the frost. We have a few still around the garden and they have rarely flowered for us, as we get incredibly cold east winds which burn off the new stems almost every year. Even though they are planted in the most sheltered spot we have.

Give it a whirl though.
