What ate my leucanthemum flowers?

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 21:18

We had a fine collection of the newer varieties of these, like Freaky and Banana Cream and others, the molluscs ate them down to nothing almost over night and so they died (the plants as well as the molluscs). So that is what could be eating your flowers. Persevere? that depends on how much you like them. We are going to replace ours when we find the plants on sale again.

What to do with downy and powdery mildew patch?

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 15:45

Reading up on Mildews, the book says that they are definitely species specific. So the one attacking your cucurbits will not attack any other plants. That is not to say that the conditions which allowed it to grow, will not allow another form to attack something else on the site.

What is wrong with my apple tree leaves?

potato scab

Posted: 13/08/2014 at 18:10

The only thing is that scab normally affects the outside of the potato and is a sign of too much lime in the soil. The holes are keel slugs and they are definitely impossible to control.

The other thing about too limy a soil is that it tends to lock up some of the trace elements and lack of them can cause brown veining inside the potato.

What is wrong with my apple tree leaves?

I am surprised in some ways that the apples are perfect, magnesium deficiency goes hand in hand with Bitter pit (Calcium deficiency). Still, how much is more difficult, Never had to use it myself. The recommended dose as a foliage feed is 1 tablespoon to one gallon of water for each foot in height of the tree. Work that one out!

I would also suggest that you test the pH of your soil as that can effect the uptake of trace elements from the soil.

Best of luck!

Broad bean burn?

The beans like that in the fields around us are destined to make flour which is used in Saudi Arabia. They are Fava beans I think.

I reckon you are looking at a trace element deficiency there. Look up Magnesium deficiency in Apples and see if that matches.
