Garden tree wash

The Vitax Winter Wash does not list any ingredients on the bottle. BUT it does claim to be made from natural oils and surfactants (soap to most people).

Just ordered some , but not from Amazon itself via the Amazon site. Not mad keen on using insecticides, but the Auriculas are a bit expensive to replace and VERY prone to infection even when using a non-peat based compost.


Gave up on Heuchera a few years back. Just about given up on my beloved Geums too.


The sooner this fungus which kills the grubs becomes readily available the better. On sale now to professionals, but only in large amounts and with a short shelf life after opening.

How very odd, when I looked for it I found that it was not available. There was talk of banning it as the active ingredient, even in the new stuff, is deadly to bees. Even the pollen of treated plants is bad for them.


Thanks. My Auriculas will be grateful to you!

Cloudy here too, but did get some shots.



That was a couple of days ago.



As it appeared over the hedge.



Atmospheric!



Still obscured by thin cloud.

If you go to Amazon it says that Provado is currently unavailable. None of our local gardening outlets have it on their shelves either. You may be able to buy it from non-EU outlets and import it.
