Red Spider Mite

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.

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.
