The fruit is still edible once peeled, as long as the marks have not penetrated too far.

ID please

Could well be Physocarpus opulifolius Diabolo or Lady in Red.

Vine Weevil?

The Old compost contained an organo-phosphate poison called Suscon Green (rather nasty stuff for humans.) The new thing is a fungus which works in much the same way as the nematodes.

Well, it becomes needful for someone to do it. I found an adult in my Alpine house last night walking all over the collection of Saxifrages (along with half a dozen slugs).


There is a possibility that a compost will be on sale soon which contains a fungus which attacks and kills the larva. It is already available in the Netherlands. The fungus itself is available to Nursery persons here, but how many use it I do not know.

Please help me identify this

Now I reckon that that was a Phytolaca americana plant.

I would go out at night with a torch and see if I could catch them at work.  No help with the already laid eggs, but it does stop them laying any more.

Still think the yellow one is one of the forms of Anthemis tinctoria.

Second one is Chaenomeles japonica, or Quince. the fruits are edible when properly ripe, but they do need cooking as they are very hard.


First one looks like the seed heads of Hypericum species, possibly Hidcote as being the most frequently planted.
