Sorry Aym, bit busy at the moment. Getting plants ready for Sunday and I have an idea for another story which desperately needs writing before it drives me mental. After Sunday I may have more time to take the camera for walkies.

Flowers on that are about the same size as a 10 pence coin. Not sure if that one would survive outside in a cold part of the world as it comes from South Africa. Certainly would need a very well drained sunny spot.

Oh and by the way, the ones I split and repotted have all flowered in the pots and grown lots and lots of new roots.


Iris seedlings look like wide bladed grass.

And if this is a new tree I would take it back to the vendor and complain. They should not be selling a tree which is infected with this.

Sooty5: I need to borrow your garden when people come for viewing. LOL! It will add at least 2-3 grand to the asking price!


See original post

 A few years back now we had our house valued with a view to moving out. The Agent said "Oh a typical farm workers cottage, you would get so much for it."  then he walked around the garden and added another £16,000 for the plants etc. Of course, he then, went and spoiled it by saying that we would find it easier to sell if we returned it all to grass and put a stable on it and sold as paddock.

Don't off hand know what the leaf problem is, not got my books out at present,, but I can tell you that Copper sulphate (if you can get it) is as safe a fungicide as there is. It will not harm the tree.
