Marmande tomatoes

At least you got some, not one of the 12 seeds in the packet was actually Marmande. Sadly we cannot remember whose seeds they were.

Japanese Anemone

Deep is the word. I follwed them down in one part of the garden to over a metre. And still they come up!

And you are likely to end up with the dratted stuff in both places!

Bit early for coum to be showing that much leaf. If not hederifolium then it just about could be C. persicum.

Not only is it a cyclamen, it looks like Cyclamen hederifolium too!

Plum Fruit Moth?

Posted: 30/08/2013 at 13:07

If the grub is white then it is more likely to be Plum sawfly than Plum moth. Just as bad though. As FB says they are nothing to do with aphids.

All you can do is to spray with a suitable insecticide about a week after the petals have fallen from the flowers.

Sadly they whate being moved. They would die. Cuttings are so easy, that the professionals take a bundle of material, roll them up in tape and put them all in to root together.

The fruit is poisonous, containing amongst other substances, the alkaloids theobromine and caffeine, as well as an extremely bitter terpene. Poisonings are more common in young children, who are enticed by the brightly-coloured fruits. Ingestion can result in liver and kidney damage and even death. and the seeds ripen from September to November. The seeds are eaten by frugivorous birds, which digest the fleshy seed coat and disperse the seeds in their droppings. All parts of the plants are poisonous to humans if eaten.

Mind you Cornus is a pretty difficult weed to get rid of, though not on the Bindweed/Knotweed class. Every little bit of root left in will grow into a new shrub, pretty quickly too.
