Stellar cherry fan trained

Posted: 26/06/2014 at 10:55

Agree with ChrissieB here. We had the same problem with our Morello Cherry until I gave it a good spraying in late Winter before the leaves appeared with a Winter Wash (Soft horticultural soap preparation).

Our Stella has done far better with another set of Cherry trees near by. However it still does not stop the birds from taking the fruit when they are still white!

Narcissus fly

Sadly there is no treatment available to the amateur. Our garden is riddled with it too and we have gradually lost most of our Narcissus to it. It also attacks Snowdrops too by the way.

We have replaced ours with various species Tulips.

The seeds are black when they are ripe and that is the time to sow. Mine are still green so not ready yet.

Day Lily bud problem

Definitely sounds like it. Look very closely inside the bud and you may see tiny white crawling things. There is no cure. Sometimes you can stop it by removing every flower bud for a season, but what is the point? We have had to stop growing these plants because of it.
