Leaf cutting bee help URGENT

Posted: 20/07/2013 at 12:02

Just started to prick out some very valuable seedlings, in desperate need of doing. Found that a leaf cutting bee has filled the pot with grubs all neatly wrapped in leaves. What can I do? I do not want to kill them but we are talking a lot of money here, if I can get these seedlings to selling size.

Try scratching the bark on one of the thinner brancjes, If tit is still green under the bark then the tree is still alive and may eventually recover. If not then ..................sorry.

Talkback: Gardening makes you happy

Posted: 19/07/2013 at 12:41

What you like doing is what makes you happy. Gardening to a large extent is outside housework. Grass cutting=vacuum cleaning; weeding =- dusting and so on. Who would claim that housework makes one happy except for some of these people with OCD or close to it?

Being out side is a pleasure, but gardening?........................not so sure myself.

 

And before you jump on me if there was a thingy for tongue in cheek I would use it!

It has the appearance of Ruscus aculeatus, aka Butcher's Broom to me. Does it get red berries?

Another whinge, this time about sticky labels. I bought some nice plastic pots for my Auricula theatre plants. Great except that one out of each set of 5 is vitually useless because of the label. Even with a dab of Turps, the pot still has a mark on it. Totally unnecessary too!
