Leaf cutting bee help URGENT

Posted: 20/07/2013 at 13:56

The cylinders with the grubs in are sealed so I assume that no further action is needed  by the parent bee? If that is so then replanting(?) the cylinders in  another pot and putting it back where it came from is what I have had to do. Never had this before in seed pots.

How can I get rid of this?

Oh dear, that is Oxalis cornuta, a real nuisnce. The roots are covered in tiny blubs which break off if you dig it up and then you have even more. The seed explodes out of the seed pod and you soon have more. Roundup will kill it and one of those Flame gun/Weed wands is very satisfying to use on it. Long term job though. Sorry.

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!
