Id and help with leaf problem

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 16:11

Looks like a very spindly snapdragon that could have done with being pinched out and planted in the garden. I grew snapdragons from seed last year, 2 different sorts, and quite a lot have survived the winter - it was mild though. I cut off the old growth last month and they have made new growth.

Mine is not nearly as flowery as usual and I'm in SW France, but the cherries and greengages were great. Also orchards near here looked a bit sparse too.

Been to supermarket. Still raining.

Cider is fizzy so I suppose that's out too Clari. Gluten intolerance seems to be getting more and more common. I wonder why.

Going to lunch with friend tomorrow, doing pud, have lots of lemons. Lemon tart or lemon drizzle??

Looks a lovely place GG.

Direct sow seeds

Sow into the soil. Easiest if you sow in a pattern you will recognise afterwards, like straight lines or noughts and crosses so you will know which are seeds and which are weeds.

I've never heard of soft fruit cordons. Would be interested to know too.

Truly evil weevil

Could it be something bigger than that, like voles? They live in tunnels underground and don't have hills like moles.

Dying sumac?

It sounds as though it may have reached the end of it's life. But it may grow another tree from a sucker.

Twigs from lidl.....what are they?

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 10:13

They could be willow. It roots very easily. Have a look at this link  http://rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=588  you can make arbours etc with it.

Lupines leaves seem to be dying

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 10:11

It should be OK if new leaves are coming through, probably just the shock of being moved. Lupins can be fussy about being moved. You did water it didn't you? Also watch out for slugs and snails.
