powdery mildew?

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 23:18

I was going to say leave the disease free ones, then I read this from the RHS

http://apps.rhs.org.uk/AdviceSearch/profile.aspx?PID=743#section3  , which sounds pretty serious, but they don't really give the answer. Leave the carrots, not the same family.

BLACKSPOTS

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 23:12

You need to spray them with something like Fungus Clear which you can buy in a garden centre. Some roses are more prone to black spot than others and it is catching. If the rose is well fed and watered it is more resistant to disease. They should be sprayed fairly early, after the leaves come out. Not always easy when it keeps raining. I water my roses at the roots too. The diseased leaves should be put on the bonfire or thrown away, not on the compost heap.

We went to the RHS garden, Rosemoor, in Devon last year. The rose gardener told me that they only plant disease resistant roses there.

My poor lawn :(

I think it needs feeding. It seems to be greener round the dog urine bare patches so the urine has acted as fertiliser. Perhaps you have rather poor soil. Lawns need feeding every spring and again with a lower dose early autumn.

What a lovely little visitor, Fairygirl, a nice surprise.

I will be having my son here soon as he will be having his knee operated on soon and his wife will be at work. Luckily they don't live too far away. He will need taking to physiotherapy.

Help identifying plants

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 17:57

It has probably produced suckers and the white one is growing from the wild rose root below the graft. Suckers should be pulled off when young or cut off. They will weaken the plant.

It will probably take longer than you think to upload. I thought it didn't work because I didn't wait long enough for it.

Designing a Garden Centre from scratch

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 17:51

But Jontydoggle had that idea on the previous page. I think it's a great idea.

I would like a good choice of healthy plants at reasonable prices, tools, equipement, fertilisers, weedkillers etc a good coffee shop and a nice clean loo.

What is this?

Sorry, don't know. But photos are a bit small and don't enlarge when clicked on. I've replied to push you up to the beginning - someone may have an idea.
