Aphids particularly bad this year?

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 16:22

My garden is really infested with them they have killed a few nasturtium seedlings that germinated, my cestrum tomentosum is covered top to bottom in them and they are all over my Californian poppy seedlings. Sprayed them all with soapy water that seems to have done the trick but am going to keep a good eye on them. Something's eating my clematis leaves and stems on the young ones and cant figure out what it is also.

Propagators

Propagator will speed up germination but they are not absolutely necessary. I would sow sweet peas direct in the soil now however.

will my new four tier plastic greenhouse work same as a glass one?

Dahlia and last frost dates

Yeah I don't want to be lulled into a false sense of security with the temps I may shove them in my mini greenhouse is a couple of weeks.

Dahlia and last frost dates

I have a lot of dahlia tubers in my house at the minute the last frost date is the 2nd week of may for my area. Will they be protected enough in a cold frame, mini greenhouse if I put them in the start of may. I grew a lot last year but had room to keep them all indoors but at the moment it is getting like a bit of jungle in here.

My transplanted Rose is wilting - Help

Posted: 19/04/2014 at 22:23

I would give it a really long watering to thoroughly water it in. Sometimes roses sulk when they are transplanted as they are growing. It hasn't rained for a while where I am so maybe its compounded they the fact the soil is dry.
