Ants on peony flower buds?

Posted: 22/05/2012 at 12:29

thank you figrat for the thread. I have read the comments about the ants helping the poeny bloom. Thinking back over the years, I don't recall the peony blossom being damaged by the ants, I just assumed I had been successful in stopping them damage the plant by their nibbling. I feel a bit guilty now.  LeadFarmer maybe we should leave the ants to do their work and enjoy the blossoms when they arrive.

Beware, I have suffered with ants eating the buds on my peony for the last two years: You will notice little round nibbled areas on the new buds. I have resorted to quishing the ants every time I pass by my peony. Don't leave them alone - your flowers will be destroyed.

Talkback: Dog urine on lawns

The best method, which has no harmful side effects to dogs, is to pour copious amounts of water on the wee patch as soon as's a labour of love really, but since my husband loves his lawns, it's worth it.

I am afraid my red geraniums have been knibbled by snails...I thought the smell of geraniums put snails off the plants, but sadly no.
