I get that stuff on my tarmac ! As a previous contributor said its slime mould and disappears in drier weather.
Just bought a couple of young delphiniums from the GC. They are about 2 inches in height and have about 4 small leaves.
Is it better to overwinter these in pots or plant them now in the garden ? Are there still slugs about as they love delphiniums ?
Yes, like that .
Have pulled a couple and will eat them tonight, they certainly look fine to eat !.
I'm not worried it would be ice to know why this happens !
The 'fronds' of the carrot seem to have burned as if they have been in the sun and dried out.
I don't think its gone to seed.
My carrots have grown well and are now nearly ready.
I've noticed that the 'leaves' of some of the carrots are slightly frazzled ... has anybody any ideas why ?
Its called a 'Shield' insect and is harmless ... I have loads in my garden !
Almost certainly slugs.
Best thing is to cover the seeds with fleece, making certain the slugs can't get underneath the fleece !
Works every time !
Fair enough .. leaves look OK though !
Mind you I don't even know the variety ... could be one of these massive ones ... so I'll take your advice and plant it in the garden !
We have a lilac planted in a pot whicjh is now about 5 years old.
Each year it has a single white bloom (panicle ?)
It hasn't been repotted and stands in a sunny spot.
How can I encourage it to bloom ?
I buried them about 4 weeks ago.
I'll leave the top showing and see what happens !
