I've just taken some photos in the rain in my garden,
I love the Hostas when they go this lovely buttery colour,
This is a Acer palmatum disectum just changing colour, sorry about the spelling.
the Virginia creepers in the other postings are wonderful.
This is a acer in my friends garden yesterday,
Loana did you see Fridays GW, Montys greenhouse was nicely wrapped up with bubble wrap.
You can get bubble wrap at most garden centres , the one I go to sells both large bubbles and small but the large is better.
it sells for about £1.50a meter and if you are careful you can use the same pieces year on year.
its well worth the effort, I use a electric heater with it set just above frost and it works ok.
This is my greenhouse wrapped for the winter.
It looks like some kind of sorbus.
I leave my Hostas in their pots but I do put the in a sheltered spot for the winter, this is to protect the pot as much has the Hosta. I'm not sure how frost free the pots are .
In the spring just as the new growth is showing I repot and devide as needed.
it might be a good idea to treat the pots for vine weevil now before you tuck them up for winter.
Could it be worm casts ?
a picture would help.
You are clever nut, I've looked at gall mite and I think you are correct, thanks 😆
something's wrong with my hardy fuchsia ,
it should look like this,,
but it looks like this...
most of the plant looks like this, what's happening and any ideas what I should do ?
I take cuttings but also with the large plants when I lift them for the winter I knock as much soil off them, without damaging them as I can and then hang them upside down with garden twine in the shed. They completely dry off then in early spring you hopefully should see very fine roots appearing then you pot them up, don't wait do it has soon as you see this happening.
Don't forget to put a label on has to which colour they are.
you may loose a few but they haven't took up soil or much space.
