Help needed!

Posted: 12/08/2015 at 00:01

Just found this thread....and caught up.

Never noticed the weather feature at the top of the page so have never used it. I use the bbc site for weather. Agree with the change of the tree icon to a camera one. Other than that don't have any problems on the site apart from the ones I create myself. eg. hitting the wrong button when in the middle of a long reply and losing the whole thing -very annoying!! 

Very White rose?

Iceberg - it is a very well known and popular rose for very good reasons - ease of care, good white colour, repeat flowering, disease resistance, comes in different forms....I love mine.

I have loads of Gatekeepers on my marjoram, a few large whites and an odd Holly Blue....but my buddelias have attracted nothing!

Wildlife Pond

Ok. I would empty as much water as possible into large containers by syphon. Place plants to be split, saved etc into buckets of the  water. Dig out preformed shape - old pond and move to one side (with lots of help!) Then return water to pond to a depth to keep your plants happy - if you want...

Then start digging - go as big as you can. Ponds appear to shrink in size once you put in the water and the plants!!

Look forward to seeing th pics

What plant is this

I sent pictures to the RHS and they have diagnosed Verticillum Wilt - not good but at least I know what it is!

I agree with Tetley but would like to see a flower to confirm.
