Gardeners have a differing set of olfactory nerve endings which interpret odours others cannot appreciate. That's my excuse anyway.

Try cutting a pop bottle into rings and put copper tape around them. It protects young foliage on vulnerable veg.

They're both poppies just different varieties.

Brush Cutter advice

Posted: 19/05/2016 at 16:05

Strimmer and brush cutters only jam if you're trying to cut too fast. You really have to go slowly and cut with the leading edge and not push forward too fast. Guards  are there for a reason, to protect the user. Taking one off is tempting fate too much.

Will my rose wake up?

Wakeshine if they're new roses they'll take a year to establish properly. They look fine to me too. Rose de rescht especially is slow to establish and rarely gets going until year 2-3. As Tetley has said, feed mulch and keep well watered in the first year.

Help with my heather !

The taller piece isn't dead Hattie, the growth has just gone to the top. You can cut heather back hard, BUT first you need to mound some ericaceous compost around the base. This will encourage new growth at the base. When that appears and starts poking through the compost you then cut it back. It takes a few weeks but with a bit of patience you can rejuvenate it.

What is happening to the foliage on these 2 fuscias

It actually looks like fuchsia rust. You can spray but opinion is divided on its effectiveness. Id be cautious and pick off the affected leaves, keep it well fed and watered .

I still can't load a photo using an android pad, don't know how to resize it. It's still very bright, too bright for me and I don't have sight issues. Is it me or am I alone?
