 Had a visit from this little fellow this morning.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning, Forkers.....was going to start a thread about this, then thought 'maybe not' on a gardening forum. So I hope you don't mind me using 'Forkers'  to express my sadness at the news that Robin Williams is dead.....not only dead, but seemingly taken his own life due to depression.

Maybe not to everyone's taste, but he was one of the few people who could induce me into real belly laughs.

RIP, Robin...thanks for the laughs.

Whew!

Glad it's been sorted, Pansy......I'll have to reread your post after I wake up to understand what actually happened.

Help please.

Oh thanks, Dove

Looks like an echevaria. Needs to be frost free in the winter. Keep on the dry ish side.

I've got a new butterfly

I've seen them in the shops, on a piece of bendy wire and flutter in the breeze.

victoria plum tree HELP with MAGGOTS!!!

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 20:48

Hi, cuggles

This will be the maggots of the plumb codling moth and sadly there isn't much that can be done to save this year's fruit....it's been quite a bad year for it, btw.

To help for next year's crop, spray with winter tar oil wash when the tree is totally dormant....say late December, this will kill eggs & larvae hiding in the nooks & crannies of the bark. Also  wrap a grease-band around the trunk about 18" above the base.

Help please.
