I've banned my OH from watching Rachel......she is far too pretty 

I'd like to see a programme with Christine on, she was educated at Myerscough college not far from me....which reminds me, I must pay their nursery a visit, it's meant to be fantastic  We need more Lancashire people on the telly box 

 

Argh, no......can't stand folks wot talks like that....... so loud & piercing.

On the other hand, Mr OL is oviously a man of taste......which is what I would expect, with a lovely wife like his.

I bet she'd be a fantastic dinner guest - she looks as if she'd be brilliant company 

The mind boggles!

Remember 'Christine's Garden' when she used swallow apple pies whole, from her neighbour Reg?....That's after she had scoffed half of the tomatoes from his greenhouse, plums from his trees & carrots from his garden.

Hence my saying 'Just don't leave your cake lying around!'

She has a real smile and twinkly eyes - far more attractive than 'ex model presenters' IMHO

Bev - probably a good thing you posted your potential problem here anyway, inasmuch as you will be wiser for the future.

As for now, it may be advisable to remove your damaged flowers to encourage the plant to produce more.

Bev, I'm not sure I've given you the right advice.

Since I replied to your query, I have enlarged you pics and have to say that the foliage seems to be healthy, which would rule out mildew.

The only damage I can see to the flowers seems to be weather related....so would appreciate other's opinions.

What is eating my tomato plants?!

Hi, Kerry....this is most probably the 'tomato caterpillar. It's totally green to blend in with the green fruits.

Hi, Roger...welcome to the forum.

Old wives tale? Not really, it's theoretically true. However, for me it's a waste of time & effort, given the difference it makes. It also has to be said that certain varieties don't produce flowers anyway.

PS. The black spots on your roses is a fungal disease too, called (surprise surprise) 'Rose Black Spot'.

I would suggest you remove the affect leaves and burn them and don't allow a build-up of affected leaves around the bushes.....it encourages the spoors to spread.

Interestingly, rose black spot has become more widespread since the air has become cleaner. In the old days when most people had coal fires, it was rare......this is because the sulphur in the air killed those spoors.
