Poorly Plum Tree

Can't open your pics, Jemma.....but feel fairly sure from your description that your plum tree is being attacked by plum aphids, difficult to see because they are inside the rolled-up leaves.

I agree with yarrow, OL.....the one on the left of the pic will be the trailer.

Thinner stems & smaller leaves.

Treatment advice for mould/mildew on scabious

LPetal, it seems you've done all the right things without spaying, but really, using a spray such as Myclobutanil is your best option.

Bugs....what is munching my brassicas??

Bug killer will work, but so will removing the critters by hand. You can see the eggs they are the little green dots next to the caterpillars. Whichever you feel happiest doing OL.

 

Sorry, scroggin.......those 'little green dots' are caterpillar faeces. The eggs are usually laid under the leaves in clusters and are yellow.

I once has 2 fish, they were called Joe and Bob and OH won them for me at the fair when we were 17.....they both died and went on the big swim down the toilet

 

That's really, really boring!

Quote from Hostafan: "I was unsure at first if I'd " fit in" but I hope my contributions have , on the  whole , been seen as well meant and good humoured."

Hostafan, for me you're an irreplaceable cog in this machine.

OL - If you were writing about the price of fish, I would still love reading it and don't minimise your own hard work in your garden.
