It may well be, Inglezinho ...For me, I think uploading them from an external site (something like Photobucket) is the most reliable.

Yes I did indeed, OL.....sorry I didn't comment on it. Normally we only achieve shots like that on mornings following a haw frost, don't we?

Thanks, OL....just thought a bit of fine-weather cloud added a bit of interest.

Growing Sweet Peas

I've copied this for you from the Eagle website:

"This is the white powder that is seen on the plants (see photo at right). This can be kept at bay by spraying the plants with a product called 'Systhane' which is available from most good garden centres. We spray in anticipation from early June, and continue once a month for the rest of the flowering season. Dry conditions and lack of air circulation (plants too close together) can cause this problem. Dry conditions can be sorted by watering the foliage regularly."

.....prolly a little late for this year, but worth remembering for future years.

When to divide?

Hi, AV

You can divide them in autumn (ground conditions permitting) or spring.

Rosemummy.......the 'white powdery covering' is mildew....this is another sign that they were planted too closely. It prevents air circulating freely between plants and thus provides an ideal habitat for the mildew spoors to grow.

Rosemummy, of course I would have wanted you to have the best sweet peas ever.....Truth is, I haven't a clue about the early demise of yours, it could be lots of different reasons.

Love those Gazania, flumpy.  Mine have been ravaged by leaf miners this year.
