Star Jasmine with red leaves???

Posted: 20/05/2012 at 22:16

Hi all.. been in the garden for the first time in ages and been sorting plants.. plants & acers looking dead due to to vine weevil but the most confusing is my star jasmine.. its leaves turned red over winter and are still red?!  What can cause this?

Looks like the above also effected..   I think i'll have to deal with this the weekend... then might plant them all in the ground and see if they improve!

Hi all.. have lost a pot of primrose already and now a second is going.  Noticed this one earlier and have washed off the soil and repotted and hope that i got the little devils out!  I brought the plants at great expense and the seeds aren't cheap (and i can never seem to grow them!!!) 

My question is.. 1) whats the best thing to use at this time of the year to kill the grubs.. and 2) Do primroses suffer as much when planted in the ground and not a pot?

Thanks all!
