Winter Dip

Posted: 24/10/2013 at 16:59

Thank you Brumbull. I have had to destroy a few plants which was just awful. I have got a Mrs Popple and I have only seen it on a few stems, I have had that plant since 1997. I have Googled it and found out that very cold weather can destroy the bug so I am hoping Mrs Popple will be ok as it is hardy and I leave it outside in the winter. I am still going to use your hot dip though.

This sounds a great idea Brumbull. I have quite a lot of Fuchsias and I noticed that a couple had got Fuchsia Gall Mite quite badly. I am going to use  your method with Jeyes Fluid. I also use Jeyes Fluid to spray around the garden, it keeps the cats out they seem to hate the smell.

Salvia Hot lips

Posted: 08/10/2013 at 18:46

I have a Salvia Hot Lips and mine is in the ground, I've had it for 3 years. I bought it at the Eden Project in Cornwall. I cut it back every Spring then just leave it to do its job. It is still flowering now. If I were you, I would get it out of the pot and plant it in the ground then just sit back and enjoy.

Talkback: Autumn harvests

This has been the first time I have grown marrows and they have grown so well, I only put two plants in. We have eaten some of them and with one I have made marrow and ginger jam. Never done that before either but it is delicious. I have got a bumper crop of tomatoes too so I am going to have a go at making tomato chutney.

Fuchsias

Hi sheila, here is a link to a Fuchsia site and it should give you all the info you need for Fuchsias. I love my Fuchsias' but had to dispose of a few as they got Fuchsia Gall Mite, the Fuchsias' I still have  seem to be free of this nasty disease, thank goodness.

I always read the "what to do now" and quite often watch the videa clips. I don;t listen to Gardeners Question Time but I do listen to Radio Solents The Good Life which is a gardening show on a Sunday.

Cats

I don't have any pets and would never throw stones at the furry purries. I use Jeyes fluid too, this seems to work very well, though I still get one black and white cat come in but just to drink from my pond
