Talkback: Autumn harvests

Posted: 02/10/2013 at 18:50
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.

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.

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

Help!!! I think this is Fuchsia Gall Mite

Thank you Lyn, I have done just that. I have done a little more research and I have decided to bin the ones that are infected. I would rather loose some plants than have than have that in the garden. It is sad though to have to do that, but it is all part of gardening eh.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. Verdun, they might not have any fragrance but who cares when they look like that, do you now have your own Dahlia collection?

I have noticed this on some of my Fuchsias, I have a feeling its Gall mite. What can I do? I don't want to loose my plants as some of them I have had a long time. Is it transfered plant to plant? I have looked this up and some say cut it out others say to distroy the plants. Any advise would greatly received. Thank you
