Help!!! I think this is Fuchsia Gall Mite

Posted: 05/09/2013 at 12:29

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?

Help!!! I think this is Fuchsia Gall Mite

Posted: 04/09/2013 at 16:54

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

I just wanted to share my lovely Dahlias with you. This is the first year that I have grown them and I am so pleased with them.  I will be growing them again next year.

I always ropot mine in the spring just as they are starting to grow again. By this time I have cut them back so they are more managable when removing them from the pot. All my Fuchsias are in pots and some of them I have had for a very long time, hardy as well as tender ones.

cat-problems-

Posted: 14/08/2013 at 17:59

I have asked before on the forum about keeping cats out of the garden. I have done the Jeyes Fluid and that does seem to keep them out, well all but one little black and white cat who comes in nearly everyday to have a drink out of my small pond. He then sits and admires my garden for while then he is gone. It is what cats do and I don't think any law will be able to stop it. It will be a waste of tax payers money, Jeyes Fluid is a lot cheaper.

I agree, a brilliant series. I'm with you Fairygirl, no loud music, no shouting it is bliss. Why does everything have to be so loud these days? 

What's the star in your garden right now

This is my star in the garden at the moment, Pot Marigold. They are all looking wonderful right now and such a vibrant colour.
