Hello Forkers - April edition

Shoulder still iffy Obelixx. Seems to have got this far and is now stuck. If can sometimes be very painful, particularly in the morning, then it eases, but I just cannot fully extend it  But it's not getting any worse - at least that's positive 

No heart cabbage and Kale

With the cabbage it could depend on what variety they are.

You could probably have been eating your kale for a couple of months ... it doesn't heart up like a cabbage, you just take the leaves off.  Afraid they will be bitter after running to flower.  Better luck next year

Horse chestnut for me too, but I'm wondering whether she means burdock burrs?

Camellia with ash type virus

Posted: 19/04/2017 at 19:17

I don't grow camellias, but my parents did ... they used a specialist camellia feed but I can't remember which one ... Burncoose Nurseries  (I have visited and have seen their plants which all looked in very good condition ) recommend Vitax Q4 

Camellia with ash type virus

That looks to me like old honeydew from an earlier aphid or scale infestation, which has now grown a sooty mould.  You may be able to remove it with a damp cloth.  

The leaves look a bit yellow - could your camellia do with a feed?

Worms are good ... no need to worry about them being around your pots 

Woodlice do little if any harm.

Back from tennis ... had a good session, including winning my own service game against 'the best pair' to love  Woo hoo!!!

I've also done some food shopping and been up to the GC for a bag of MPC - I had  planned to prick out the tomatoes this afternoon, but it's clouded over and turned really chilly ... the forecast for the next few days is warming up a bit so I'll leave them for a day or so ... they're still quite tiny.

Good morning all   Quite a sharp frost on the grass here at the front of the house  - hope the pear blossom will have escaped it as its in a fairly sheltered corner. 

Tennis later this morning, then I'll get our into the garden ... If the clear blue sky and sunshine remain it's going to be a lovely day.

Poor Clari ((hugs)) 

Get well soon to all who aren't themselves right now, and love and luck to all who need it. 

Enjoy your special time with the littlies tomorrow Lily P. 

Now we're back snuggled in our own bed so sweet dreams all ... see you in the morning
