My privet topiary leaves have gone white

Posted: 12/10/2015 at 12:19

Thanks Liz ... how long have you had the trees?

Do the leaves appear to be healthy but white, or are they going crisp and dead?

Under Gardener is out in the garden deconstructing raised beds (they're where the new flower bed is going to be dug when the tree has been felled), emptying tomato pots, and doing general lifting and tidying jobs - I'm instructing from the kitchen as I'm making tomato and chilli chutney (inspired by the lovely stuff given to us by Hosta's fab OH ).

We've just stopped for a coffee ........

It's ok Hosta - we know what you mean

I just drove up to the GC to help OH deliver a newly completed chalk-board sign as BigWig is coming today and they want the restaurant signs to look more professional - they were very pleased and paid on delivery  

The problem is that I needed some wire to go over the pond and some windbreak fabric for the broccoli so I had to go into the GC with OH .............


Three pots of violas, three bags of Iris reticulata bulbs and some Allium Christophii bulbs just fell into my empty basket - honest!!!  

Just about added up to what they'd paid OH

Ah!  That's fine then - couldn't do that here although we could when we lived a couple of miles away in the city centre

Is this really cruel?

Very true Jo

My OH sells Ladies' Fingers in the farm shop - he says they're very popular

Turf in Flowerbeds!

Providing it's ordinary turf it should be fine.  If there was couch grass in the turf you might get a problem - if the gardener knew what he was doing he shouldn't have put any couch grass in there.  Fingers crossed
