Mystery tree

Posted: 19/03/2016 at 18:07

Can't really tell without leaves - wait just a few weeks and we'll have some information to go on.

If you put a gun to my head and said "Guess!"  I'd say it might just possibly be an ornamental pyrus, but that is just a guess.

Does he still have long plaited hair? Haven't seen him for years!

 

Yes  - he lives not far from here and we use the same supermarket.  Not sure if he'd be available for regular GW - his wife has been very ill and he spends a lot of time with her and their young twins.

I think he's great on GQT but not sure that he'd be right for GW full-time.

It does look similar to Genista aetnensis aka Mount Etna Broom (one of my favourite trees). 

I don't know Retama sphaerocarpa but if, as Marlorena says it's similar and more common in your area then my guess is that she's right and that's what it is - especially if it can cause allergic reactions.

I've never known the Genista to cause any allergy problems other than hayfever when it's in flower. 

Hope your husband makes a swift recovery.

I'm afraid I can't see the picture. 

You can upload a photo by clicking on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions. 

Or you can put the photo on a photo-hosting site and post a link to it 

Bell pepper help needed

Posted: 19/03/2016 at 13:37

Put a squirt of washing up liquid in a bowl of lukewarm water. 

Hold the pot with your fingers spread across the top of the pot with the pepper stem between your fingers and turn the pot upside down (your fingers will keep the compost in the pot).

Swish the plant around in the water gently then stand  it aside to drain. 

That'll get rid of the aphids.  It also works for whitefly.
