It explains why a lot of us miss the small weeds - it's hard to weed with fingers crossed

I've not seen one for years - used to get them on the farm when we were children - Pa sometimes found a dead one - they're nocturnal and like damp areas so you might get one in a moth trap near your ponds Nut

Hi Maura 

Tell us a bit more about the problem.  If you can post a picture that would be good.  

To post a pic on here you click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions to upload a photo from your pc.

If it doesn't work give us a shout.

I hope so Philippa - it's only been there a few months - the nurseryman thought it would be fine - it's a very sheltered corner on the south facing terrace next to the fig tree.  I'll bubblewrap the pot for the winter as I do for the fig, and have fleece available for very cold snaps but I won't wrap it unless the forecast is dire. 

Fingers crossed.

It's very hot out there!   26.6C last time I looked.  I just planted the rudbeckias I was given on the Barnsdale trip (you know who you are! ) so am just pulling the hosepipe round to the front to give them a good watering in.

We won't know unless you give us some clues 

When planted and where?

How pruned?

How fed and watered?
