Are they honeybees? If so this should help http://www.bbka.org.uk/help/do_you_have_a_swarm.php
Supper has been eaten out on the terrace - the under gardener is washing up, the hedgehog food dishes have been filled and food has been scattered for noisy young blackbirds and dunnocks. It reached 34C in the shade out in the front garden
Anyone heard from Punkdoc lately?
Hello folks, Dove's been watering (with a lot of help from the under gardener ) 30+ pots of tomatoes, plus cukes also in pots, and the raised beds needed a good soaking, as did the front border - the poor fig tree was thirsty and it's leaves started to go yellow - not surprised 34C in the front garden
Sorry some people have had carp days - but TGIF Have a little alcofrolic something or other with me and help Panda celebrate - HER HOLIBOBS START HERE!!!
I'd give the clematis a good drink too - and maybe a dose of liquid fertiliser too - they're very hungry plants.
It sounds as if these trees are suffering from lack of water. Trees and shrubs need a lot of water in their first few years, and sometimes throughout their lives, depending on conditions.
In the summer I would give a newly planted tree (ie a tree in it's first couple of years) at least a full bucket of water at least three times a week every week, even if it's rained recently.
How often is it watered ?
Just an outside chance - Tesco online sell a hexagonal growhouse - it might be worth checking the measurements and if they're compatible you might be able to purchase a cover from them http://www.tesco.com/direct/tesco-hexagonal-growhouse-with-metal-frame-plastic-cover/213-4557.prd
That's just what they do when the flowers are fading, particularly if they're rained on.
Where did she buy it? Is it a named variety?
You'll have to head for the Philipines Artjak
