What's the star in your garden right now

Lyn, I remember the photo of when you'd just taken the hedge out - what a transformation! 

Hollows in fig tree branch stumps - a problem?

I agree - take it back - potential site of infection there.  

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all   

OL don't panic!  I may well have been wrong - it's not unknown   I've only very rarely had Blossom End Rot (well, my toms, not me ) - it doesn't look like what mine had but fingers are crossed - I can't see any  blight on the picture of your tom plant so I probably am wrong!  

Who knows their roses?

Freaky Fennel

Yes, you have the 'herb' fennel - chop bunches of the leaves and use them in fish dishes.

If you don't want to look a 'wally' in front of your neighbours - now that you've dug it up, dry the stems and use them on a BBQ to cook some fish - it will give it a lovely flavour and it'll look as if that's what you intended all alone

Bay Tree Leaf Curl

Bay trees need well-drained soil and hate soggy roots - over-watering can cause problems.  Let it dry out a bit.  

What next for my Honeysuckle Scentsation?

Posted: 12/07/2014 at 21:02

Some of the flowers must have opened properly or they wouldn't have been fertilised and produced berries.

What did the grubs look like?

What's happened to my tomato?

In my experience BER tends to be darker with sunken blemishes.   I hope Buddyboy is right.  

I'm worried that this is the plant that you had concerns about earlier ....
