What's this on my rose?

Posted: 22/07/2016 at 17:11

Looks to me like Robin's Pincushion aka  'Bedeguar Gall'  caused by a tiny gall wasp.  


Not really a problem.

As Nora has said - all those problems have been acknowledged and have been prioritised on the 'GW To Do List' - however, there are other demands on the tech team's time  - Nora has promised to keep us informed 

What is this?

Have been out pottering and potting on but suddenly, large drops of rain out of a clear blue sky!  Grabbed the nearly dry washing off the airer on the terrace and have come in for a cuppasoup and a bit of Guilty Pleasure (Judge Judy)   It won't be for long 'cos I need to go back out there as soon as the big ploppy stuff stops - must hoe and thin the spinach beet seedlings

Monty planting florence fennel near bean

I've never ever had a problem growing fennel near other plants. 


In this garden I've grown it near runner beans, broad beans and french beans, tomatoes, lettuce and Swiss chard with no ill effects.

tumbling tom trim ?

Posted: 22/07/2016 at 11:10

I'd leave them be - tomatoes don't need sun to ripen, only warmth ... and there's plenty of time for those top flowers to produce fruit - my tomatoes go on fruiting well into September, sometimes even October - you'll be deluged with tomatoes

1. Yes, the Edit function is only available for (I think) five minutes after posting.


2. I have the same problem with Latest Posts on my (somewhat elderly) iPhone.  Apparently it's so old that Apple no longer update its software.  Yours isn't as old as mine - perhaps check and see if the latest updates are installed? 

What's this colourful leaf plant?

We often recommend using tomato feed to water our bedding plants etc in the summer, that is because the same nutrients that encourage the formation of fruit will encourage flowering.  However, with Coleus you don't want flowers, you want foliage, so use a more general fertiliser - I would use a weak solution of seaweed fertiliser.
