Brown patches and curling on hydrangea leaves

Posted: 07/05/2017 at 16:36

Loads of people's hydrangeas have been caught by the recent air frost and it looks as if yours is another one of them - absolutely no need to spray with anything.  You can remove the damaged leaves if you wish; new ones will grow.

Look like chives to me too Bob.  Lovely with scrambled egg.  

Chives grow between 8 - 16" tall, depending on conditions.

That looks to me like a young hawthorn sapling. 

Can You Identify this plant/weed?

Sunny bed weeded, chard seedlings weeded and watered, half the veg patch hoed everything watered and OH was kind and tidied and put everything away for me.  I have no fingernails left ...

It's probably mycelium from some sort of fungi ... does it smell mushroomy?  We get it in some areas of the garden ... it seems to be in areas where there were once some decayed tree roots.  It's not causing any problem to the plants or grass

Back 'lawn' mowed and edged ... I left a patch of longer grass and daisies around the pond 

Now I'm indoors for a lovely herby omelette and another  then I'll be on my hands and knees out there weeding the baby chard.  There's a lot of chickweed germinated around it ... 

My terrible lawn

Do you mean that you can only access the garden via the house?

Chicky ... that's absolutely gorgeous 

Front lawn mowed and edged and some supports put in for the lupins which are nearly flowering!  They snuck up on me ... hadn't noticed how quickly they were growing.  

Now a quick 

then it's the grass at the back to do ........ I might leave some patches for the daisies ...
