oxalis rust

Posted: 31/07/2014 at 06:52

Hi Melanie

I'm not an intentional grower of oxalis although there is a very insistent variety that keeps appearing in my veg patch!  I'm sure that some people will be heartened to know that there is a disease that affects them.

However, I don't mean to be unkind - I can see that Oxalis Red Wine is a choice plant. 

As I said I've not grown it, but my instinct would be to cut it hard back and water it and wait for it to re-shoot.  If it's in a container I'd also re-pot with fresh compost.

Don't know what others think ............................ anyone got another idea ???

Good morning all  

Strange day yesterday, but the past is behind us - onwards and upwards folks!  

Glad you had a lovely day yesterday Woody 

Hope OL's packed everything she needs for Carfest 

Think some of you in northern parts are getting cooler damper weather today but apparently over here in the east we may stay sunny until later in the day.  

I'm visiting son and then on to the Aged Ps, so won't be On Board much - I'll be driving around the sunny Suffolk countryside with my top down - until the rain starts 

HELLO FORKERS!

The twiggier and stickier the fuel for the bonfire the higher the proportion of potash in the ashes will be.  

The old allotmenteers in our village used to dry off their runner bean haulms and burn them on a dry winter's day along with old pea sticks etc.  

Then they'd incorporate the ash into their compost heap - fantastic for growing squashes and pumpkins on the following year.

Drink some water Rosemummy - most headaches are due to dehydration - or so OH tells me, and we've established elsewhere that he's smart!

It was a bit hectic earlier on, but while eating our toad in the hole out on the terrace I managed to persuade OH that some little solar lights would look nice on the grapevine trellis that shelters one side of the eating area - I've ordered a little set of warm white fuzzy lights, solar powered with really good reviews on Amazon, for less than a tenner!!!  

Now I'm watching The Games with Pdoc
