ID for hardy geranium please

Yes, here it is - Dryopteris erythrosora 'Prolifica' - I've found it also called the Dwarf Rosy Buckler Fern and the Japanese Shield Fern and various other names

Yes Topbird - that's the colour of that fern's new growth - it looks best at this time of year but hangs onto the colour quite a while, if I remember correctly.  I'll have a hunt for it's name  ... it should be in the notebook somewhere ...

Hi Foggers and welcome

Is it thirsty?

Anyone seen any ladybirds?

Posted: 26/05/2015 at 20:40

Not seen many - a few natives on the grapevine in March, and some Harlequins on the roses a couple of weeks ago.  I think it's too chilly - they're still hiding and keeping warm. 

We don't use insecticides and neither do any of the neighbours around us

What is this.

Verdun, I told her she'd built a coffin - just as well her hubby is 6'7" so he'll know it's not for him LOL

Nut, think she pinched it!  

Verdun, you can't escape from Nut until she's given you sandwiches and coffee and cake and filled your car with plants

Think I probably did Nut - but there are two of them  

I thought it might be that but the pic here just didn't look like it.

Now I've looked at the pic here which looks exactly like it.

Thanks you two

diseased mint

Dave, I was just going to say - aphid damage - often seen on young mint leaves.  Pick it off or use a soapy water spray.  Nothing to worry about.
