Honeysuckle dropping leaves

Posted: 09/07/2014 at 16:27

It's developing Powdery mildew - on honeysuckle that usually indicates that the roots of the plant have been allowed to dry out at some time.  

Is it in a pot?  Honeysuckle is seldom happy in a pot.  

It needs loamy soil rather than light fibrous compost, and a deep cool and damp root run.

Hello folks!  I'm back   Just been around the garden tying up plants, standing pots back up and moving tall plants in pots into even more sheltered corners - it's blowing a hooley out there!!!  The sea was beautiful at Southwold, a real scouring tide - I should really have gone down to Dunwich and walked along the shoreline looking for amber - it's in this combination of weather and tidal conditions that some good lumps have been found.  

As it was I went to Woottens - their Hemerocallis Field was open to the public - very beautiful .  

Nut, you were right, I bought my Aster Frikartii Monch http://www.woottensplants.com/plview.asp?ID1=2191 

and a few more things -  

Salvia greggii Trewithen Cerise  http://www.woottensplants.com/plview.asp?ID1=9368

Echinacea purpurea Magnus http://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/97560/Echinacea-purpurea-Magnus/Details 

and Echinips ritro Veitch's Blue http://www.woottensplants.com/plview.asp?ID1=3836

I had to be so strict with myself - so many lovely plants

It's not exotic or anything, but I've always wanted Aster x frikartii monch but never had a sunny spot for it.  Now I've got the west facing border in the front garden I'm going to get one ................ what is more I'm going to drive down to Woottens of Wenhaston today and get it 

 

and what else will you come back with Dove

Perhaps you could run a sweepstake Nut?

I know it's not quite as warm today as it was a few days ago, but it's not mid-winter temps, however my Viburnum Bodnantense Charles Lamont is flowering!!!

Can anyone identify this plant? Mauve flowers, green leaves?

Posted: 09/07/2014 at 08:47

Anyone else with any ideas - I'm stumped - Nut, have you had a look?
