Stinking Fungus

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 11:04

It sounds like Stinkhorn - google Stinkhorn fungus and see if that's what you've got.

They grow on decomposing wood and are frequently found on layers of woodchip/bark mulch.

If that's what you've got clear away the decomposing wood in that area and it should clear the problem.

 

Plumless plum tree

Hi Lizzie 

Can you tell us more about the plum tree - variety, size and location of pot, feeding and watering regime etc.  A photo or two would be good.

To post a pic on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar at the top of where you type your post, and follow the instructions.  Afraid it doesn't work on phones ... yet!

It it doesn't work let us know.

Re cake - I think Hortum -c may have looked at the first page of this thread - hope he/she hasn't ploughed through the thread from the beginning to here

Tomato leaves curling?

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 08:42

 I grow a few chillies but I'm not a pepper expert - but that does look very like aphid damage to me.

I'd spray with a soapy solution - I use Ecover but you can get soap-based organic sprays at the garden centres - pay particular attention to the undersides of the leaves and the growing tips.

Good luck
