Prunus incisa 'Kojo-no-mai' problems

Posted: Yesterday at 19:09

We've had an unusually dry winter and spring, and some high temperatures ..... I would try giving all three plants lots of water ........ two buckets full for each plant three times a week.  


There's no pesticides which can identify between those we consider goodies and baddies.

Lots of things are banned in the USA.  What's right for one place doesn't necessarily apply in another.  


I've been growing Hesperis Matronalis for over 50 years, in many different garden in the UK - never has it caused any problems and it has always been an absolute delight. 



Hesperis matronalis 'Alba'  on my Shady Bank

What is this plant?

It's a tree sapling ... possibly Salix caprea or one of its many crosses.  It is often found as a 'volunteer' in pots in gardens, as the fluffy seeds blow around on the wind and grow where they settle.

Horsetail

Posted: Yesterday at 15:57

I have read that it does not do well in limey soil ... we have a very chalky soil in this area and do not have horsetail ............ thus far, fingers crossed.


In your position as well as using glyphosate I would try liming the soil ....... as long as you don't have ericaceous plants, or don't mind losing them.

According to OH breathing in air containing oxygen causes oxydation which causes cancer ... or something along those lines involving free radicals..... stop breathing folks! 


If you carry on breathing don't say you haven't been warned
