BOX TREES

Sometimes mal-treatment before the plants come into our possession can reveal itself a bit later on.  If they'd been allowed to dry out for a while at the GC the effects could be showing now - sounds like they're getting the right treatment now so hopefully they'll make a good recovery

Lots of information re control of the condition given on Buddyboy's link.  I find that thinning the fruit also helps prevent fungal/bacterial problems.

The mild winter and a warm summer with periods of high humidity has certainly provided optimum conditions for these problems.

We need a few good sharp frosts this winter

Yellow poppy - is it Icelandic poppy?

I'd bet on the Welsh too just 'cos it's the sort of plant that just appears - but as Nut says, I can't be certain from a photo.

New Raised Bed

Posted: 18/09/2014 at 08:35

I use 50% topsoil 50% well rotted farmyard manure in raised beds.

I find that Swiss chard, Pak choi, Little Gem lettuce and broad beans are all successful - I'm also going to try some autumn-sown peas.

We started the day with fog, but the sun's burning it off - apparently we've got a sunny day ahead   I'm going into the city on the bus later to get shorn - beginning to look like Worzel Gummidge   - as I can't grub around in the garden for a while I've also booked a manicure - got to live up to Panda's claws on Saturday

Pheasants attack the plums

Posted: 17/09/2014 at 20:45

At a shoot the beaters drive the birds towards the guns and they fly up over the shooters' heads - they fire upwards at the pheasants - to fire across the land would be dangerous - they'd shoot the beaters or the dogs

 

Does anyone know what this shrub is please?

I was going to say Viburnum tinus too, but everyone beat me to it
