Bay leaves turning brown

What sort of compost have you got it in ... I use John Innes No 3 soil based compost, and horticultural grit in a ratio of approx 3:1...... apart from being much better than multi-purpose compost for long term plantings, it provides more weight and stops mine from being blown over

Yes, healthy new leaves ... they'll turn green with time

Could it be that on a warm day aromatic oils from one plant get in the air and land on a plant nearby ... not changing it's nature, but transferring the scent from one to another in a temporary way?


Just a thought ........

Hear!  Hear!  My son's been quoting that for weeks 

Can anyone help me identify this plant (possibly a weed?)

Persicaria ... a common weed in cultivated ground

Edited to add:  Pete's post hadn't appeared when I posted.  It's the same weed, just a different common name

We used to get taken on nature walks at primary school, and the teacher was very knowledgeable.


And do you remember the I-Spy Books?  I learned so much from them

I was going to do that Topbird but I'd have to fit in with them timewise and OH will need to come with me  into the Polling Station so it has to be when he gets back from work ....... it's only half a mile down the road and will take five mins and I'll feel 'in control' just a little bit  


I'm quite a stubborn independent soul ... must take after Ma
