Fine drizzle  here in Norfolk - have come in for some lunch - may well not get back outside today now ...


Have noticed that my big sage plant is on the way out - the herb bed gets run off from the terrace when we get a downpour and it's pretty soggy the end where the sage is - but the mind needs digging up and dividing so I'll move the mint to the soggy end (in it's big pots sunk into the ground) and put the replacement sage cuttings which I took earlier this year, in the end near the grapevine.  But it doesn't look as if it'll happen today ...

This doesn't look much in dry soil Dove, you may have to water it under a tree in Norfolk, (most years, not this one)


See original post

 Plan is for it to be the other side where the tree is no more ... the 'stump' is faux .... a big chunk/log of the felled one, placed carefully at the edge of the sunny bed for aesthetic purposes (and to allow it to rot down for the bugs and beetles).

Help! what are these???

Translucent leaves on perennial wallflowers

Posted: 10/07/2016 at 10:02

It looks like damage by one of the many types of leaf-miners.  I'd pick off the affected leaves and destroy.  The plants should recover, maybe they're just having a rest - they don't flower all year round.


 However perennial wallflowers aren't a long-lived plant - maybe it's time to replace them?

Does anyone have some offshoots of Gardeners Garters they'd be willing to pack up and post to me please?


I'm happy to cover packaging and postage and/or make a charity donation.


And yes, I do know that it spreads, but it's just what I need for around a tree stump in a wild (ish) patch.

Would the NDN benefit from a plague of ants?   I have surplus to our requirements
