Honeysuckle leaves turning yellow and falling off

Honeysuckles are woodland plants and like to have their roots cool and moist and their heads in the sunshine - if their roots are too dry they are prone to powdery mildew and the leaves fall off.

Its a shame subscribers don't get this kind of perk that can be useful. I get the subscribers edition of GWM but I can't see the difference to buying it, only that it arrives earlier.

But somebody has to pay for it - there isn't a Perk Fairy - most subscribers already get the magazine cheaper than those of us who buy it from the shops - sometimes considerably cheaper

Note to self - must take out a subscription

Good morning all  

Light drizzle overnight - just what was needed for the lawn treatment so I'm feeling slightly smug - now the sky is brightening and I think today will involve some seed sowing.

It was mentioned on the programme this evening - we've got to see which variety grows the biggest and let Monty know.  Hopefully I'm going to receive some of the Mongolian Giant seeds

I'd get some bags of well rotted farm yard manure from the garden centre and dig that in

What is this plant?

My guess is the same as Nutcutlet's - from your description it's horsetail - but to upload a picture from your pc you click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post.
