hydrangea - is it dead?

Posted: 30/08/2015 at 19:24

Hi SquelchyNo1

To be absolutely frank, it's not the healthiest hydrangea I've ever seen - do you have rabbits or deer in your neck of the woods?

My first success!

Welcome HDPete

Ma used to have a passiflora on the front of her seaside home - it was covered with beautiful golden egg-shaped fruits every autumn

You know that bit in your appraisal when they ask if you have any skills or qualifications that you're not using in your current post?   ....... I worked for Children's Social Services ............

I've read it but not seen it yet - which channel Hosta?

Figs galore

I can see that possibly they're not to your taste Hosta - not even with goat cheese and honey

However, I've always thought they were like another piece of anatomy

Wasps

Find out everything you can about them - eventually you'll find that you're more interested in them than frightened of them.

They're fascinating and beautiful creatures

They won't go after him if he doesn't go after them - but do watch him if he's eating food in the garden, or having a juice drink - they can go after the fruit and it would he horrid if he got stung around the face.

That being said one of my children ran through a wild bees' nest when he was a child and was stung all over his face - he looked quite a sight for a few hours, but a doctor gave him Vitamin C and he recovered quickly.

Don't let your child be frightened  of insects - just teach him to treat them with respect, and until he's old enough to be relied on to do that, keep an eye on him when he's in the garden ... which is what you'd do anyway

.And why would you want wasps in your garden?  'Cos they're beneficial insects and  the Gardener's Friend http://www.downthelane.net/garden-wildlife/wasps.php

Can you help please?
