It does feel chilly but the lowest temp last night was 6..9C so not too bad 

As we're planning to be away for a week in early June, I've not sown my runner beans yet.  

What do you think?  Shall I sow them in pots indoors next week, or just before we go away?

There won't be anyone doing any watering while we're away (toms etc will be potted on then left in shady spot in OH's studio with capillary mat type set up - we've done it before and they were fine)

mildew on euphorbia

In your message to me  you say that you don't believe that dryness is the problem - in this case have a look here for helpful advice.

It will be of some cheer for you to learn that the majority of powdery mildews are plant specific, and the one affecting your euphorbia should not spread to different types of plants - although of course poor cultural conditions may make them susceptible to their own type of powdery mildew.

Good luck 

Gravel bed , advice please

Good morning all :) G'day Pat :)

Cool but fairly bright here this morning. I'm still in bed with my second coffee. OH has peddled off to work.  We have a Eurovision Fest to plan for this evening. Apparently it has to involve Tortilla chips, dips and sausages amongst other goodies. :)

Plant pauper :) yes, we're off to Hosta & Verdun Land at the beginning of June. It's so kind of you to say you'll pop round here every evening to tend our toms and squashed - we're very grateful ;-)

Tulip massacre!

Posted: 13/05/2016 at 20:00

I've had that happen, but only to one tulip - I put it down to cutworm activity 

What is this?

Don't think it's any of the plants commonly called Wild Ginger.

Does look like celandine to me - but I can't see it clearly.
