Small yellow things growing on mulch?

Posted: 21/06/2015 at 15:37

The first pic looks like Fairy Ring toadstools (how appropriate at Midsummer ).  Brush them off before mowing or if you're worried about the dogs eating them.

No idea what the little yellow blobs are, but they'll be some sort of fungi breaking down the mulch - they won't harm your plants - the world depends on fungi breaking down organic matter

GillyScreen - always always always use garden chemicals at the dilution specified on the packaging - no more, no less.

Lily, yesterday was Betrothal Celebrations

Sounds as if that 10 year old could/should be drafted in for any heavy lifting, digging, lugging that needs doing in the future

garden design with no budget

Thought the OP said the second picture - isn't that the one with the lawn on the left and a cultivated area with possibly a fruit tree on the right? Or have I misunderstood

It's one of those gardening myths.  Picking off the potato flowers makes no discernible difference to the yield.

Nice to see Flatters modelling his new collar

OK Wonkey - well it's a free pot there's a pelargonium you'll have to keep on the kitchen windowsill through the winter, and the French marigold should deter whitefly/greenfly etc............. look at it this way, the organisers obviously don't have terribly high expectations're bound to win top prize when they see what you've done to your garden in just a couple of months

And if you and hubby are moving to Scotland, don't forget we'll need your address for holidays

Come on Wonky - let's have a look ...........

Rose propagation

The majority of top class florist's roses are grown in Ecuador - even if you could get a rooted cutting of your rose it's unlikely that it would grow well in UK conditions.  Sorry

If you want to grow a rose in your garden that looks as close as possible to the roses in your bouquet, have a look here

particularly at Gisela's Delight and Paul's Early Blush
