seriouse ivy problem!

Posted: 30/06/2014 at 05:34
I've used Vitax SBK brushwood killer to get rid of ivy - cut through and remove a section from the stems as near to the base as you can and drill holes into the stumps and pour the SBK into the holes. Also use it to spray remaining greenery - as directed on the packet. It will require several applicatiions and patience and tenacity, but it will work.

Good luck

Major lilly problems

If they're Day Lilies rather than 'real' lilies then they might have Hemerocallis Gall Midge which affects the buds - see this thread

Sounding even more like Tree bees - really nothing to be concerned about. They'll go before winter. They're great early pollinators

I sowed another row last week as well, and if I can find the space I'll sow another row in late July.

Night Lesley

I lost a lot of weight a few years ago - got into skinny jeans etc, but was far too scraggy. I've put some of it back now - probably a bit too much - but I know I look better with a bit of plumpness rather than saggy.

Mine are growing on nicely with, as you say, regular watering and sunshine. They do need to be thinned out in order to get them to form nice hearts.
