insects killing plant roots

Posted: 20/08/2014 at 06:15

You need to find out if there is something eating the roots, and if so what sort of insect, so you're going to have to gently dig up some of your affected plants and carefully inspect the roots. 

One of the most common culprits is the vine weevil larva - info here  https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=234

If it's green algae, I can recommend Blagdon Barley Straw extract - you can get it on line or from most GCs.  

If it's blanket weed the extract seems to help keep it down, but I also use a bamboo cane and twirl it around a bit like making candyfloss and pull it out and leave it on the bank so that any inhabitants to find their way back to the water. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello I'm back from a lovely day out with daughter - we went to Pin Mill (the setting for some of Arthur Ransome's children's novels) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pin_Mill and had a fantastic lobster salad lunch  and a walk along the foreshore and the wooded river bank alongside all the houseboats that are moored there.

 Pin Mill, including the Adnams' pub, the Butt and Oyster 

 

Any news from BL and DD or have they both been taken by white slave traders?

Frost?
