Ideas for area near water butt?

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 17:14

Hi Dave 

I'd worry about a chiminea being there - it might melt the water butt!!!

What about a Fatsia in a big pot - it would love it there and would disguise the water butt a bit 

Help needed

Does the same apply to curly leaves on a pepper?

 

HI  Tootles  

What's happening to your peppers?  Can you show us a pic?

Like this? http://www.thompson-morgan.com/diseases/leaf-curl 

If you look at Greathat's photo the leaves are rolling in from the sides, rather than curling up.

Thanks.  I must have somehow been watering that more than the others.  I will be less attentive to it

If watering from a can it's quite possible to give one plant more or less than the others - particularly if at the beginning or end of a row, or if the watering can holds just a bit more than is needed for three pots, sometimes the third pot gets a bit extra - or as Greathat says,  perhaps he/she overdid the moisture retention material in that pot when potting up - all such things are variables if you're not doing things in a scrupulously measured way.

sorry dove but varying temperatures is one of the main source of leaf curl

I absolutely agree with you Buddyboy  - but it's not the only cause, and only one tomato plant is showing the symptoms and they will all have been exposed to the same temperatures so, the cause is more likely to be something that can be a variable, possibly watering. 

Diseases of trees and shrubs

The problem seems only to be affecting the young tender growth so my feeling is that it is likely to be aphid damage - they may well have been picked off by the birds and ladybirds by now, but the damage has been done.

However, I'm sure the whips will survive and put on new growth 

chicken resistant plants

Chickens will trash almost any plant given time, as even if they're not going to eat it, they're innately curious creatures and want to keep having a go.  

When I kept chickens the only things that survived in their large pens were thistles, nettles and elderberry bushes.!  

A friend had Japanese Knotweed in her garden - she build the chicken run around it - 10 years later - no JKW - the chickens had eradicated it!

If the tree has caused damage you need proper legal advice which none of us (as far as I'm aware) are qualified to give.

Check your household insurance - that may give you cover for legal advice in cases like this.

Good luck.

There are all sorts of causes of stress in tomatoes - my deduction is that as this is only happening with one plant it's not likely to be temperatures - it has to be something that can be a variable e.g. watering.  And as Greathat said they're being watered every day, I think it's likely that is overdoing it.

However, I would treat the aphids with an organic treatment - don't want them to multiply - and they will!!!
