Such a talent and described by those who met him as a lovely kind and gentle man.

So sad

Yes, sad isn't it - according to those who met him he was a really nice man, quiet and gentle.  He had that awful accident didn't he

Hi Sandra

That looks like aphid damage to me.  Not a lot you can do about it and a healthy tree will not be bothered by it.  

Encourage ladybirds and bluetits to your garden - the bluetit fledglings hoover up the aphids in our garden.  

Hoverflies also eat aphids, so planting lots of umbellifers that aphids love will encourage them into your garden too. 

Good luck

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

Does the same apply to curly leaves on a pepper?

 

HI  Tootles  

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

Tomato leaves curling?

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.
