Clari, never say I don't give you anything! 

Yviestevie - lovely pictures - for a moment I thought you were looking after the grandchildren in a balloon in Egypt   I worked it out .... eventually 

OL, they look lovely - love them in a Salade Nicoise   My Buerre de Rocquencourt wax beans are flowering

You'll find them on the underside of the lily leaves, smothered in their own poo.  I use a wad of kitchen roll to remove the unpleasant little blighters!

Have you read Jeyes own Safety Data Sheet?

I don't suppose you keep chickens do you?  If you do I'd leave the area fallow for a while and move your chickens onto that patch for a year - they love wireworms and will deal with them for you.  

I know that's not much help if you don't keep chickens ........... sorry 

HELLO FORKERS!

Yes, hopefully Bill and Mrs Bill are ok - weren't they moving house? 

Well, I've just got rained off in the garden - I've been out tickling the front border with the Dutch hoe and planting the new plants as well as some purple sage plants I've been growing on to dot about in that new border.    

As the gods were moving the furniture around I gave the bed a good sprinkling of FB&B pellets - now they're being well watered in 

While I was doing that OH dashed into the back garden and got the washing in off the line - now all I need to do is fold it neatly 

 

Potato blight?

I can't enlarge the picture to zoom in, but that doesn't look like Potato Blight to me.  I think the colour of the leaves either indicates that the soil is poor, or that they're ready to harvest. Not all varieties of potato produce flowers - I'd dig a few up and see what you've got
