Wasps on sunflower plants?

Posted: 15/08/2015 at 19:49

They won't do any harm - if they're wasps they're probably looking for aphids to eat ... but could they be hover flies?

Rhubarb, Isle of Ely

Posted: 15/08/2015 at 17:29

In the Isle of Ely there's a place called Grunty Fen - it holds (or used to hold) an annual rhubarb festival.  Whether that has anything to do with your rhubarb I have no idea, but it may be worth exploring further.

Votes please, and a quick questions...

They look great Tootles

As for the pines - have you got a north-facing corner over by the boundary fence I can see in the reflection?

French Dwarf Beans

It's not a problem - some varieties of french beans have purplish or reddish blotches on the pods - absolutely nothing to worry about

I wasn't correcting you, if it looked like that Dove?

Your post wasn't there when I replied (I must be a slow typer)

No that's fine - just didn't want people trying to look up pink campion and not find it - red campion is it's proper name

For me it has to be the holly - but you'll need to clip it and start making it a formal shape, then it will look fabulous.   

My reasoning is:

I know that holly can be clipped and kept to a size that will suit that pot.

If we don't know what type the pine is, it might not be happy being kept closely confined.  

That's my thought anyway
