Potato berry???

Posted: 28/09/2014 at 18:03

I agree with Bob - a clear and concise explanation - the fruiting body of the potato.

 

Can you identify this for me please?

Potatoes grow tubers from the stem if those are buried (or partially so) and tubers turn green then purple on exposure to sunlight.  I think that's what has happened here.

I agree - small potatoes.

My viburnum Bodnantense has been flowering in the past few weeks, instead of waiting for midwinter, so it could be one of those.

HELLO FORKERS!

I leave it alone until the leaves have gone brown and withered, then I pull them off.  You might like to remove the seedheads tho, to stop it self seeding.

It is interesting to look back isn't it?  When my parents were farming they kept weather records - no idea where they are now ...

You obviously breed your vine weevils much bigger and tougher up north than we southern softies Bb

The leaf damage looks like the work of leaf cutter bees to me. 

The vine weevils would have to be enormous to take out chunks of leaf that size.
