Pear Tree Diseased

Posted: 16/09/2014 at 06:35

Perhaps you're leaving them on the tree for too long - pears don't ripen on the tree - they need to be picked while they are still quite firm, and then allowed to ripen. http://www.fruitexpert.co.uk/whentoharvestfruit.html

We had a similar question a while back http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/fruit-andamp-veg/conference-pears/79508.html

Panda ;((hugs)) life gets you a bit like that sometimes doesn't it

BL sorry you've had more sad news.

I've been in the garden supervising OH tidying the pond - pruning/thinning  some of thr oxygenating plants etc

And we met a new toad - that's two we've seen in this garden now, both quite different colours

 

Rose bush help!

Amilee   I agree with the others - it's an ex rose.    Treat yourself to another.

 

If you have to grow it in a pot have a look on this website - you can search for Hybrid Tea roses suitable for growing in a pot http://www.classicroses.co.uk/productindex.php?type=rose&prodfinderformroseCondSuitableForPot=on&prodfinderformroseFamily=hybrid_teas

 

Leaves on honeysuckle dying falling off

Posted: 15/09/2014 at 13:57

I would always cut a honeysuckle back hard  in it's first autumn after planting - probably down to 18" - it'll grow much bigger and thicker next year, and my bet is that you'll get some flowers as well

More ID's for plants in my wildflower border, please.

I don't know Ragweed so I googled - looks like it can be very invasive so a good idea not to let it seed  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambrosia_artemisiifolia
