Watering tomatoes with smelly water

Posted: 30/06/2015 at 10:27

Stuff washes off the roofs along with the water - they need cleaning out annually as above

umbrella plant

Can you give us a photo or two please?  We can't tell if the pot is the wrong size unless we know how big the plant is.

Has it ever been repotted with fresh compost?

It might have had too much fertilizer - I wouldn't feed it every week - do you mean you've fed it every week through the whole year?

Tree problem - yellowing leaves

OK, that looks more interesting than a bog standard common or garden sycamore - someone on here will recognise it.

If it's a sycamore I wouldn't be too worried - they're tough as old boots, that's why they become such nuisances -  it'll either survive or it won't and I'd be hoping that it doesn't - they're not a tree for a garden, unless you have several acres ........ sorreeeeeee


Are you sure it's a sycamore - it might be something much nicer

They look far too comfortable - explain the facts of living in the 21st Century - austerity etc, Pedigree Chum doesn't grow on trees - they have to get out there and earn a living ........

They are gorgeous

Names please ...

We were only commenting at the weekend that the two lads (10ish and 7ish) who live behind us seem much quieter than most - then yesterday we heard the bouncing noise of a trampoline - but even then they didn't do too much screaming/shouting etc.  We're lucky

Just scrape the potatoes as normal, they'll be fine to eat - don't compost the scrapings.

Yes, straight after flowering

Staghorn Sumac

If you've removed the Sumach and you don't want any more then paint the leaves with weedkiller (SBK brushwood killer would be fine) and leave them to die.  They will give up, eventually.
