Can you ID this seed pod

Posted: 09/09/2014 at 17:30

Well done Gardengirl..

I nearly gave up on that one. I can set my mind at peace now. 

You can grow your own crude oil from it. 

It might take a few million years though.

Problem with rose flower

Posted: 09/09/2014 at 16:20

Looks like you might have mildew on the bud leaf just below the flower. This could be the cause.

I have to agree with you fidgetbones. From what i have read its better left to professional on older trees.

Oak tree problems

Posted: 09/09/2014 at 13:44

Sounds like Oak leaf blister (on the Oak) But it normally occur on new leaf in spring.  It is a fungus disease and does not pose a threat to the tree health but can mar the tree's appearance. The spores may carry over to next years buds so a spray (before they bud in spring) may be needed to stop it. 

what is it?

Posted: 09/09/2014 at 13:26

Difficult to tell as i too can't enlarge it. From what i can see, it looks like a young, spindley Hydrangea Bush. Can you get a photo of the buds close up?

Fungi - but what kind

Posted: 08/09/2014 at 15:34

Pleated Inkcap. Coprinus plicatilis
