More Privet Problems

Posted: Yesterday at 15:13

Leaf spot, Cercospora a fungal infection.

Use a Fungicide containing myclobutanil and azoxystrobin. Apply early spring to the ground below the shrub to kill the fungus before it infects the plant. They don't kill fungus that has already begun to discolour the leaves of your privet, but they can prevent the fungus from spreading to new leaves if you spray healthy leaves. 

Rake away any dead leaves or twigs beneath your shrub and dispose of them.

Prune off the infected branches and dispose of them in a plastic bag to keep spores from spreading. 

Try and water the base of the plant instead of the leaves. (difficult if it is out side)

Scarifying: what is it?

Posted: Yesterday at 13:55

Topbird. Hope I do not sound rude as it is not intended.

Scarifying should be done twice a year (or when required) and the thatch material from the lawn is some of the best composting material you can get. It takes no longer to compost than any other green material put in the bin. 

Scarifying: what is it?

Depends on the size of your lawn and the effort you consider to be reasonable.

Lawn care is below and you may want to consider getting a scarifier. (see other link)

Have you checked your Forum settings 1Runnybeak1. You may have accidental altered something. Remember you need advanced editor. The system may have automatically changed something. Not sure why it would but it is worth a check.

How do you prick out antirrhinum

Posted: 03/03/2015 at 04:13

You can try some now. 

Do you have thousands. I know they are small/tiny.

Leave the rest and see how they develop. Some will die and (you might need to remove them) you can pick them off but I would say you need to thin them out any way at this stage.
