Butternut squash

They should be OK, just be careful when transplanting from the pots. You are not exactly disturbing the roots, just giving it more room to grow.

Take a pic please. It's the only way we can confirm.

Welcome Paul Whitcombe

Click green tree icon in reply box to post pics. (does not work from phones)

A small window will appear with two tabs showing one for (your computer) and the other for (an external site).

Hit your comp tab and then pick select. This will take you to your computer files (new small window) where you can pick your file and press ok/open. The window will close and you will see your file name appear in the box next to the select button.

Now hit the upload button. This will probably cause a error window to open (Radupload ajax callback error with lots of text). Press return or the X (top right) 

Then wait till it appears in the small window. This can take a while so be patient.

When it appears press the save button and wait again. It should appear in the reply box but again this might take time.

Some files can be too big and will need to be cropped before they will load.

Hope this helps.

From the ED, today.

I'm sorry that you're having trouble posting images on the forum. A couple of things to check:

The images you upload need to be in jpeg or jpg format.

They should be less than 2mb in file size. If your files are larger you'll need to reduce them in size - there's a free app for iPad which will do this here:

I hope that helps!

Cherry tree

Did it flower well this year and is it sweet cherry. 

Is it in a container or planted out?


Fuchsia and capsid bugs

Posted: 29/06/2015 at 10:47

The damage by the Capsid Bug has already been done. They sucks the sap leaving a toxin behind that damages the plant.  By the time you have notice the damage the bug will have found another host/feed further away.

Not sure what cutting back will do to help it so I hope others may know.

Red tailed bumblebee. Bombus Lapidarius (female)

Green soldier stink bug

Unless you have a major infestation of them, then I would do nothing. 

Green stink bugs have numerous natural enemies. Birds, toads, spiders, other insect-eating animals and even other insects prey on them. They probably have already be parasitized by species of Hymenoptera and Diptera.

I do the same Welshonion. Bailing twine does the job fine. 

Potato plants dying - whats happening?

Posted: 29/06/2015 at 09:54

It's not unusual LittleMissSunshine so do not worry. My Kind Edwards and Cara were over 6ft tall last year. They are supported in special frames with string to keep them growing up rather than along the ground. 

I do grow for show though. Cara is a excellent show variety as it has its little pink eyes. Tastes great too.

Another Id Please

I would agree with Nut. You can just see the flower in the bottom photo.

Macleaya cordata can get that pink tinge to the edge of the leaf.
