Wolf spiders must be eating something to survive. When their food runs out they will move on or die. If you really can't cope ,use an insecticidal spray.

Good luck dove. I hope you don't have to wait too long. I spent too much time hanging around in hospitals recently. The only thing that I hurt was my pride when I fell. The annoying thing was that it was OH who had tidied the line prop up to where I could trip up over it.

The blue one is wild chicory.it is very lax, flopping all over. If you enlarge it you can see the insect on the left flower. All the dahlias following it are this year's seedlings, making tubers in the veg patch. Late afternoon autumn Sun makes the flowers glow. There are quite a few terracotta coloured ones. I may plant them as a group next year.

 I have to pick the best of the bishops babies dahlias to keep. I think this is a keeper. There is also a finely cut leaf one, but it hasn;t flowered yet.

Well thats the big question. How hardy is it? I'm taking cuttings just in case.

Anyway, I can see a block of six plants together might look good. This is just one plant from a rooted cutting I bought in Spring.

Oak tree problems

OH wanted to let one grow up big and tall. Apart from upsetting the neighbour who is closest to it, by blocking out their light, and the hedge is about 15 ft from their back door, if it grows into a tree again , it will then be susceptible to Dutch Elm again. So it seems like elm has become a hedging tree not a tree tree.

 I'm planning on leaving this in the ground and taking cuttings to overwinter. How hardy is it?
