Fruit Trees

Either use very big pots or plant them in the ground.   It is probably due to irregular watering, and pots getting too dry at times.

What is it on a Lily pot?

No, if you snip off the top with the bulbs on, the leaves will put food back into the bulb for next year.  Keep it in a sunny place and give it a bit of feed and water.

Tigerlilies especially are prone to stem bulbils.

Complain to the manufacturer. There is no control over the "recycled" stuff that goes in. I put all my bindweed and dock roots in the bin to go to the council. It get "recycled" back into peat free compost.

i'll stick to the stuff containing peat. It might be a £1 a bag dearer. I dont waste the seed and plant money though

What is your weather like?

Weed identifucation

I think you have field bindweed. The only thing that will kill it is glyphosate. Try one of the touchweeder sticks, just on its leaves.

Otherwise mowing it every three days should slow it down.

I had one exactly like that. The two flower buds were joined together back to back, and the stem like two joined together. The others on the plant are as usual.

No ones moving around here.

I waited ages at Birmingham airport in arrivals. Three quarters of an hour later my friend appeared. No bag. Travelling light? No, the bag went to the original destination of New York.

Its a good job we are both approximately the same size.

Waiting in for a phone call to see if they have found it. Its too hot to do anything other than peg washing out, so relaxing in the shade. Lots of drinks in order today.
