Lower leaves on tomatoes going yellow

Posted: 22/06/2014 at 10:59

As the fruit set, you can remove leaves at the bottom. Mine yellow as the plant gets larger. I just remove them.

I still think its the great mullein. Did you buy it or was it planted by the birds?

I have Verbacum Banana custard this year, and apart from the individual flowers being bigger and possibly a deeper yellow, I see little difference from the type.

Aussie Lodger went out clubbing last night with my other schoolfriends  18 year old twin girls. He hadn't seen them since they were 6. They've grown up a bit since then.

They got in at 4 am, I collected him and delivered him to train station,so that he could get a train to Manchester.

Bees in roof, photo, what are they?

Posted: 21/06/2014 at 17:54

Tree bees  are a typeof bumble bee that nest in holes in trees and have been using nesting boxes. We had some last year, when  we emptied the box, there was no honeycomb, everything had moved on. The new queens had mated and gone into hibernation,the workers and drones had died.

If there is no growth on them by now, they are dead. There should at least be leaves, even if they are not sending up new shoots. Take them back and get a refund.
