Burn all infected plants.

When I was a student in Manchester, I was warned to always lock the doors(on my morris minor) before stopping at the traffic lights next to the Harp lager place, near Moss side, because the locals had a habit of getting into any empty passenger seats  if you had to stop at the traffic lights.

I loop the handbag straps over the gear stick.

Is this blight?

Lay newspapers over them at night, if you have no fleece. We had a frost last night, and another forecast for tonight.

If you dig it out, incinerate on site. Do not transport it, or put it in the bin.

My sweet peas are usually over by end of August. If I sow some late do you think they will still be in flower early October? The current batch is ready to go out.

We're doing no bridesmaids. no speeches, No goody bags, no presents.

Just a ceremony,then a dinner then an evening disco and buffet with a quiet room for the oldies. Vase of garden flowers on the tables,  and possible a cake from M & S. They do good fruit cake. I'll let him off his diet for one day.

Provado ultimate bug killer. One spray now will last the season. It is systemic and kills the larvae that cause so much damage. I dont repeat spray, so the insecticide has worn off by the time the flowers open. If you see any red beetles, squash them.They are alien invaders and have no predators in UK.
