Are Brugmansia (Angels Trumpets) poisionous

Posted: 21/06/2016 at 21:56

I've got half a greenhouse full. I've also got digitalis and some castor oil plants.  Not to mention the Aconitum and the Opium poppies. In fact half an apothecarys chest full.

They're fine as long as you don't eat them.

or feed them to the old man or the PITA next door neighbour

Courgette plants

The leaves are the powerhouse that feed the fruit (courgettes),so leave them on.There will be no frosts now, so it can go outside in a bigger space.

Apple tree pest

Yes, I would say Codling moth. Use pheromone traps from when flower buds start to open. Hang fat balls in trees to encourage blue tits.

Does anyone know what this is please?

Is this Japanese Knotweed

I have it too.Snowberry. Bit invasive but it looks pretty with all the berries on.

What are these please?

The bottom one with the reddish new leaves is an ash tree seedling, get it out. 

Middle one looks like a peony

Top one a cotoneaster. At least two of those (1& 3) will have grown from seeds dropped by birds sitting on the tree.
