frosted jade plant

well,if you take a few leaves that are not affected you may grow some more,its sad when you lose a plant but do try and see if you can bring it in leave it alone for awhile and who knows it might come true.sometimes it does.

This one I have saved a few times from fate mainly over watering or draughts but I have many replacements they are easy to do although it takes time to get big.hope yours heals.

no,but it sounds interesting,I am madly trying to grow the common type in pots now as the slugs get them if i grow them in the border.But changing the subject,at the hospital near me they have a beautiful foxglove tree,amazing flowers on it when it blooms.

Wildlife friendly suggestions for bare fences....

I have grown in one part to cover a boring fence a evergreen plant that came from  a flower arrangement against it.I think its a kind of variegated privet.any how it grew espaliered across the fence on its own and I just clipped it to keep it neat and in line and it makes a good cover.
