Dying lupin

Posted: 03/08/2014 at 21:05

My lupin leaves have developed white powder on the leaves, it seems to have gone all floppy too, what causes this?

Bizzie B and Marion, what lovely photos you both have, your flowers look lovely , my first poppy seed has germinated , waiting for quite a few more yet, and my tomato plants are nearly growing through the roof, they've gone mad , had to order a bigger green house as mine is only 3ft tall.

Went to Hebden Bridge classic care rally, it's a village between Todmodden and Halifax, the market was on too, my husband saw the plant stall and said " ho no not more plants" , so a managed to stop myself from buying any , it was showers in the morning then sunshine in the afternoon and went very warm too, a lovely day all round .

Quick hello from me

Rain in the northwest west and plenty of it, got soaked yesterday when I got out of tesco's , so glad the garden is getting a good water and it's filling my water butt too, going to Hebden Bdridge tomorrow to a classic car rally, the weather man said its dry on Sunday (I hope) , keep you all posted

Thanks Marion for your advise, I will do that now, sounds like your insurance won't take too long, our insurance didn't take long and that's when the floods where going on, keeping my fingers crossed for you

Marion your flowers are looking gorgeous, so glad to hear the work to your conservatory is going to be done soon, Marion, I want to pick your brains again 

Two of my tomatoe plants have started flowering, did you say I need to brush the flowers at this stage? And am I right in thinking I've to feed them tomato feed now? .

Hi Bizzie B, yes the Aster are a single plant, I got a mix tray, they are not all open yet but the colours are lovely. Marion, I wish we all lived closer to you, I would help you out with your tomatoe plants, hope all gets sorted out quickly
