What's eating my clematis flowers??

Posted: 16/05/2017 at 13:36

Found my culprit!! Another rehoming!! And I wondered how the clematis could support the weight of a snail as it's very floppy but it's a dinky one!

Is this a lily beetle caterpillar- should I remove it?

thanks for all your help!

2 Tomato seedlings & 1 courgette died after potting on-

Posted: 14/05/2017 at 15:37

hi! 


I have found  that 2 Tomato seedlings (different types) have withered where the stem comes out of the compost resulting in the plant collapsing/ dying after being potted on about a week ago. Something similar has happened to a cougette plant I potted on. 


Ive never had this happen before....not sure if I handled them roughly (don't think so) or used incorrrct compost? (Mixture of garden soil/ compost & well rotted manure all mixed up from the garden veg patch) others are doing ok with same mix. Last thing is they're in a new unheated plastic greenhouse (palram) but this isn't the same as them wilting due to lack of water.


has anyone else had this happen?


thanks : )

Oh no! 


Can they kill it? 


Is there anything natural I can use? So far my gardens chemical free- that's why I bought the lady birds when I thought it was aphids...


I guess they don't eat the scale bugs then? 


ive been giving it seaweed once a week to try & bolster it up... 


thanks for your help : )
