wasps are nature's dustbin men, they tidy and clean up all the rubbish plus all of the posts mentioned above...

I agree that it's thrilling to see the exotics in their natural environment. Just returned from Peru where the orchids and the poinsettas were amazing.

Talkback: Dividing perennials

Posted: 28/11/2011 at 18:43
My daylilies are already quite tall, so if you have lots of growth on your plants lazygardener I'm not sure you'll be able to lift and divide without really damaging them. I'd suggest waiting until NEXT February/March, and dividing and replanting if conditions are not too cold or wait (delay a little if they are, but complete the job in March before new shoots develop too much). I'd always recommend that anyone gardening on heavy/clay/wet soil should delay dividing rather than doing this too early. Conditions will be warming-up through late March and into April, encouraging new root growth and fast establishment.

Talkback: The insects have gone berserk

Posted: 28/11/2011 at 18:43
Have seen a similar amount of insect life. Also have noticed the flowers that the bees love coming out earlier than last year. Out Poppies are out in abundance and from my photos last year this was towards the end of May as opposed to the end of April. So far the bees have not gone as berserk in our poppies as they did last year Cheers Murray

Ancient woodland is the best place to see bluebells in all their glory at the moment, you can find your nearest bluebell woods by going to and just typing in your postcode on the wood search!

Talkback: Dealing with aphids

Posted: 28/11/2011 at 18:43
I have 4 wisteria plants which are dotted around the garden...I know these plants often take forever to flower. Last year only the plant (3yrs old) on the SE side wall of the walled garden flowered (profusely). This year it looked to be covered in young flower buds (hundreds between 1 and 2-3 inches) and we waited in anticipation. It now looks dry, lifeless and bare and none of the buds has set flower at all...there is no leaf growth whatsoeve....rmeantime (ironically but thankfully) the nearest other wisteria (on a SW wall) has flowered beautifully (albeit not so profusely as the SE wisteria last yr) and it is lush and green with new leaf growth. I am puzzled and have researched as much as poss to discover the cause...I am aware that late frost may have played a part, but the other plants are doing fine....any ideas??

Talkback: Growing rhubarb

I've been waiting patiently to see the fruits of my labours planting all kinds of fruit last year. At last it's all paying off and I can see gooseberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants and plums. It's so exciting to see the plums which are on the tree I was given instead of an easter egg last year. Can't wait!

Talkback: Bank holiday gardening jobs

I will be weeding weeding and more weeding till all my dandelions are gone and have found that I have been taken over by brambles they have mysteriesly travelled from one end of the garden to the other!! Plus my maple tree has decided to give us a lovely show, all the flowers are now dropping every where and making a lovely mess, yellow snow!! But I love the tree and would never get rid of it. I am a tree hugger!
