White splashed cosmos

Posted: 22/08/2016 at 14:23

One of my cosmos plants looks the same.I put it down to my young grandson spraying it with the hose pipe in very sunny weather. Mine look like sun scorch patches The plants next to it escaped with only very slight damage. The new leaves produced since then are perfectly ok. He thought he was doing me a favour bless him. Hope yours will be ok.

My very positive thoughts and good wishes go to you. Big cheers for that g and t. Gma T

Thankyou so much for quick reply, will get onto that tomorrow after the trip to buy the product / Products. I really thought the hedge would have to come out which would have been a huge problem for us. 

Thank you you again Eddy truely appreciated. 

More Privet Problems

Please can anyone identify what the spots are and what I can do about them

Most of the leaves have small silvery /pale brown spots surrounded by a largebrown/ purplelish larger circle.

These spots have affected the whole 40ft privet hedge at the bottom of the garden.

Will the new leaves be OK ?

Will I be able to save it by spraying it if so what would be recommended.

Any help will be gratefully accepted, I am really worried the whole hedge will have to come out.

Many thanks in anticipation   

Strawberry babies

paper clips great idea. I won't complain about the "rubbish" kept just in case in the draw in the garage any more. Such a useful stash. Strawberry harvest not very large with two baskets but maybe next year I will try again... Luckily the slugs haven't found them yet.

 Hi All, my first time at strawberry baskets too, with the same problem. OH made me some wire hooks shaped like a number two to put into pots and hang from the side of the baskets. I will try to post some pics to explain better. As FG and BH said they don't take long to develop roots.
