Wooly Aphids

Posted: 01/06/2014 at 20:47

I have a problem with wooly aphids on my apple trees. Last year I rubbed them off with a brush but they are back again this year. Should I do something more like removing affected limbs? Will they eventually affect the tree? Thanks in advance.

I've been considering nematodes but not sure whether it's worth the outlay. I'm currently going out at night and putting them in a mayonnaise jar ready for a walk in the park the next morning. Scattering oats around has worked in the greenhouse, but I have a small rat problem in the garden so haven't tried them outside.

No ideas? Oh well, I've got some seedlings growing now so hopefully I'll find out once the true leaves appear.

Hi folks,

I've just uncovered a brown paper bag with some unknown seeds in it. I must have collected them at some point and made the fatal mistake of not labeling them. The seeds are quite distinctive so thought you fine folk may know what they are.

Thanks in advance.

Ha I never knew that they exploded! With the false caper I had before, I was given it with the assurity that it was a true caper. As I picked one of the pods though, some white sap appeared which gave me doubt. I tested some on my tongue and it started to burn so I researched it and found it was toxic.

I think with this new one I'll probably move it to my 'wild' garden as I don't think I want exploding plants in my vegetable patch.

Ah Euphorbia! Thanks, I thought it looked a bit like a False Caper I had once and aparently it's related. I'm not sure how it got there, I guess aliens is one possibility lol.

Cheers

Hi folks,

Can anyone help me ID this plant for me. It seems to have seeded itself in my veg bed. It looks familiar but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Ahhh that looks like it! Thanks Silver surfer!  For some reason I never considered the fruit to be a nut. I kept looking up things like crabapples and understandably didn't get anywhere.

Cheers

Hi folks,

Can anyone identify this tree for me? It's growing in a local park and appears to have some kind of fruit on it which I can't quite put my finger on. I've attached a picture below.

Cheers
