Hello everyone,

My Lysimachia punctata have finished flowering for the season and are now just tall green but barren plants. Do I need to cut them back now? Or just leave them to die off on their own? I've had a scout on the internet but can only find out about pruning. Help please, thank you.

gardeningfantic, due to wasps I've done war dances in the street, waiting for a bus, you name it lol and I've had some very strange looks too I can assure you (but no offers of help!). I swear these things know I don't like them, they always make a bee line for my head or chest area (moths as well) and if a spider can appear as if by magic behind me on the wall they will! They're all out to get me

You think that the word polycarbonate might be scaring people off?! I don't know about that but I hope you get the answers you're looking for.

Thanks Dove, I really shouldn't have admitted all of that should I?! I'll definitely have a look through the link (after a stiff drink of course!) and learn to be a big brave girl! And point taken about being frightened instead of interested. One thing I do know though is that if I'm going to put myself amongst all of these things I simply have to learn to live with them and understand them as this is their environment and I'm trying to live in it so deep breaths and I'm plunging in there!

So many people this year having trouble with their tomatoes not ripening, mine included. Its got to be a weather thing and lack of heat at the optimal times. I'm hanging in there with mine for a bit longer, although I've today gone out and taken off any trusses with really small immature fruit so it can concentrate on ripening (hopefully) and not growing. I was advised on here other day that if thst they still haven't ripened when the temp drops to the low teens daily to just bring them inside to finish off. Good Luck Lesa

EllieL - if only it was anything that wriggles or creeps lol I scream like a girl if a moth comes anywhere near, I don't do spiders, I'm not keen on wasps and bees make me nervous! Honest to god I am the wimpiest wimp that ever lived lol Why the heck did I move to somewhere so green and bug laden?! hehe

Hard to believe the little beggars can get through the nets. Guess we're going to be a nation of loony tune people running around our gardens swatting and squishing lol
