what is it?

Sorry Jennifer I can't blow up the pics to get a closer look, I get a blank page instead. I'm also having trouble loading pictures however so I don't know if this is a GW problem right now or not.

Trouble loading pictures

Hi everyone, is anyone else having trouble loading up pictures today? I've tried twice now on two different computers on two different operating systems and I'm getting the same thing each time, inside the box where the picture should be is a weeny teeny blue box and that's it. 

Tomatoes

Posted: 21/08/2014 at 13:21

My tomatoes are appaling this year. Barely any fruit and what's there is slow to grow and so far I have precisely 1, yes 1, tomato that actually has any colour other than green. To be honest I'm not going to bother with tomatoes anymore, unless I can grow them under cover, in a controlled environment. The weather in the UK is just too unreliable to grow tomatoes successfully outdoors. Or maybe its just the weather conditions in my garden, which on any given day I swear are completely different to any one elses. This morning for example it was cold enough outside to see your breath. In August?!

The leaves do still look like my campanula to me but yours is a much more established plant that mine so its possible its something entirely different with very similar looking leaves. Someone will know for sure.

what is this plant?

I only brough my campanula's a week or so ago as well from guy on local market. Not impressed. Won't be buying from him again. Not being harsh, its not the first thing I've brought from him that's curled up its toes within a week or two. I'll stick to garden centre reductions from now on, all of those are doing fantastically well.

The flowers usually Shutterfly, looks like you're going to have a battle with that

 

Your picture 2 looks like my campanula's right now, all the flower heads going brown and dropping off but the leaves look the same as mine. They're the only bit doing OK right now.

Ooh if it keeps moles at bay I'm interested, I think!. Am not having good thoughts about moles right now. Little bleeders. Aren't Euphorbia's all toxic on the skin though? I know its terribly wimpy and cowardly but I don't grow anything Euphorbia for that reason, I just find it easier to not have it around that way I can't forget and get caught out. Anything else said to keep moles at bay (apart from spearing or clubbing them that is!)?

Old and tangled Lilac - what to do?

Posted: 23/07/2014 at 14:39

Your Lilac tree looks somewhat like mine! I'm going to have a go at tidying it up but no chance of taking it down, landlady wouldnt appreciate it me thinks! Thing is I love it, it still flowers and is just about the most beautiful thing in my garden when it flowers so I wouldnt want to lose it anyway, I just wish it would smarten itself up a bit!
