Pallets

Posted: 24/05/2016 at 21:42

Hi GWRS and Aster, I've only just seen your posts. The pallet planter hasn't been planted up yet My partner lined it with thick polythene both sides befores he filled it and it's got loads of drainage.


The plan is to plant it with some night scented stock, phlox, maybe aubreita if it worked. he plants I'm thinking of might be able to cope with drier condtions.


I hadn't considered adding any of those crystals,I don't know what you mean about wicks?


I have a few small pots of the stock so will have a go and start to plant it up and will let you know how I get on

Plant ID needed please

If they are outside the only thing I can think off is that they haven't been hardened off or frost maybe?

Not long switched on. Enjoyed listening to Kate Adie and the bit about the Somerset nursery. That guy has a great job!

That's good news Dave. I've always grown for insects but this year have been growing in particular for these

I get this a bit on my young plants. I tend to just pick the leaves off and dispose of them I do move my affected plants sometimes to a move ventilated spot, not sure if this makes any difference at all. Think I might have read something along those lines

So far so good with my new one, I'm checking it everyday as it was about this stage or maybe when the flower spikes were forming that they arrived last year. I'm sad to hear that they are back for you Magnolia, I'm hoping it was a one off  thing.


The plant is looking really healthy and liking it's shadier spot. Will be giving the spray a go if they come back, squishing but only with gloves on!

Sedum help please

Pleased to report that all my sedum needed was a more sunnier spot. Looks loads happier and there's lots of new shoots and leaves growing. Excellent I think I will have flowers for the bees this year as planned.
