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.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 22/05/2016 at 20:48

Done a little bit this afternoon, the sun came out for a bit I know what you mean about the green stage Vic, same here. I got rid of most of the white honesty in one bed today, mostly over and taking up loads of space

Rediscovered a couple of slightly stunted ruddies in there. Got a few things potted up into bigger pots and a few irises have come up in one of the layered spring bulbs pots
