Hi - my fence faces northwest but gets the sun for an hour or so early morning this time of the year before the trees opposite get their leaves on.

I'm looking for a small (2-3ft w & h) plant, flowering mid to late summer with either yellow, white or pale coloured flowers which will stand out on this shady side.

The ground is fairly moist & I seem to grow most plants so think my soil must be fairly neutral/slightly acid.

Would appreciate any help.

Thanks

Jennie

Hi - if you've got a microwave do it in there so much easier & less messy

Hi - I seem to have an infestation of the above critters, they're just like sand hoppers only brown & they're all tucked in under pots etc. Having been on the internet I see they're not insects but crustaceans from OZ? I believe they must have been introduced with a plant/s but have got to silly amounts now & I want to know how to get rid of them. My neighbours do not have any.

I used RAID the fly spray on them the other day which worked but nearly caused me to expire with the smell!

Has anyone else got these pests & safely got rid of them & do they cause any damage in the garden?

As they jump about so much it's difficult to photograph!

Regards

Jennie

Curved runner beans

Posted: 02/09/2013 at 11:13

Mine seem to get caught up in the leaves & stems when they're young & so become curved.

On a different note does anyone else get a rash on their arms when picking the beans & know why? I do wear long rubber gloves but they still seem to get a rash. 

Sweet Peas

Please can anyone tell me what those tiny, tiny hair like insects, about a mm in length are all over the flowers of the Sweet Peas?

Have tried to drown them by duncking flowers in a bucket of water before taking them inside but they're tenacious things & were still alive & hanging on!

Hi - does anyone know where I can buy the above rose? I've surfed the net but just keep drawing a blank apart from this site & they don't advise where to buy it?
