Yes they can be a pain! My parents had one in their garden and it sent up new trees between paving slabs! Very lovely autumn colour though

I’m growing some salvia viridis blue seeds in my unheated greenhouse. They are doing really well and about 2 ins tall. They’re in a seed tray.


Should I pot them on and leave in the greenhouse over winter? if I leave them in the tray I think they will get leggy.The advice on the packet says  cover seedlings if planted out or keep in a cold greenhouse, but nothing about putting on.

The nibbling always stops as soon as it reaches the red part of the petals. I find this curious as to why the insect will not eat the red part.

 Yes that's what I was wondering too!

This is one that has its white edges but as you can see something has started on the bottom ones already. The one at the top has had them all eaten.

Well I did wonder about earwigs Mike, but I can't see any at all, and why would they just choose this particular one? I've got lots more but thankfully they don't seem to like them!

i have a lovely dark pink dahlia which should have white edges to its flowers, but something is just nibbling the white edges of the petals, leaving the dark areas!


i can't see anything on the plant at all that might be doing this, and none of my other dahlias have this problem. I'll post a photo tomorrow when it's daylight.


Any ideas please?
