Sad hydrangea :-(

I'd just say it's stressed being re-potted, remove the flowers & keep well watered and next year you'll have a beautiful flower display.  Mine did exactly the same last year, beautiful plant from garden center re-potted & wilted but it recovered and this year it's beautiful.  Shame we have to wait a whole year though!

Oh no, lily beetles are back!

Last year when they first appeared I thought they were beautiful,  I had never seen or heard of them before.  They also made sweet squeaking noises.  I left them.  Wrong!  They destroyed my lily plants.  Little buggers. This year I am on patrol and 3 days ago found 3.  Got my HEDRIN squirted them and they have gone.  So far no more sightings but I must look 5/6 times a day.

Had a brainwave today. Had some left over HEDRIN (eradicates and suffocates head lice) and squirted it on individual beetles. BINGO! They rolled over and suffocated. So if this is kind to kids heads it is gentle on lily leaves.  Also, NO organo-phosphates.    Hopefully I'll have some beautiful lilies this year. I can't afford too much Hedrin so when I run out I'm going to try Olive Oil with a syringe on them.
