Hi all, I am just curious as to whether any of you know why my dianthus all died over winter, completely brown and lifeless. One of them was a pinks too and that also died. I didn't think these would die from cold weather??? Any ideas?? Thank youuu. Kay x

Hi guys, one year later!! and I will post you a picture of the pineberries tomorrow. Doing really well. I have them in my plastic greenhouse and as they are female plants, I am using self pollinating strawberry plants to cross pollinate them to enable fruiting! I've got sooooo many flowers already!!

This may sound a silly question guys but seeing as you're discussing melons, how exactly do they grow??? If that makes any sense... x

It's good to leave the dead flower heads on over winter, however, this is because they will protect the new growth for the following year. But yes, you may take them off now

fritillary flowers

It will definitely be lily beetle!! They liked to hang out on fritillaries and then move on to lilies if you have any?? I have a couple types of fritiliries, and then I have asiatic lilies and regal lilies. I have actually got toad, calla lilies and lily of the valley too! Haha. I personally use provado ultimate bug killer but I know a lot of people would prefer not to! It definitely gers rid of them though!!!!
