MrsGarden hope you got good customer service ay costco. I'm taking my car to Clari next time

Supposed to be raining heavily here according to BBC

Light rain overnight according to world weather forecast.

Fairy you cheated and viewed Chicky with your wand.  Not happy to say but my world weather thing says you are going to get wet tonight.

Where are the away team ? Too stuffed with cake & icecream to thinks.

Hi all, clouded over here mid morning and about six blobs of rain. Had hoed and loosened soil in dry areas ready for a soaking

Runners, and other climbing beans, French & barlotti whose names elude me now planted. Courgette area now ready. Cumbers having their first night in GH still in smallish pots, need to slow them down a bit, too cosy in conservatory. Some for friends delivering on Sat'.

Some kale planted and covered with netting, taken great delight in watching cabbage whites attempt to get at them  rest of them & rocket will get done another day. Need to sow direct stuff but not happening today.

Few Summer bulbs planted to fill gaps, need to plant out white cornflowers and more cosmos, but had enough time on my knees.

Still waiting for poppy to burst open. They do say a watched pot doesn't boil

Do you think they'll let Panda on the train with a barrow full of plants  LIke Verdun says, hope they are having good weather & fun.  We might see Chicky on tele', but we don't know what she looks like

Good morning 14C no breeze but does look like it might rain.

Have a great time at Bressingham & Chicky at Chelsea.

What is affecting my courgettes?

Posted: 19/05/2014 at 20:58

Catherine it did look a bit like mosaic disease but a bad case  I dunno how you've got it but I'd scrap the lot and start again still time for new cumbers & courgettes.

Toms & chillies develop some virus if in contact with nicotine but can't help about mosaic disease.  

Hope you have another go and get some crops

What is affecting my courgettes?

Posted: 19/05/2014 at 20:43

Catherine I haven't seen this before and I grow courgettes, to me it looks like a virus. I can't see anything in my book regarding courgettes and problems that looks quite like yours.

I would destroy the plant ( don't compost it) and thoroughly disinfect your pot and windowsill. It isn't too late to grow another courgette.

Best I can offer
