Its Lisianthus

My lilac tree has developed razor type cuts on the edge of its leaves ??

You don't need to do anything. The bees have just taken those for their nests and whilst it looks odd it will not harm your plant. When you described the damage as cuts I imagined they were slashes in the leaves so hats off to Mark who got it right.

Small dahlia flowers

A little tip if you would like to cut some for indoors, you must pick the dahlias when the blooms are just completely open as they will not open from buds in water.


For planting out, dig a hole a little larger than the pot but only as deep as the soil in the pot. The soil in the pot will then be level with the soil you backfill the hole with. Water in and feed in a few days. I just use tomato food for mine.

Leaf cutter bees make perfect little circles round the edges of leaves so I'm not sure that they are the culprits if these look like razor cuts.
