what is this thats killing all our hedge and what can i do

The previous owner has cut the conifers back-they seldom resprout-the ivy then moves it but it does not kill plants on its own

Why are you pics on their side?-makes viewing so awkward

Ivy by the look of it

It is not killing anything

You can try digging it out or spraying with weed killer-but you will have to be persistent.

At the risk of stating the obvious-probably slugs or snails-it gets boring to blame the same culprit all the time but it usually is

Have you taken any precautions?

Runner Beans loss of leaves

It is too cold to be planting out runner beans-especially in Monmouthshire-but it is still slugs/snails-what makes you think it isn't-it nearly always is

Hardy fuschias are cut down to the ground in the Spring-so as has been said -do that

Not ideal-perhaps best bet is not to plant but leave in pots in a cold frame or sheltered spot to harden off and plant in 10 days or so

You will know better for next year

My runner beans are still in pots indoors(unheated shed) and are about 12" tall now (from pot to leaf) and leggy.

Can they be planted deep like tomatoes (so as to get a good rooting)?


No -doesn't work with runners -at that height you sowed far too early-a lot will only be sowing now-those need planting-but will sulk if nights are cold

Slug killer-blue pellets,wildlife friendly pellets, nematodes,go out at night and capture them,salt on them-loads of solutions-depends on what you want to use

Am no expert -but sometimes people take pictures on phones or i-pads- and the quality isn't always great and even get posted sideways-it doesn't help

One from a camera seems better.
