thanks everyone for the advice

Simple question (hopefully) but cant seem to find an answer on google... If a perennial has mildew, does that mean the mildew will come back next year or because the plant dies back over winter will that get rid of it?

Thanks for the replies, I will bring it in the house for a few days and see if the warm perks it up, if not I will feed it....  fingers crossed

Seems to have enough water when I got it out of its pot... I could try feeding it, just looks sick... might be a virus or something

I need some dahlia advice - one of my plants has been wilting and noticed that some of the leaves have brown patches appearing. Had a look over it and cant see any bugs and popped it out of the pot and no bugs in there either. Its kept in a greenhouse over night and out side in the day. I thought it was maybe full sun making it wilt but I have put it in a bit of shade and it still wilts, so I don't thinks its happy. Does anyone know what might be causing it and what the cure might be?

Hi Ryan, just seen this thread after looking for ways to sell some of my own plants. How did it go with your selling and did eBay work?

Hi all, does anyone know what this plant might be? I ask because I have it labeled as being Helenium Autumn Lolipop and it obviously isnt that, think I got sent the wrong thing

Thanks for the reply - sounds like a sprinkler hose would be better for deep flowerbeds


Soaker hoses

Hi all, I have been looking at soaker hoses, there seems to be the sort of porous ones and the more rigid ones with holes in. Has anyone tried these, any good, recommend them? Do they soak a decent area or do you just get a line of wet earth where the hose lies?

I have quite deep flower so cant reach over with the watering can to get to everything and now things are fully grown I cant step inbetween the plants either, so its the normal hose every cople of days but lots of that water must just evaporate in the sun when its on the leaves. I need something that I can snake around the beds to get water to the ground.

Any advice is helpful.
