Hi

Yes did the first post in the wrong section I think so I duplicated but couldn't see how to remove the first! Anyway, thanks for the suggestion. they are definitely not waterlogged as they are in a really good raised bed with free draining soil. Oddly my older lupins are doing much better in my clay soil elsewhere. I'll look up anthracnose. There's definitely no rotting, just the young leaves' stems go curly like a pigs tail and then die.

I have three fairly young lupin plants that I've put into a raised bed in order to get them to grow on before I put them in their position in the flowerbed, to hopefully give them a chance from slugs etc.

They were all growing well but now the big leaves are all flopping to the ground and the small young leaf stems are curling around and then dying off. What's going on? I can't see any slugs or snails (even at night) so not sure what's getting at them. 

thanks

Rudbeckia and Echinacea

Posted: 20/06/2014 at 12:06

Thanks for all these. I have some known echinacea and some known rudbeckia and they basically look the same with similar leaves.  However thanks to your helpful link I can see that the echinacea purpurea has pinkish stem bases while the rudbeckia does not. Unfortunately the echinacea white swan does not as I have some of those that are known. Hopefully I've got them all sorted now. Thanks!

Rudbeckia and Echinacea

I've got a number of rudbeckia and Echinacea plants and have been trying to put them in clumps but I now can't tell which is which. Is there any way to tell them apart before they flower?

Tried both those and neither came up with anything! Guess just not around this year. Shame, such a nice plant.

Pot probably did get saturated in the winter but it is good free draining soil and the pot is on stilts. Tree seems firm in pot. Will wait a bit and hope it shows sign of life. I've given it some seaweed feed. How do you know if you have vine weevils without leaves?

Yes good idea!  trouble is the little blighters only come out at night. Need to borrow a dog to let loose every half an hour through the night!
