My acer started to bud up and then turn in to full leaf as normal this year and then all the leaves began to wilt and drop it wasn't until i took a closer look that i realised the whole tree (it stands about 3ft by 1.5 ft wide) was absolutely covered hilt to crown in scale bugs.  I quickly turned to a pest spray and removed all the scale bugs with a wet cloth but all the leaves have now dropped and its looking like it does in winter. 

Did i not act quick enough have i lost it ????

I'd say that they need to be half buried at least and def warmer than the 8 degrees it currently is outside!

Cannas

Due to the crud weather and distinct lack of sun my cannas did not thrive sufficiently to flower.  Should i still cut them down and store for next year or will this harm the development of next years flowers?

New Delphinum???

Whilst walking around a garden centre on thursday night i was aware of an absolutely striking peachy coloured delphinum i think it was called Coral(e).  It was beautiful but i had left my money at home as i am lethal once i get started.

Since coming home i have been unable to find it anywhere or to gain any knowledge of its availablity.

 

If you know where i can find it in plant or seed please will you reply or email me

At one point as the back garden took so long to redesign we had been able to get our dogs to go to the toilet on command because they had to use the open front yard which of course was very public and not at all enclosed so was quite embarrasing having them pee and poop first thing in the morning in my jimmies so they had to hurry.

Wow - some excellent suggestions.  See three heads are better than one!

we have recently completely redesigned our garden dug it all back to scratch and we are left with one corner 4x8ft patch that is in dry shade on clay and is used by the dogs for toileting purposes.

They have been trained to use this area as we have a small garden and 2 children.

The dogs will only pee and poop on grass so we cannot gravel it but by the same token its currently an unsightly bald patch of mud where i doubt anything would grow any suggestions?
