What is happening to the foliage on these 2 fuscias

Posted: 20/05/2016 at 15:55

That's the way, just pick off the grotty leaves,

if you cut it right back now it won't flower for ages, as it is now it will flower in about a month.

agree, I would cut all the outside garden ones right down to the ground, but I wouldn't cut yours back at all Ck, it's nice and bushy as it is. You could trim back the extra long bits and leave the middle.

Definitely Willowherb, snapdragon distinct shaped leaves sort of grey green and a bit heart shaped.

Plants (In Pots)

I wouldn't put any of the above mentioned  in 8" flower pots, cannas for one will split the pot.

good choices of plants but all better in the ground, or at least in very big tubs. My cannas, which I left out have not survived the winter and that's in Devon.

I am growing gherkins, they don't need pollinating, I am picking males off as soon as I see them.

Looks like Jasmine but in the bottom photo looks like a tomato plant.

Anyone else noticed you can now pinch the photos to enlarge?

pinching is now working on my iPad. Hold your index fingers both on the picture, push together then pull apart.

Ok, smartypants Lyn, how did you do that?  I havent really followed all the updates on the forum,

See original post

 Wasn't mentioned on the updates I don't think, copy it to your photos then pinch it apart. Although, I did manage to pinch it very briefly on the thread.

Close up it does look like Gorse to me.

Sorry to disagree  just a little bit Verdun, but I wouldn't go cutting those back hard if it isn't rust, check first, you can't mistake it, it looks like someone's dusted it with mustard power but more orangey.

just pick of the mankey leaves.
