Cabbage White Netting

Yes. too optimistic 

Help needed!

Did you remove windows 10,Northern Lass? apparently you have the option for one month if you don't like it.

I have encountered one problem with 10, using Edge, I cant upload photos on this site, but that could be me!

Came back into Chrome and photos working fine so not the fault of the site.

I like the fact that it corrects grammar, puts in apostrophes where needed, the quote facility works fine as before, 

If you bought a new computer now it would have windows 10 already on it and you wouldn't think about it, there just too much negatives around.

Windows 8 will be obsolete at some point then its buy a new one or pay for upgrade.

You wont find one more untidy than mine, I can never keep on top it, more wildlife areas than tidy bits! 


Cabbage White Netting

I wouldn't remove the net, I would replace it with the very fine mesh, the type they put round scaffolding, this is the perfect time for caterpillars to completely strip your cabbages, not to mention the droppings they do on them. 

I bought some from Amazon, not expensive but I think the scaffolding stuff could be even cheaper.

Good results from seed exchange

Gardengirl, is that buddleia the old bog standard purple or the dark wine colour, I haven't got any plain purple, but they shoot up everywhere and it could have been seeded by a bird. Glad the fuchsias are ok, watch out for vine weevil!

My collected seeds from the Cleome were twice the size of the ones in the packets, so I am pleased they turned out ok because I didnt grow them this year!

how to save my tree

Conifers have a shorter lifespan than broad leaf trees, maybe they have come to their end.

That big ones if far too big for a small  town garden, Can you plant a nice one in its place, something pretty, blossoms fruit?

Have the roots filled the 6inch pots Jan?, glad they are looking healthy, if you see them wilting a bit, check for vine weevil, they just love fuchsias.

Lovely, Flowerlady.. were they my own collected seeds or a new packet? they certainly look strong.

Stinging nettles in a pot

I agree with the above, I have loads of nettles everywhere here, never seen a butterfly on them, I think they use the road hedges and field margins, grow some nice bee and butterfly friendly plants, looks much nicer.

Awful weather here, cant see the end of the garden for thick mist, heavy rain and thunder claps.

Could do some much needed house work, yesterday I cleaned eight sets of windows and the patio doors. All frames and sills washed. Now need to get the hoover out, Yuk, lets sort out next Springs seeds instead.

Have a good day all.
