Fungus growth ? It could be scale insect ( lots of em ) - these are releasing their egg sacs at the mo and kinda look like small fungus growths. They do tend to mass at the base. Just remove them using water and cotton wool. And, if the tree is in good condition it should be ok.

Does the fungus look like this ??

Yes, reduce the amount of sun it receives. Your pond must be in full sun if the problem is bad. First, pull it all out with a net, then shade the pond with either tall plants or some sort of screen.

I have two ponds, one located in full sun - loads of duckweed. It stays cos I like it.


the other is shaded, this one never grows any more then a dinner plates worth.

Can anyone tell me what these plants are

First one, looks like creeping buttercup.

Need a new garden

There's only one way to approach this, and that's right at front. Put your marigolds on, get several buckets for different uses such as weeds, rubbish, poo, etc. Measure out your first square metre and get stuck in. After your done clearing it, have a break and admire your hard work. You never know, you may be inspired to do another.

Little and often is the key here, it's surprising how fast the weeds will go even if you spend 30 - 1hr a day, everyday for a month.

Take a deep breath and get ready to do battle with a smile on your chops. I remember those feelings, when faced with a similar problem many moons ago. You can do it, I did !!

Can anyone identify this tree please?

It's grown 10-12 ft in 2-3 years. Wow !!! That's incredibility fast. Cannot give an positive ID, but it looks suspect to me.

Lady birds

My garden was crawling with ladybirds about 2 months ago. Now there are not. However, to my surprise the garden has now become a nursery for their larvae. Which is great because they have a bigger appetite for aphids then their parents.

Took this today. 7-spot ladybird by its markings.
