Camellia and Honeysuckle

Posted: 03/06/2014 at 22:38

Both these plants have come on well. I left the Camellia alone and it has put on plenty of healthy new growth.

The Honeysuckle has grown tremendously but some of the older leaves seem to be turning black and yellow quite quickly due the black spot I think it has.

This doesnt seem to affect flowering though as its covered in flower buds at the moment

Purple/black spots on honeysuckle foliage

I would say it isnt Powdery Mildew. You would have white patches on the leaves.

The chap at the garden centre was right in suggesting Rose Clear as your honeysuckle has black spot, a disease that usually affects Roses.

Most Honeysuckle are quite vigorous so this doesnt tend to trouble them too much.

Neatness.....a swear word in the garden?

Posted: 26/05/2014 at 22:11

My garden is small enough to keep neat, although this is still time consuming.

I like to maintain some distance between plants, even if just a few cm, if only for airflow and to stop disease.

I like to see every plant reach its capabilities but sometimes its a little too much so I step in and 'tidy' them up

The Curse of the Rampant Weed.

Pull it up wherever you see it to weaken it, unfortunately it is extremely difficult if not impossible to eradicate completely.

Dahliettes.....?

Posted: 23/05/2014 at 12:37

Basically a dwarf Dahlia. They do produce tubers but nothing to write home about.

HELLO FORKERS!
