Stink horn fungi

You haven't smelt them. This is the first year that they have appeared and we've been here over 20 years.

Dovefromabove, thanks I've done that as far as I can, I was wondering whether the inclusion of some rotten wood debris had encouraged them.

It's the all pervasive rotten flesh smell that gets to me.

shrub I.D.

Could it be Ailanthus? They have pinnate leaves, grow into trees and sucker. I believe they are quite vigurous.

Over the last few weeks these fungi have popped up in the border. They are truly disgusting with a vile smell which comes to your attention first. Not only do they have a slimy cap the base consists of a jelly filled ball. I want to try and prevent these from reappearing any ideas?

Talkback: How to water your plants

You can buy a nozzle to fit onto an empty lemonade bottle, just screws on, which you then poke in the ground. I've cut a hole in the bottom to both fill and allow the water out.

Where have all the ladybirds gone?

Posted: 05/07/2013 at 22:34

Here in Norfolk I have yet to see any ladybirds, although I haven't looked too hard. Also, thank goodness fewer lily beetles, although I did catch a couple. I have seen a few blackfly. What has happened in the poast has been a rapid increase in aphids followed after a while by a corresponding increase in ladybirds, a bit of patience is required. However, for those without Green Gardener is excellent for all prdators including ladybirds. I particularly like their plum moth traps which are almost 100% effective. http://www.greengardener.co.uk

I too live in dry East Anglia but have a dampish shady side to the garden which is where it lived.
