HELP! Weeds are taking over.

Posted: 06/07/2017 at 16:12

The weed you don't recognise is a dock.  If you use weedkiller you need to leave the dead foliage in place for a couple of weeks while the weedkiller kills the roots.  Looking at picture I think weedkiller is the way to go.  All those weeds have persistent roots which may regrow from tiny fragments.

Magnolia tree disease

It could be Honey Fungus.  I have a magnolia, half of which was killed by honey fungus but half continues to survive.  There is no cure for honey fungus.  To give the remaining branch the best chance give the tree a good feed and water.

Gunnera problem – leaves turning brown and holes appearing

Posted: 22/06/2017 at 16:55

I cannot imagine anything that would munch these very tough leaves.  I think the holes may just be where very crisp foliage has fallen out.  Gunnera leaves can be burnt by the sun which given the weather we have had may be the cause of the browning.

Brussels Sprouts and Greyhound Cabbages

Both are good sources for Cabbage White butterflies so be very vigilant for caterpillars or cover with netting.  Good luck.

Dove, I had a smart meter fitted by OVO but have since switched and the new supplier can't read it so back to doing manual reading.

We would still have to pay repair Buckingham Palace Hosta!  I don't suppose either the Queen or Prince Philip get a state pension.

Buckingham Palace actually is a tied house, we the nation it not the Queen. Therefore we should maintain it.  She does own Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral.
