Runner beans

Posted: 15/07/2014 at 11:22

I've noticed this year that very few of my runner bean flowers are setting.  There is very little evidence of bees or hoverflies this year.  Is there anything I can do to improve the set rate apart from getting a bee hive?

Is This Honey Fungus?

I don't think it is, too early in the year for honey fungus to appear.  They are too pale.  Honey fungus has a collar on the stem on the underside which is a creamy white.

I would suggest that it is an Allium but not sure which one

They could be hungry.  Outside plants need feeding and watering just like ones in greenhouses.

I don't think those are vine weevil eggs as they are laid in the soil.  They look more like caterpillar eggs.  You can get a treatment for vine weevil that you water the pots with, it's active against the larva.  There are several brands available so you now have an excuse to visit the garden centre

Sounds like Clarington's bosses are heading for a whole heap of issues.  There are rules about making people redundant and I don't think their approach is following any of them.

Suggestions please - shrubs for shade!

Escallonia does well in shade in my garden which is on clay

Honeysuckle Problems

Looks like powdery mildew.  Can be caused by humid conditions or dry soil.  You could spray with a fungicide

Help needed identifying these seedlings.

The first and third are weeds.  I know the first by the name of Fat Hen but do not know the other name.  I aggree that the last picture are Rudbeckia
