Honeysuckle Problems

Posted: 07/07/2014 at 14:10

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

Advice Needed

It could be just a bit too early for loads of flower buds.  My dahlias are only just beginning to show may buds and I'm in the south of England. Stop pinching them out as the buds appear at the end of the branch so you may be removing them. I would just keep watering them, plants are normally very determined to flower.

It has the potential to take over spreading by runners and roots.  I'm trying to clear a bed of it at the moment

pests ID needed please!

The first two are Leaf Miner damage, loads of different types. According to the RHS there is no chemical control available.  The Hebe looks as if its been eaten probably by slugs and snails.

ID please

I'd say it's a Narcissus there are later flowing ones.

The final one is Soloman's Seal.  I know the first plant as Lambs Ears not sure what it's proper name is.

Japanese knotweed shoots & Mower contamination ?

Lupin from seeds

Move them when the roots are visible coming out from the bottom of the tray/pot.  When planting in the garden I would also scatter slug pellets to protect them as they are caviar for slugs and snails

Bay Tree trouble

Posted: 07/04/2014 at 16:40

It could be Bay sucker, the damaged areas dry up and turn brown.  Leaves may also curl up.  You may find small nymphs on the underside of the leaves. There is no cure, just remove the affected leaves.
