Lavenders in containers leaves going yellow

Posted: 12/07/2013 at 16:33

I'm pretty sure there was about 70% John Innes 2/3 and 30% multi purpose.

I put plenty of grit into the pots when they were planted up and when I water they seem to drain freely.

Could be a combination of too much water or nutrient  deficiency. How large is the container relative to plant?

Containers are terracota around 15inch diameter. The oldest plant is around 1.5 years old so I don't think they should be pot bound.

Hi,

I've got several lavenders in pots and on some the leaves are turning yellow.

I've read a couple of articles where it says this can be caused by under or over watering ...

Any idea which is more likely to be the case or could it be something else?

I tend to give them 2 or 3 good waters a week.

Thanks.

 

White Powder On Hardy Geraniums Stems.

Posted: 19/06/2013 at 19:20

Hi,

I've got several hardy geraniums this year that don't look too happy.

They are not new plants, they are all at least a couple of years old.

If you look at the stems some many of them are covered in a white powder which you can scrape off with your finger nail.

I had this last year but it only affected one plant.

Any idea what this is and how to get rid?

Thanks

Dead Head Alliums?

Posted: 10/06/2013 at 19:29

Should I remove the heads of alliums when they have flowered or just leave them?

I want to make sure I have another good display next year.

Thanks.
