Help! - What's eating my Catalpa?

don't judge by appearances. It's only nasty looking to you, its mother loves it. 


As Ladybird says (and she should know), they are carnivorous. They eat aphids. People buy them online to eat the pests in their gardens

Did you take any callicarpa cuttings Bob?

Harvesting seeds

Posted: 11/07/2016 at 13:50

when they're ripe and dry and loose on the seed head.


just snip off the whole head and put it in a paper bag, envelope or something non plastic til the seeds drop out.


If your summer is like ours in East Anglia I foresee problems with seeds rotting instead of ripening

Great idea ecokid. I'll see what I can find. A good antidote to the 'how do I kill it' threads.

I don't think that's white bryony. Never heard it called English Mandrake


I have white and black bryony, 2 species of bindweed and a proper mandrake. still not sure of this one.


The way the stem comes off the root in the first pic of the second batch looks wrong for bindweed.


The leaves are the wrong shape for White Bryony


I've had one plant of black bryony for years and it's never spread.


is there something we haven't thought of?
