What is catching your eye?

have checked out Lathyrus chloranthus, annual and non scented, so perhaps an unsweet pea.

 but,in the search, found a site I'd never seen before.

Not a recommendation but I love to find a new seed supplier

I was a bit underwhelmed with Natchtvlinder Yvie, not enough flower power. But maybe I didn't give them what they wanted.

I like that lathyrus Edd, is it a perennial?

The climbing dicentra is great punkdoc, a lovely shade plant. Copes with anything except hot and dry. One of mine  had its roots under water for ages last winter and flowered for weeks this year.


Weed killer on allotment... Which to use

Let the growth expand a bit before you spray, the more green stuff it has to work on the more effective it is.

I think I would have the whole lot removed. It will be a recurrent problem as long as it stays, both from rapid growth at the top and roots.

Dying Eleagnus!

Posted: 02/01/2015 at 14:02

I've had dying back problems with these eleagnus, even the non variegated version. I cut one back to stumps and it regrew, so far so good. You need to watch it even harder for reversion to green after that.

I would doubt Vine weevil or any bug but have no better suggestion
