Nobody makes light of it. Everyone has said take care, 

There are lots of dangers out there; eg stupid drivers, be aware, use common sense and take care.

Autumn come early or mystery disease?

My birches haven't done that this year. It's been dry but not hot so they've been OK, but I've seen them like it every hot and dry year since I planted them. I lost some when they were young but the ones that survived are still going strong around 20 years later.

The mahonia looks a bit depressed in hot and dry as well. I don't grow the others

Mystery illness

They do regrow if you cut them back to nothing but the beetles come back next year so not particularly helpful.

I had 2 of these shrubs, the beetles didn't visit foir years then turned up and destroyed one. The other they don't seem interested in  so far

Yes, that's the one. I'm being very impressed with them.

Don't forget they are annuals

The person that gave them to me said they self seed but I shall be collecting some.

Hi Lyn

All the digitalis may have been mine.

If the laevigata flower with rather flabby looking yellow flowers instead of lively orangey brown, sorry, that's grandiflora.

I can tell them apart in leaf if you need to know. I knew mine were grandiflora but when I planted them I was left with a label saying laevigata

You can't beat a really well organised nursery system

Hello Snoodle,

Not worth keeping. They won't be fully developed as seeds and would never germinate. They will just rot. Are there any left on the plants to have another go later?

What is this flower?

Malva moschata, musk mallow maybe
