Molly the Witch in trouble

Posted: 25/03/2016 at 18:15

What's going on here? Both my Mollys have a problem as do 2 of the second year seedlings of fidgets Blushed Molly. One of the victims must be 15 or 20 years old the other 5 or 6. It looks like a mould but may not be. I only have one other herbaceous paeony, peregrina, and that is unaffected.


 these have never been other than healthy before

I agree with Fairy, it will be hard to establish a shrub of that size. a smaller one will overtake it in a couple of years

Try everything, something will work. You can always take more cuttings when the growth is a bit less soft

Might be worth trying layering on the roof if you can get the pot secure.

I'd go with the cuttings, you never know when your neighbour might decide to hard prune the honeysuckle

Good re the foetida Philippa, the others will flower next year

I let them seed and keep young plants moving on, they tend to look a bit manky after a few years so I chuck them.

Re don't move a paeony, I read the story behind that somewhere Fairy, but it may have been another myth. 

I'll see if I can find it.

Who wrote the book Philippa. 

My legume roots stay in the ground but they've all got perennial plants growing out of them

Is that not true then, about the legume roots?
