Caterpillars on my blueberries

Posted: 02/08/2017 at 17:02

Hi Bob, thanks for your reply, I did notice back in October at least one leaf was curled round and there was a web weaved in it. I guess that was the culprit.

i will check it out next year and look more closely, I had a bumper crop this year so I guess I can afford to be a bit relaxed about it, however I will be on guard next year.

thanks again.

Caterpillars on my blueberries

hi people can anyone tell me how or where some tiny green caterpillars came  from on my blueberry bushes.

i have just been picking the berries and have found quite a few of them wriggling away, inbetween the berries, obviously enjoying the crop.

im thinking maybe next year I need to look out for them earlier and deal with them before they start to increase.

Im happy to share some of my fruit as long as they don't destroy too much or eat to much of my crop.

Can anyone tell me a bit about them and how to deal with them earlier in the season, thanks

Hi, Dovefromabove,  thanks for the reply, but I m not an expert but having spent days on research of this plant, I have since found out it's a Seseci Gummiferum, common name is Night Carrot

I don't know if Angelica is anything to do with it but, thanks anyway.

Sweet potatoes

Posted: 07/07/2017 at 17:25

hi, does anyone know about growing sweet potatoes, I have grown six slips since March and as you can see they are doing well. I haven't fed them yet I'm just keeping the warm and watered. My questions are, What to feed them with and how often? and as you can see they are spreading out so do I prune them or leave them?

Strange bites on my Cana leaves

Thanks Alan and Dovefromabove, 

Alan, it's amazing isn't it, I would never have guessed it was one hole made before the leaf unfolded, that is really amazing but makes perfect sense, thankyou.🤔

Yes Dovefromabove,

I think the snails would be great at Origami, thankyou.😀

Does anyone recognise this tree

This small tree was outside our building whilst on holiday in the south west of England, I could not find anyone who could tell me the name of it, so if anyone recognises it I would appreciate its name, thanks, sorry the photoes are sideways, no idea why
