Hollyhock and rust

Posted: 05/12/2016 at 23:15

This year my Hollyhocks got a bad case of rust. Stems, foliage and flowers were affected. The best it could manage was the flower bud opening a little before the rust killed it.


I wanted to know if I should dig them up and get rid of them?

Recommended pet (for cats) insurance?

Posted: 28/11/2014 at 23:50

First of all is there a pet insurance that covers teeth health? My cat supposidly needs some teeth taken out and anesthetic is needed, plus teeth cleaning. Insurance (well mine) being one of the biggest con merchants out there said its a grooming issue.

atm I'm with post office pet insurance but wanted to know if I'm missing out on better ones.

Its not Arum. It doesn't have berries as far as I remember.

Liriodendron I don't know if its a wild plant. It comes in different colours. It was featured on gardeners world or Chelsea flower show a few months back too.

Arg.. wish I remembered more.

No thats not the one. Its a plant you're unlikely to see at a garden centre.

Unfortunatly I don't have a picture. All I can say is it resembles a pitcher plant in a way.

Just a quick query as they love to drink from our pond

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

Posted: 17/06/2014 at 00:15

Learnt some plants shoot late spring whilst others in spring. I dug up a plant and left the it (with a good chunk of soil attached) by the fence. Why? I'm not sure.
