Music in the Garden

I'm probably one of those annoying neighbours Ashleigh  I often listen to Rihanna, Paloma Faith or Jessie J (or similar), although I am aware of our neighbours. My nan lives next door to a same age woman (grand 'ol age of 81!) and at my house we have a disabled child who can get distressed with loud noises, so I keep it down, and when he's a school I turn it up a bit

Is it possible that they killed a part and that induced coral spot? Just a thought.

That sounds really wierd. Nut, is it possible that they were eating a pest off the plant or something? 

age of sycamore tree

Well I've just read that they take between 20 and 50 years to reach full maturity And that is between 20-35 metres. They also live upto 400 years, so I'd say between 20 and 400 years. Not really a help I know, but it's something

Whoops, sorry Tracey!

I saw these on Beechgrove Gardens, that lady grew them and tasted them. I'm really wanting to try them, but I don't like melons or cucumbers, and you guys aren't singing their praises, so maybe I won't

Haha that's alright, I just hope I'm correct 

Help ID these plants, please

Yes, Zantedeschia, although it might not be. I believe they are poisonous, and can cause itching or burning. It may be an idea to remove it, they're actually quite expensive plants!

Quite possibly. Many leaves when touching something wet rot. I wouldn't put them in the GH, as they're fully hardy and quite forgiving. Trying watering directly into the soil, or if it rains, wiping the sides of the pot maybe? I hope thatd do the trick

I thought Hostas like a moist environment? Mine are in compost that's constantly wet And they do fine. They're from poundland, 4 for £1, and I can't resist a bargain!  If the leaves are constantly wet or touching the wet compost, then they may rot.
