Basil

They're only black 1/3rd of the way up from the soil and they're still producing new shoots on that black section and the tops. Hmm. I'll give it another month. see how it fairs.

I have a basil plant which I think was over watered as the stems at the bottom have turned black. It has new sprouts at the top so it hasn't died fully, however, all the new leaves appear to fold over length ways instead of turning out flat. 

Any advice?

 

What is this and is it salvageable?

Not really Fairygirl. I think it may be a waste of time trying to salvage it as I'm not that keen on that type of hedge. 

Now that's have a small two foot gap where this was underneath the tree canopy, what can you suggest to replace it. The area is a small soiled border against a red brick wall. It will have little to no sunlight as it is shaded by the tree canopy during the spring to autumn. Ideally something with color would be good.

Thank you for that Fairygirl. I tried uploading it a few times and  it always came upside down. Bizarre. If it is Spotted Laurel, I may struggle to find a space for it in the garden as I have little use for hedges. Unless it could be shaped nicely and kept under control.

Not sure why it is appearing upside down.

This plant was underneath a tree and started to whilt very quickly. It was planted there by the previous owners of the house. I've taken it out of the soil and re-potted it to see if it could be saved. I have no idea what it is and whether or not the yellow spots are disease. Any help would be great. 

Im trying to get a full list of everything in the garden so that I can look after them better.

jasmine not flowering

Posted: 08/07/2013 at 13:13

Mine has only recently flowered as of a few days ago. I think it's going to flower a lot later than it should by all accounts this year.

I found these underneath the leaves of a small section of  Trachelospermum jasminoides. I've removed this section of the plant in fear of more issues if I left it and just removed what ever these little pesky fellas are. 

I will add that I am very much an amateur who has only recently taken my garden seriously after moving in last October. Any advice as to what they are and how to deal with them would be great fully received. 

On a secondary note, Hello to everyone on the forum.
