Strange leaf? growing from the aphical meristem of apple seedling

Posted: 11/12/2013 at 10:39

It doesn't look like an apple seedling to me. Apples don't have serrated leaves like your seedling.

Thanks, I used a Pentax *istD DSLR with an old manual focus 100mm macro lens.

Talkback: Grey mould on soft fruits

Not impossible - http://www.winetrailwales.co.uk/temp/  I have enjoyed many's a bottle of Welsh wine and have a cellar full of superb English fizz going back 20 years. Just made a gallon of wine myself with a mix of greenhouse grapes and next year's vinyard vines currently in pots. There are some benefits to being an exiled Scot living in the soft South .

What's this fatty?

Vine weevil. Not good. Not good at all. As you are lifting the tubers then the best course is to wash off all the soil and remove all grubs. Either squish them or feed them to the birds. Unfortunately if you found them in your begonias then they will also be present in other pots and you need to take action there too.

I would harvest now before they rot and dry the beans indoors. I collected the last of my Moonlight pods yesterday which hopefully will give me plenty of seed for next year.
