Yellow is the colour.......

Posted: 28/03/2014 at 14:07

I'm not keen on too much yellow but this time of year it seems to be everywhere and after the dark, cold, miserable winter months I can appreciate it.

I had a yellow wall in my kitchen but changing it to olive green soon because the mocha colour it became is no better!

A landmine??!!

What's the weather like in your area?

Miserable, wet and windy this afternoon in north Notts after a dry start and really cold, too. Maybe we're going back to winter.

This was it last year, I hope it recovers sufficiently to look the same this year. They may not be unusual plants but I like them and I hope you have an abundance of flowers and berries, too.

Yes will feed and hope the yellow subsides, also can't prune because I don't want to cut off any buds that are forming. It has looked better!!

This is it, bit yellow and rough looking. There are a few near me and they are much greener and healthier looking.

Thank you all for the replies, my camera has gone walkabout!! It just looks really 'off' the leaves are a bit yellowy and the shape looks out of kilter somehow, like it's flopping, kind of wilting.

If camera turns up, I think little grandson has hidden it, I will put a picture up. In the meantime a feed and water.....looks so sad, poor thing.

I have a Pyracantha, it's an oldish one, as the above says, it looks a little bit poorly. I have looked at diseases of this plant and scab seems to affect flowers and fruit, neither present at the moment. Blight may be a possibility, I don't have a picture but will try later if necessary

Any other known problems? I quite like it and the birds love it.

Yes chicky it is Black Knight. I know a lot of people won't have them in their garden but if they attract butterflies then they're ok by me.
