You could be right Fairygirl!

Have sent the following to moderator:

Hallo, it seems that this Blog article and answers have somehow got onto the Forum, can you check it out, makes no sense on the Forum! Thanks.

Seems to be another glitch!

I've checked and every poster apparently is in Islington. Wonder when the spam for eradicating DWB will turn up!

Thanks Andyplant and fidgebones, I'll have a go in pots first then. Fingers X-d that they survive!

Lawn sand killed my herbs

I have successfully used aquarium sand, can be bought at large DIY stores with an aquarium section. Also, if you have neighbours with a childrens sand pit, ask for some of that and wash it thoroughly.

Eremurus/Foxtail lily

Together with lots of bulbs I ordered recently, I also received two Eremurus, an orange and a yellow one. I am wondering if I will have more success of them surviving if I plant them in pots now and keep them in the front porch (where I overwinter all my halfhardy plants, kept at 10°C) until Spring and plant them out then? Would be grateful for any advice/experience (Verdun perhaps?).

Lovely garden Diddy, but boy am I glad it's you that has to water all those pots and not me!

Harvest Mites - nasty little critters

Posted: 15/09/2013 at 18:08

Maybe if you could cut the weeds down, harvest mites like long grass and weeds. They are less likely to be in the shrubs or trees. My OH gets eaten alive by the little b****rs if he walks in long grass in late summer! They don't seem to like me though!

Might be camomile.

Cotoneaster causing concern!

If it is fireblight and there are any pear trees in your garden or in the vicinity, get rid of the whole plant fast, as it will spread to them!
