Topiary

Posted: 06/08/2016 at 07:42

i bought one of these wire box shapers for the first time yesterday. 


Can someone help me ?   Does one fix this cage onto the topiary ball merely to cut around the shape, then remove the cage?  Or is the cage mean to remain on so the box remains in shape?    My daughter says the box looks like it's being asfixiated, & wants me to remove the wire cage? ๐Ÿ˜›   I've said it's an experiment with the first of our 4 box plants.  But am leaving for France on holiday today - & my daughter wants me to remove the wire cage?


advice please ?  thankyou๐Ÿ˜ƒ  Tads 

Jasminoides

can you help?


red marks, sort of "rosetted" in shape (see attached photo) have appeared on our 8 year old fabulous jasminoides in a pot in our garden in Guildford.  I am concerned.  I have removed every one of them & destroyed them just this afternoon.


but, I am worried this may be related to the "red spots" which appeared in my rhodendron (see previous post 10 minutes ago).  I am asking for help with the rhododendron problem too, as I am frightened that may be ""phytothera" (spelling) which is a bad disease I believe. I removed the offending leaves from the rhodie Tow weeks ago & am watching it carefully.


but can anyone help me with the jasminoides red marks?


do you think this is related to the rhodie problem.  


Both plants are in the back garden in close proximity.


i am hoping I can treat them, and save them?


what do you think & suggest ?  Thankyou 

Rhododendron

see attached photograph of my 7 month old rhododendron in a pot, with red spots which appeared on 8 of its leaves two weeks ago.  I am frightened it might be "phytothera" - I have removed the leaves & destroyed them.  All this happened two weeks ago.   I dont want to lose this otherwise healthy plant, it gave us a wonderful floral display for a month, Is budding up well for next season, & looks otherwise very healthy, lovely dark green leaves.


i need advice please on what I can do to save it ?  I am watching it carefully.  Can anyone help ? 


thankyou. ๐Ÿ˜ข Tads
