Osteospermum

Posted: 08/08/2012 at 13:16

Hi John, I also have this problem with one of my Osteospermums. I'm in the central belt of Scotland with the exact same symptom you describe. 

They were performing brilliantly too in early spring (May) and looked really healthy. I think with all this rain and poor summer in general.

Now they look rather brown and desheveled and not sure what to do either, my other osteospermum is fine but in another part of the border. I may try lifting it to see if its the wet or if anthing is feeding on the roots.

Re-felting a shed

Depending on the size of your shed roof you may have to use 2 or more lengths of felt to complete the job. My tip here is to make sure you layer or step the felt out from the apex or highest point of the roof to the edge ensuring the rain runs clean off.

I also would use a tar adhesive to bond the felt to the roof, this in combination with the tacks should stop the wind from getting under the felt in the winter and undoing your good work.

Hope this helps.
