Rose question

Hi all, I have a Paul Scarlet climbing rose growing in my garden, aprox 3-4 years old.  It flowers every year with red roses.  However, this year it has produced the red roses but has now also additional stems growing (with 7 leaves as opposed to the original 5 on rest of plant), and the roses are pale pink.  Can anyone advise what is happening - is it reverting back to root stock?  Many thanks for your help.  Kind regards Tony

Worm thing on Chrysanthemum

What is this worm like thing that was on on my chrysanthemum?  I took it off and put it in a dry dish and it didn't move, so I added water and it immediately started to move about.. did I drown it?   Never seen this before, has anyone any idea what it is please?   Kind regards Tony.

Orchid question

See photo, this Phalaenopsis orchid is growing what I believe are plantlets, I am not sure what to do with these.  Do I remove and pot-on (if so what is best way to do this please), or leave on the main plant.  Appreciate any guidance.  Kind regards Tony

Plum problems

Posted: 21/05/2016 at 17:55

I have a Victoria Plum tree on the patio, I have had this for 3 years.  I get the same problem every year, I have enquired before (thankyou for those that previously replied), I have been feeding and watering it well and it is showing first fruit for the year but then these do not mature to plums.  They are deformed and never fill out and then eventually fall off.  This year I have more plums than ever but still the same problem.  Not sure whether to remove some of the fruit... any suggestions appreciated.  Kind regards Tony

Hi fidgetbones,i dont think it is a flowering stem as i have seen them before and there are more coming on the plant now,i think they might be new plantlets but i don't know what to do with them i'll send some pics so you can see. Thanks for all your responses Tony
