Hydrangea colour

Posted: 22/07/2013 at 09:13

It is alkaline soil, but I wondered whether adding ericaceous compost to the soil would help. What do you think?

I imagined that the colourant would maintain/reverert back to the original colour ie blue.  Any thoughts?

I wanted to keep some hydrangeas blue, but they revert to pink.  I have clay soil and have been using colourant on them but so far it does not seem to make a difference.

Any suggestions, please.

Problem solved!

It has rained a lot today and the flower head has appeared. It appears to be some type of distorted evening primrose...Perhaps all of the plants I removed and thought were weeds were in fact attacked by the aphids some of the more eagle eyed amongst you suggested. 

Thanks for the help.

The plant self seeded.  Any compost (Homebase) was used around other plants without any ill  effect and it is certainly not weedkiller.

I have not heard of fasciation, it may be affected by this, but I still do not know what the plant may be...Any more ideas?

If so Dove, why has it not affected other plants?

No weedkillers, nutcutlett.

All 5  plants looked like this. They are growing in with my hydrangeas and so far nothing else has been affected.

I don't think so, Dove. The leaves appear to have grown like this on the other plants too. I have just noticed the insect, however I am more interested in what the plant/weed may be.

I have had several and left this one to see what it becomes but it does not look like it will flower.  The leaves are spindly but towards the base are like an evening primrose.

Triffid be damned!

At first I thought this was Evening Primrose but it is not. Does anyone recognise what it may be?

Honey Fungus: What To Grow?

Posted: 12/04/2013 at 15:55

I'll try anything to save my plants and so, although I've read that it may not work, I am going to use the Armillotox. The website suggests that the only reason it is no longer sanctioned is because of the EU, not because it does not work.
