Yeeeeeeeees Philippa 

Chlorotic skimmia and peris

Posted: 06/09/2014 at 19:29

Flora rosa,,is,the skimmia in the open?  In the  sun?  Skimmia needs some shade  but it won't like watering every day either.  Not a great plant for a pot. ,I also,find skimmias  need a season or two to settle down

The pieris will prob benefit from sequestereme but as a cheaper alternative spray with Epsom salts ASAP.  Spray  again in a week.  pieris needs some moisture. Needs acid soil.  Is ground a little dry?  Is your soil acid or alkaline?  Have you tested?

Dove, what gaillardias are ??ou growing ?  I think I,will divide any I have ....already have one.......and plant out in groups next year.  Should then look like a perennial (!)

Excellent Dove.  It's growing on me.   Next year I will plant elsewhere though.  (I have anemone wild swan flowering just a metre away from star child ....verbena rigida should in theory have provided a sufficiently efficient "demarcation" zone but it's not worked out that way )   Might plant it amongst a group of echinacea  salsa red ...yep!   That's what I will do 

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Good point KEF.  Excellent...and prob much needed ......thread  but we cannot be naive about "friends" online.  Need to be absolutely sure about personal  info, ID's and  wary about making contact.  An email address, for example, and a clue about where you live can locate you.   No need to be alarmed ...just sensible
