What has eaten my netted gooseberries?

Blackbirds I suspect Suewoo.....if there is any gap at all at soil level they will get in there.     


I was a little lax last year netting my blueberries leaving an opening for a blackbird.  I think....think....I have covered all this time.

Fixing browk plants with selotape

Unlikely to work but a tall support cane in addition to the tape may help.


however, wakeshine, I would cut off the broken stem and hopefully encourage further growth from intact stems.  Apply a balanced fertiliser too if you do this.  .....oh!  And stake the remaining stems now with soft twine and do so in several places.  I grow pretty tall delphiniums that cope well with winds .....they are supported throughout the stems.

Your "mum/mom" plant...chrysanthemum...will not flower for a few weeks yet marsh31.  it is doing exactly what it is supppsed to do, viz., send up lots of foliage and then flower in late summer.

Garden Rescue - TV Programme

Come on Folks.  Another garden prog....surely it's good isn't it?  


I record Garden Rescue and although there are some "flaws" I enjoy the prog.


charlie being overweight?  Who cares?  She is pleasant, kept me tuned in to Ground Force years ago and forms a nice team with the brothers.  Fun and easy viewing.  

Agastache Blue Boa

Hiya Peanuts


you should be able to dig blue boa up and repot.  by the time autumn comes they will be bigger but not sufficiently so to survive a cold winter.  I would pot them up and in a month or so take a couple of cuttings.  You will then have a group to plant out in mid spring.  Sun, sun and sun for agastaches but they will not like drying out too much until established or being crowded by other plants.


be careful though...agastaches can be addictive !
