Inside and outside conservatory thousands and thousands of flying ants. And venturing inside utility room. Luckily ant spray to hand so looks like I've got situation under comtrol. l Hope ant spray wont be banned too.....environment goodie goodies will say it should be, no doubt, so what then would we use? Ants are swarming....sprayed around places near the bungalow

Worst Gardening Tool

Posted: 19/07/2015 at 16:53
Two favourite tools...a cornish shovel. Technique to it but it can lift a lot. Makes short work of a trench
Second is my hand trowel ...tough and strong. An elderly neighbour made it for me years back and its mislaid somewhere in the garden. Heavy, long handled and unbreakable and for me,that's important. You name it and I'll break it. Tonka toys just fell apart ......bewildered smilie there!

In my garden today?

Planted out dwarf kniphofia, transplanted stipa tennuissima and guara white butterfly. Picked runner beans, carrots, beetroot,blackcurrants and a couple of peaches. Cut back lysimachia Bougelais to scores of buds lower down. Staked a couple of tall dahlias. Killed a bullock for tea......oh no! I got carried away.
Now to check on cricket score.....what's the betting England have already lost?

You may have seen parts of this before?

Lupin flower problem

I think we over feed our plants generally. A healthy soil will usually be enough for most things.
Veg and fruit do need extra though.

Hello forkers
Dont get too tired at the coal face Hosta
Forecast said rain overnight but its been dry and sun is emerging. Feeling very warm already
Impulsively I ripped out some argyranthemums early this morning to replace with agastache summer sunset I had in a pot. Bit "gappy" at moment but it will quickly make up the space but those pink argyranthemums constantly irritated.
Still on basic editor so cant post smilies, pics etc.

Is this tomato blight?
