Morning everyone.

Warm, quiet but cloudy here.

Butter good for you KEF?  Always thought butter is better than marg.  I drink loads of milk...gold top....butter and cheese.  Last time I had a cholesterol test is was 3.1.  That was prob 10 years ago ....maybe it's higher now?  

Plants expected last week due this week, tomorrow I think.  And an order to Allwoods but communication with this firm is not easy (not sure if T & M have bought them out.  If so I won't buy from them again)

Allium

Cover for peach leaf curl.....rain drops allow spores of the fungus to develop amd cause those debilitating red blisters on the leaves.  It's the new young and emerging leaves that are most vulnerable.  I have 2 young trees in pots and I imtemd to cover with a parasol at this time.

If fan trained on a wall.....this is best.....you can drape a polythene sheet fastened to the wall over the tree

I always cut my jasmine back very hard.  Last week I did mine.  Looks dead, no leaves left but it will be just fine and flower late summer.  A hard cut back promotes a bushy plant 

amazing are plants

Anthony,

When you plant out your fire and ice make sure it's out of the sun, ESP during the summer.  Those leaves will simply curl up and suffer. Fire and Ice simply cannot tolerate direct sun.  

I have Fire Island shooting now...new plant....and the leaves are an amazing yellow 

Help identify this plant with red buds

Welcome to the forum Danae.  A picture will solve the mystery of your plant.  Could be so many things ?...possibly even a hellebore so it's all guesswork for now
