When we always say...(when someone's looking at the garden)..."you should have seen it last week"
Nice thread KEF
My runner bean construction is based on 3 x 8' galvanised poles, supports and struts 3 wires and a bean net. The wires pass through holes in the poles and through a bean net. It is immensely strong and needs to be. I grow huge crops of beans. Beans are grown on both sides of the support. Over the years I have found this to be by far the best way to grow runner beans
Same to you Artjak......
Artjak, I will take pic when the fuschia in it is in full flower. I can charge you more then for it.............lol
Keep us posted. Like to know what you find. I'm always curious as to the cause of poorly plants
I suspected vine weevil damage in a similar case recently....as goldilocks suggested I checked it's roots...but it was unaffected. Not sure you can get Provado vine weevil killer now in the GC etc.....it's now banned.....but you still might get it online. If not use nematodes....if you see those grubs.
Hiya Richard. I have a feeling your juniper is dying.
Junipers tolerate dry comditions so I think watering it like that would not have been good.
Keep an eye on it but, usually, when they,start browning they deteriorate.
No not too late. You can cut it right back or to any point you like. I think fuschias look much better cut hard back and they flower better. You will delay floweriing ....prob won't get any til late summer
Cuf cleanly.....sharp secateurs...and no jagged or damaged cuts. And then give it a feed of any balanced fertiliser.
It will soon leaf up and look good albeit with very late flowers
Virago, before the leaves dropped did they look like rolled up cigars? Rolled up tight and then rapid leaf drop? Are the dead leaves in a tightly rolled-up state?
If so this is likely to be phytophthora and overwatering is a contributory factor. It's been cold, we've had a winter and early spring of heavy rain and the roots can't cope esp if plant is in shade. Sequestrene won't make a difference to this.
Try some roses chicky. ( envious, can't grow roses here)
Regale lilies for their scent. Runner beans.
Over watering is fatal to canariensis. They grow widely outside down here but mine were in too much damp shade.
