Ants in the Argyranthemums

Posted: 25/07/2015 at 19:15
Amts can do more damage than supposed. They create loose pockets around the roots of plants so,worth comtrolling.
Water spray helps but ant killer spray on the soil around the plants is effective. I had a similar issue in a dry part of my garden wall. If untreated plants can die.
Mind you,,it's better than ants in your pants!

Tomatoes

Yes, I do. But take lower leaves esp below flower trusses

It was almost a perfect garden

That's heartbreaking Rinus.
In contrast here all is fine. No damage. Simply refreshed the garden.
Wasnt much of a storm here either.....prolonged rain....heavy for many hours.
Hopefully when you do decide to clean it up it won't be as bad as you think now.

Is this tomato blight?

salvia hot lips,

All the microphylla type salvias are pretty indestructible until it is your last and most treasured one so be sensible and take every precaution to keep it Caroline.

What's the star in your garden right now

White Dianthus "Memories"

Posted: 25/07/2015 at 17:22
Grow it too. Think it was a new plant 3 or 4 years ago. Wonderful scent.
I try to regularly deadhead but it flowers so profusely...as most dianthus do.....so I often hack all,the stems back.
I think it is important to have a good healthy air flow around the plant so removing stems to the base is important.
That,"whitish brown" happycottontail , is mildew I think caused by your plant getting too dry so a good watering now and then should help. Cut off all affected parts to leave nice clean foliage
