Morning Glory leaves are shriveling up

Posted: 10/05/2013 at 11:40

Could be cold.  They doNt like cool comditions.  Don't grow them now but when I did I made sure temperatures were high.ish before planting them out.

Those that are dying, are they next to the window glass?

My evening last night - if I didn't laugh I'd have cried!

Morning everydoby

Wet  here, no wind and warmish.  Chauffeur today but hope to pot oN lettuce and do some pruning.  Impatient to get my tender stuff the daffodils die down the available spaces are seen.

Enjoy your days folks

I don't like them in or around the home but in the compost bin I think perhaps they do harm.  I certainly wouldn't use any insecticide there.

Leave them alone.  I do

Blistered leaves.

Hiya Julian.

Yes just as Anne has said.

Best you can do is remove those blistered leaves and feed to encourage new shoots.

I have 2 small peaches in biggish pots.  I always bring them into the greenhouse in spring when growth starts but I forgot.  So I got Peach leaf curl.  I picked off the affected leaves and put Imto greenhouse.  I think Im ok.  New unaffected leaves have grown now.  

Its the new tender growth that needs to be protected from rain. Later in the late spring the leaves are unaffected so I put the bushes outside then.  A seaweed spray is good too....mid spring amd after fruiting

New Lawn has dead patches

If its square it's unlikely to be an animal I think.

Are you sure you didnt leave something on your lawn recently?  I once laid a small cloche on the lawn during a hot summers afternoon....prob only for couple of hours...and it killed the grass.

Welcome Rosie to the forum.

If you have freesat you can watch or record Beachgrove on radio Scotland

Oh...good evening FORKERS.  Wet this afternoon and windy...not too cold.

Had to take my dog regardless of the weather!

Planted agastache black adder, Bowles golden grass, split and planted pulmonaria, and planted couple of dahlias, as well as couple of Voltage Yellow osteospermums.  Getting there!

Hiya tina

The weathers deteriorated...was good now windy n wet.  Simpy not the best right now...!!!

Thats right Fairygirl I'm in the country of Cornwall.  You english tried to hang Trelawney and we have not forgotten that

Arrjak, now that's dedication.  Mind you I'm a bit like that too. Have no patience and if I decide to do something in the garden no rain, cold or wind will stop me.

Disappointed cos I wanted to put up my runner bean supports.
