What's happening in my garden!

Yes plants are in process of dying back, etc.  I would soon gather up fallen leaves, etc. and generally go on a hygiene spree.  Won't affect next year's plants.  Your honeysuckle is prob suffering from mildew.....dryness is a cause.  So good mulch should help with that one.  ( homeysuckles have suffered widely this year in the got dry weather)

I have a feeling Brumbull may return soon.  Shall we leave the two FORKERS (always feel I'm swearing when I use that word) for just a while longer.  The g'day FORKERS seems appropriate replacement though.  If Brumbull sees we have replaced his threads he may beat me up

Lawn Grubs

Think dove may be right cos I can't think of any black slug like pests.  The explanation that the flooding has brought them to the surface also makes sense to me.
