Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 05/09/2013 at 22:18 understand.  It's not my greed.  It's  all about vitamins n minerals   And fidget's banana, sweet wine and syrup ....."attracting moths". ,  a likely story.  But I do drink lager to deter wood lice.

Mrs Garden, 

I am but a simple fellow so I am confused. 

Incidentally your lobelias and the miscanthus like same moist comditions as well as associating (contrasting) well together

Fidget, cream, meringue and raspberries.  Unfortunately, one portion was not required so I,had to eat second helping.  I managed it though.

Bought another wild swan today.  Looks good.  You may be right about the over watering, ESP re the plugs.  

MrsGarden, miscamthus variegatus is the most eye catching foliage wise.......lovely white effect so let nobody palm you off

Beautiful day until it rained later this afternoon.   So disappointed about the rain I,had to eat a raspberry pavlova

Which is which please

Pyracantha problems

Posted: 04/09/2013 at 19:21

Yes there is a fungicide for,pyracantha scab. You seem to,have done all the right things.

Amy pears nearby?  Pears and pyracantha suffer the same scab so need to be kept well apart.

Jusf checked out that fmgicide....the chemical ingredient is myclobutanil and apparently there are a number of sprays on the market

Agree donutsmrs

I don't have my own collection but have a few.......they are complementing my grasses and other perennials perfectly. Twynings  After Eight is fabulous dahlia......near black foliage and simple white flowers.
