GREEN APHIDS KILLING SPRUCE

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 20:10

Could be mites.  Over the recent hot weather they decimate spruces.  A thorough wetting with the hose.....get the hose inside and around the bush.  It does work.......worked well for me anyway.

Talkback: Rhododendron leaf spot

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 19:17

But fragmented this thread.  

Patsey, what sort of leaf spot do you have?  Are leaves shrivelling and curling like cigars and dropping?  

are your plants in pots?  Is compost very wet? 

Bear in mind right now many plants have leaf spots and markings.  Chilly nights, hot sun all sorts of physiological reasons that often resolve themselves as season progresses 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Winter, you are a busy bee.  

I revamped part of a very dry part of garden this afternoon.  Ironically a hosta, camelia and half standard jap willow grow well there.  I think I'm pleased with the results.  I spend a lot of time working out exact plantIngs sometimes cos I wanted it just right.  Other times I get it "right" (?) very quickly

I ran out of quality compost for my runner beans so I used my bothersome visitor instead.  Had to dig quite deep but it should be great for next few years there.  Does anyone know?  Is silver jewellery safe in veg garden?

Non-flowering daffodils

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 18:50

And bulbs need to be planted quite deep

often daffodils can take a year off from flowering......dont know why but I experience that here sometimes.  The bulbs flower well the following year.

Perovskia 'Blue spire'

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 18:40

Once you have perovskia you can pull it apart and plant each piece.  Or you can layer it. 

There' s a compact version of it called Little Blue Spire.
