Leaf curl

Posted: 30/03/2015 at 19:46

A batten attached to the bottom of the polythene.....much like a roller blind.....and then pegged or weighted down

Not done this but a couple of heavy duty hooks on the wall and a rolled up on a pole sheet of polythene could be added or removed at will.  

For me, peach leaf curl is not a problem in early summer ...I,think the leaves are tougher a cover is not necessary.

Have an idea someone once asked you this but how many hostas do you have Hostafan?  

Speaking with grower this morning I am keen to get more hostas.  Trouble is, I think, if too many of one type of plant is grown the more likely it is to have disease and pest problems.  As in all things, moderation is the key.

fruit trees

I think fruit trees grown on anything other than dwarfIng rootstocks will simply grow leggy.  Altogether a fruitless idea I think.  Sorry Ann

We're all smitten by hostas right now it seems

hostas will grow very well in the sun.  As long as soil is damp.  Sun can bring out the best colours I understand 

primrose cottage, fire and ice is the "white one".   Green and white leaves but mainly white.

a batten fastened on the wall above your peach tree and a sheet of polythene attached to it is effective.  It can be rolled up or draped when wet.
