Peach leaf Curl

Posted: 13/05/2014 at 20:35

Well, its the rain that creates the comditions for peach leaf curl.  They need to be covered when new leaves unfurl in spring. ,

Domt spray.....you want to eat those peaches and sprays domt really do much. Keep picking off the puckering leaves and ensure the plant is fed and watered well (not from,overhead) 

If you,allowed peach leaf curl to go umchecked your plant will die.  It needs those leaves to live.  

I have 2 peaches in pots. They got a touch of peach leaf curl ....I was fogetful and left them uncovered.  They are fine now.....I picked off the affected leaves and have a small amount of fruit on each plant.  I also spray with Epsom salts and later with seaweed spray,,both as tonics.  I

Hiya jatnikapyar ......I like your style  Well said 

Is it ok to move an azalea now ?

Posted: 13/05/2014 at 20:25

I would move now.  They are small plants.  Only if they have finished flowering though or you will lose the flowers,this year.  Your plants won't even know they have been moved.    Azaleas,have such a small rootball they will,be easy.

Tomsk, sounds like over watering plants that have not got enough roots.  2 months ago you planted them!  Outside? Nights are still cool in some area....dahlias don't like that.   And are they in large pots?  They need to be in small pots and potted on as they grow. 

Repairing a hose

Just bought a new hose.  30 year warranty.  No kink. My old hose drove me to despair.....kinking everywhere. ,

I agree with Bust Bee. ,I would get a new hose Mark.    They aren't expensive .

Well, busy, busy day in the garden. Finished, more or less, planting the front garden.  Weeds.....so many......cleared, stocks and wallflowers out and summer,flowerers and grasses in.looks promising.  (forgive the swearing folks, but a grass I  Iike and recommend is Arrhenatherum Bulbosum.  Almost white in appearance, contrasting well with purple shrubs like berberis atro nana, and about 60 cm tall.  I divide mine every year or two to quickly make more plants.  Put one behind spirea with orange foliage......forget its name for mo.  

Hot day.  Luverly 

phytophthora root rot

Posted: 13/05/2014 at 16:25

Yes, and your photinia might be its next victim.  Lost mine because of phytophthora ......on a nearby juniper.....that spread to it.

I replanted the area with herbaceous perennials......dahlias,,heleniums, etc.

Hmmmmm!  Yes, they might make it awkward on a tight reel. however, it's the only way to repair hoses satisfactorily.

Hiya jatnikapyar, 

I too feel there is a language issue here rather than him being rude.

Its funny, isnt it, how we can read things differently?

Let us know if he sends you replacement seeds.  I think we will.  If not I will agree with you about this supplier.

Best wishes jatnikapyar.
