  • This tree, about 6-8 metres tall, has a profusion of white blossom on it right now with a fantastically sweet fragrance.It reminds me of hawthorn but it is a single stem and there are no thorns so I assume it’s a tree…. Can anyone identify this based on the blossom..? (picture shows the trunk in the background) Can send more pics on request!
    Thank you!

  • Thanks for the tips! I have just done a blitz of squashing, dodging and weaving the ants! I will try the soapy water trick too… No sign of any predators yet so I’ll also try the soapy water trick as I couldn’t get all the blackflies (especially those teeny tiny ones) and maybe will get some predators along the way which would be good.

  • hi there
    I have away for a week or so and have returned to find blackfly and farmer ants on my dahlias. Has anyone had a good experience with an organic remedy for this? I tried manually taking the blackfly off, but had to dodge the ants, so if anyone’s had a similar experience and can offer some advice I’d be very grateful!
    Thanks a mill :bye:

  • Lovely! Thanks all. I dunno what I’d do without you, you are so knowledgeable!

  • Hi, I saw this lovely plant growing in someone’s garden and would like help identifying it. If anyone knows I’d be chuffed. Thanks so much :-)

  • Thank you Walt and Dandlyon, that’s really helpful. I’ll give it a try. :bye:

  • It would certainly makes sense given it’s been so windy. Thanks Walt.

  • Hi VegVamp
    They’re a combination of Cobra, Runner and Bauhilde. I planted them out last week so I think it would tally that perhaps it was on the tad early side….
    Weather was around the mid teens, soil about 8degrees but the weather has been fluctuating alot and taken a few dips to around to 5 degrees at night time…I’ve read you can remove…[Read more]

  • Hi!
    I planted these climbing beans out but they look knackered. Leaves a bit shredded in places and they’re mottled. The site they’re in is exposed and it can get windy but there were some signs beforehand after the hardening off period. I hardened them off over a three week period, gradually getting them accustomed with the outdoors. It’s been a…[Read more]

  • Hi I can’t seem to find a definitive answer so I’m hoping someone here can help me!
    I have got some raised beds growing veg based on a legume-brassica-root rotation. I’ve got different areas for carrots and chard. However, I’d like to include some beetroot in there somewhere but not sure whether to intersperse it (alternate planting/rows) within…[Read more]
