Grow Your Own / Re: What I did on the plot today 2017
« Last post by chillimummy on Yesterday at 23:32 »
Managed an hour between showers. ;)
Planted my burgess buttercup, butternut squash, pumpkins and the one courgette that germinated  ;)
Also planted some sprouts and covered with debris netting.
Bought some celeriac today as had no seeds and planted them out. Should have been eight plants but most cells had  two in so happy with that  :)
Even with a day of rain, the soil was dry underneath top layer but few more peas peeping out of the soil  :)

General Gardening / Re: SBK weedkiller on ivy, strange recommendation
« Last post by wighty on Yesterday at 22:35 »
I've just double checked with Paul as he sells it in the shop and I had remembered right, you can mix SBK with paraffin to use on tree stumps, ivy and other 'thick skinned' weeds.

Grow Your Own / Re: Say it isn't so...

I would nip off offending leaves and give a good feed.

It's showing on 90-95% of the leaves on all but 1 plant, it appeared and spread very quickly. I don't think defoliating would help. If it is Septoria Leaf Spot it looks pretty much terminal, although all the info I can find is from the states, if it was an issue here I'd have expected lots of uk based hits.  :wacko:

It's not as if the environmental conditions have been right for it and having replaced most of the glass this year the greenhouse was spotless and the compost was new.

The plants are well fed with comfrey and had a epsom salts last week as there was a little mg deficiency in the older leaves. The tomatoes in the top gh appear to be fine - so far.   :unsure:

Grow Your Own / did my cherry tree get canker?
« Last post by honeymelon on Yesterday at 21:32 »
I thought my cherry tree I palnted 2 years ago got canker, it is on the main chunk. the chunk was cut in by the metal support which I didn't notice until last winter as it was bleeding. the photos were from last year and it was sapping again since last month.
 
Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks

Grow Your Own / Re: Rhubarb leaved not developing
« Last post by snow white on Yesterday at 21:25 »
The rhubarb I planted this spring has not done well.  It has been too dry even with my copious watering.  It has picked up now, but it was touch and go for a bit.  I imagine in a raised bed it would need lots of watering.  They are thirsty plants.
