Re: Rust on Leeks

I always seem to get rust on my leeks as well.

I've always just left them alone. It doesn't seem to stop them growing, just makes them look unsightly :)

I went for a walk along the wild bit alongside the beach yesterday, and said, oh look a ladybird!

Can't remember the last time I saw one :(

It's all very worrying isn't it.

Not many butterflies this year.

I've got 2 large buddleia's in the garden, both flowering profusely in the sunshine. Over the last couple of days, I've seen 1 Peacock, 2 Red Admirals, 1 Small Tortoiseshell, and 1 Painted Lady. Very sad state of affairs isn't it :( Saw a few Painted Lady's over the beach on Monday, but not much els...

I have 2 cloves just sprouting, so i'm thinking of growing one on each :) Hi Dan, When I had the allotment, I grew garlic in the polytunnel. Now that I am gardening at home, I planted the cloves in the unheated gree...

Re: Early Summer Bits and Bobs.

Not much rain at all this weekend for a change :) Managed to get the grass cut and edged. Looks quite respectable again for 5 minutes :lol: The strawberries are almost over, but loads of flowers on the raspberries. New Polka plants this year and looking good so far. Peppers are looking good in the g...

Re: Absent Gooseberry Sawfly

Evening OH,
