Fred's First has Violet and Carmine flowers!

Comment from Kathryn Williams

In forum: Fuchsia 'Fred's First'

Note that the plant with reddish pink flowers is not Fred's First. The description on American Fuchsia Society data base is violet and Carmine. Registered in 1978. I am aware of this as Fred was my father!

Would this climbing rose be happy in a large pot? The spot I have earmarked is a paved area so I am hoping it will survive in a pot and give some colour to the area.

What's eating my pinks?

Question from sulagna

In forum: Pests, diseases and weeds

I recently planted Pinks plugs into pots. I left them in my allotment polytunnel. This morning I noticed some of the leaf tips have been eaten off (or so it looks). I have not noticed any slug trails, no slugs/snails visible on the plot yet. What could have happened?

Patches on eggplant leaves

Question from sulagna

In forum: Edible gardening

Hi.
I started my eggplants indoors and now have 4-5 leaves on them. This morning I noticed these shiny silvery patches on some of the leaves. Can anyone tell me what they are? The plants are indoors under grow lights.
Thanks.

Hens and chicks?

Question from Kitti R Storey

In forum: Identify a plant

I found these when I cleaned out my garden a few days ago. There are about 4 or 5 of them in there. They are about 1 inch tall and spread out in a small circle cluster of about 20 of each of the little buds. A couple of people have said they look like hens and chicks (not sure of the real name), they are similar, but definitely not what is growing in my garden. Any ideas would be wonderful :)

Garden Groups of Plants

Question from Pete Lock

In forum: Suggestion box

It would be very useful to be able to jump straight to a garden group that has been set up. Otherwise one has to scroll through all of them to get to the plant you want. Could we please have a "My Group List" as well as a "My Plant List"?
