However, that changed, and suddenly it was taking over a huge section of our garden fence. For a few weeks, things were great, more and more blooms, more and more climbing. Then, suddenly, leaves started turning yellow, then brown. It all seemed to radiate from the base of the plant. After posting pictures of the problem on our Facebook page, the best advise was that a vine borer had got into it and to take it out before it hatched its eggs. So that is what I did. I tore it down, pulled it up, and split it open. You know what I found? The inside of a cucumber vine. That’s it. No bugs, no holes. If a rockless incline is your problem area, consider the possibility of importing rock to build a rock garden (see above) from scratch — it will help hold back the soil and cut down on erosion. If you don’t care for rocks gardens, specifically, you may be more interested simply in growing a ground cover to stop erosion. But a more popular erosion-busting option is to build retaining walls. 400px wide I am turning 70 in a few months and Hubs is 74. So it may be that we are more susceptible than you younger gardeners. But it turns out oak leaves harbor mites, and we have been bitten by them. I had a terrible time with what I thought was chiggers in the garden, worse than I could remember since we started gardening here in 2011. And now I have a rash on my leg I cannot get to go away. I’ve been researching and I think that one of two things have happened: 1) I am being bitten by oak mites and not chiggers, and they are triggering an allergy of some kind; and/or 2) I have gotten fungus on my hands from the wood chip pile, and then scratched my chigger (or mite, whichever) bites, thus allowing the fungus to get into my skin. Hubs has had a rash on one of his legs for about six months. We’ve shown our rashes to doctors and they say, “contact dermatitis”. Though the ointments they prescribe do not help. Hubs had an additional problem in that he was shoveling wood chips from the pile and got in a cloud of “dust” which must’ve been fungal in nature. All night that night, he hacked and coughed. Fortunately, those symptoms were gone by morning, and he has since had a chest xray as the normal part of a checkup and everything was ok. But it was kind of scary. We’ll be going back to the doctor and telling them what we think might be causing our rashes now, since doctors these days won’t waste their time doing any detective work and it’s just all too easy to lump every skin problem into “contact dermatitis” and send the patient away. The only problem is, we have to wait almost a month to get in to see the doctor. Sheesh. So much can happen in a month. So I’m trying to think about what I might try in the meantime. Maybe tea tree oil, neat? Thanks for posting this. I always feel like I am the only one who fails at gardening. Like you, I will try again! Unfortunately, a lot of people start to think about composting in the Spring. They’re anxious to get out in the garden, have heard—or know—that compost is a great natural fertilizer, soil amendment and disease preventer, and want to get a pile going. But nine times out of ten—maybe more like 9.9 times out of ten—they don’t have THE most important ingredient: Shredded fall leaves. My garden is full of old rubbish My garden is too small Want seclusion? Then this is the garden for you. All walls/fences have trellis panels fixed to their fronts and tops so that climbers can be trained up to hide the space from onlookers. The wide S-shaped path is cobbled for a relaxed feel, so make sure you choose a table and chairs with chunky legs to avoid wobble. Go for low-maintenance exotics, which provide year-round interest, and place large plants, such as tree ferns and a windmill palm, in the borders, so that the shed can’t be seen from indoors and the bench is hidden from neighbouring houses. Passionflowers grow quickly, but won’t damage fences or brickwork if given supports, such as a trellis, to cling to. My garden is windy Lettuce and hostas are popular food for slugs, which can nibble garden plants to pieces. Healthy growth is the mainstay of every garden. Why design something that looks great on the drawing board but fails to provide the right environment for plants to thrive? You end up wasting time, money, energy and possibly even harming your garden environment. Helping you find solutions to common insect pests, diseases and weeds in your garden. Mexican Feather Grass does lie down. If you don’t like this affect, you can give it a haircut with a few inches of the top to prevent flopping. It probably looks best if cut once or twice during the season. Also, be sure to pull out dead foliage new foliage emerges. However, if everything is pulling out easily, then the plant didn’t root well. Provide a well-drained soil (not too compact) and water regularly during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Reduce watering after establishment. In terms of the sage, we haven’t heard of mole problems. Moles tend to eat grubs in lawns. Voles, however, love spring perennials. If you are concerned, we’d suggest raised garden beds or dig a trench around the area that you want protected. With increasing amounts of mole hills on her lawn and moles now burrowing under her flowerbed, Tiffany Daneff looks at ways of controlling the moles in her garden. Garden Gift Hub is one of the most thoughtful and interesting places on the web to find original and useful gardening and nature inspired products. As much as it pains me to say this, I would NOT use any more hay on your garden until you can absolutely, 100% verify the hay or field it came from has not been sprayed with any sort of herbicide. Brazilian agronomist Aldemir Caligari is responsible for a revolutionary cover cropping finding with wonderful outcomes in agriculture. However, this super-productive strategy, called cocktail cover cropping, is equally valid for home gardeners seeking to fast-track improvements in soil structure and humus generation. New garden owners panic sometimes panic about things they’ve heard; received wisdom can be quite detrimental. Wisteria, for instance, has a reputation for being difficult. A brief explanation that I received while training at Cottesbrooke Hall has always stuck; in its logic, it is not difficult at all. The same goes for roses, which I also talk about. More is to be gained from doing, than reading, and the friendly tone of my book will hopefully get people to open the back door, secateurs in hand. On top of all that, we have loads of ready made designs for you to download that will help you transform your garden into something really beautiful. There were gardeners in the Bulkley Valley/Skeena Valley (BC, Canada) that used hay and straw/manure contaminated with Grazon (picloram) – widely used to combat broadleaf weeds. I was aware of that so could take precautions and did some testing with my straw for mulching and that I also use for my chickens. Everyone can do it at home to make sure it is not contaminated. Grazon has a long half life therefore gardeners in our area had to dig soil about 3 feet deep and exchange with not contaminated topsoil/compost mix and start new. Big job and sometimes quite expensive. Before adding compost/hay/straw/manure do the simple test and be sure your herbicide free Here is the link to an article explaining the bioassay method to test for herbicides http://northword.ca/features/environment/mean-manure-killer-compost-grazon-after-effects-in-the-bulkley-valley/ Hope this is of help!
