SOURCE: I have planted some sage

Cut them with the stem.Do not cut ALL of it.Leave some to grow.When you get it cut place it all in a brown paper bag.Close the bag.Everyday open the bag and shake it.This will dry it so you can keep it for a long time.When it is dry,I use a tobacco grinder and grind stems and all.I then store it in a plastic freezer bag and freeze it.Just in case you need something sage is good on.Sword fish,or any fish with the same texture.Marinate the fish in olive oil,with 3 fresh lemons,cut and squeeze them into the oil,then add plenty of the sage.Wait for 24 hours or more,then grill.

My Scarlet pimpernel Dipladenia sanderil some of the leaves have big brown stains in the middle of the leaves why is that


hi Yvonneduchen.
Blooming mandevillas need moist soil that drains well enough to prevent standing water. Too much water can choke the roots so they don't feed the plant adequately. This can cause the leaves to turn yellow. Conversely, too little water can be deadly, starting with yellow leaves that turn brown and drop off the plant.

How do I recognise tomato blight ?? do the leaves go brown and how can I treat it


prevention is better than cure. It is a fungal attack. Pictures and info in the link.

How do you prevent early blight?
  • Rotate crops. Early blight remains active for a year. Spores can be dormant in the soil for several years.
  • Plant disease-resistant hybrids to strengthen your plant's chances of being blight-free.
  • Plant tomatoes in a raised bed to improve drainage and prevent diseases from spreading.
  • Give tomato plants extra space (more than 24 inches) to let air to move among leaves and keep them dry.
  • Water the soil - not the plants - to prevent splashing. Avoid overhead watering.
  • Mulch with black plastic or landscape fabric to prevent fungus from spreading up onto leaves.
  • Stake tomato plants for better circulation.
  • Remove and destroy affected plants at the end of the season.

How to care for ho useplant begonia rex?


Growing Requirements for Rex Begonia Plants Rex Begonias grow best in bright, indirect sunlight coming from an east or west window.
Fluorescent grow lights are also an excellent alternative to natural light for these plants,
and in many cases will intensify the foliage colors.
When potting, set the plant with the crown slightly above the soil line.
They should be planted in a porous, slightly acidic planting mix that contains some peat moss
and leaf mold. African Violet potting mixes work well for Rex Begonias.

Allow the top 1inch of soil to dry before watering, then water thoroughly.
Over watering can lead to root or crown rot! Wet foliage can cause problems with mildew.
Always use room temperature water when watering house plants.
House plants should never be allowed to stand in water for more than a few hours.
Painted-Leaf Begonia plants thrive with daytime temperatures of 70-75
and 60-65 at night. NEVER lower than 60!
They require a humidity level of at least 50 percent and appreciate periodic, light misting.
Provide additional humidity by setting the plants on shallow trays filled with moistened pebbles,
or a humidifier, especially during the winter months.

Feed actively growing plants in early spring and again in early summer with a slow-release plant food,
or every 2 weeks using a quarter strength dilution of a soluble, complete fertilizer (23-19-14).
Decrease feeding in early fall and stop altogether in the winter. Do not over-fertilize!

Your Begonia Rex may go dormant in the winter and possibly drop its leaves.
If this happens, continue to water sparingly until spring when new leaves will re-appear.
If your Rex is growing where it only gets light from one side ( a window sill),
turn the pot a quarter turn each week to maintain even growth.
Foliage color may fade under low light conditions. Consider using a grow light.

Remove any dead leaves and other debris around plant regularly.
Rex Begonias enjoy spending the summer in a shaded part of the garden.
Always be sure to check for insects and pests before bringing your plants back indoors!
Rex Begonias are susceptible to attacks from mealy bugs.

How to get rid of mealybugs in plants, soil and pots?


Get a couple of ladybugs in, as they eat mealy bugs. and are good natural pest control.

If you've a pretty bad infestation, then get an insecticide containing "thiacloprid". But only use this on non-edible plants.

Bought 2 new gardenia in 9cm pots, have re-potted into large container, they have had feed and water, yet they seem to be dying off


It could be that the container they are in is too big. The top layers of soil are the first to dry up so if a container is too large for the plants, the nutrients and water could be washed down beyond the smaller plants reach. I would start by having the soil tested at a local plant and tree nursery. Over time minerals and salts can build up in soil to levels that may be tolerable for a larger plant that has grown in that soil it\'s entire life, but will mean doom and death to smaller plants or different types of plants. If the soil tests ok,. then I\'d try a smaller container. I\'m no expert, this is just from my own experience. Hope it helps.

Ficus trees loosing leaves turnig yellow and falling off


How long have you had the tree?
Indoors or out?
If indoors, do you have any new plants in the house?
Have you moved the plant recently?

Your problem could be any one of:
  1. An infestation of tiny insects. Spray a solution of soap and water all over the plant, top and underside of leaves, until it is dripping. This will kill the insects.
  2. Overwatering. Hard to fix. Try transferring to a bigger pot and mixing in new dry soil. Or poke holes in the soil around the roots with the handle of a wooden spoon to let the air in.
  3. Underwatering. Put the plant in the bath, turn on the shower, set to tepid (i.e. not freezing cold and definitely not hot) and give it a good soaking. But take the pot out of the tray or dish and let it drain. It should not be in standing water. Don't water "little and often" - this is bad... give it a good soaking and then let it dry out.
  4. Chemical build up from tap water. If you see a salty-looking depsoit aorund the pot, or brown depsoits. do the same procedure as above.
Hope this helps.
