Aw Chelle sorry I missed your birthday glad you had a lovely relaxing one Thumbs up

I'm having trouble with some of my rudbeckias and gailardias this year Grumbling One of my rudbeckias have weird flowers had to pull it! Then one of my Messa gailardias the bloom is weird too! My favorite hibiscus that is dk. pink with the dark eye has a double stem and the leaves are distorted Crying The one rudbeckia is in another bed but the other two are about five ft. from each other some of my other rudbeckias haven't begun to bloom yet but my other gailardias seem to be alright.

Has anyone else had any problems with theirs this is just making me sick Crying

Lebug,

Could it be Aster Yellows diseases? I wasn't sure if rudbeckia could get it but I know that echinacea gets it.

That's what it looks like Patti I've had my purple coneflower to get it before these aren't planted in the same place but that was years ago anyway I just hate to loose my flowers Crying

I'll check that link out after dark my hibiscus has it too if that's it and it's only three yrs old...

Got a bit of a sting from a bumble bee last night pulling weeds think I woke him up just at dusk right thru my glove it was a small one so he probably could have gotten me worse than it is my right hand is swollen on top of it but not my fingers never been stung by a bumble bee before always wondered how much hurt they could put on a person they get so big! I think I got lucky Whistling

I just read that Plantain is superb for stings. The person writing the article said he chewed it up a little and then rubbed it on the sting. Took the pain away.

I am looking for Heirloom colored carrots, reds, purples, yellows, white (yes I know its not a color lol) Anyone have any to spare?

Yep guess my rudbeckias and gailardias both have the Aster Yellows diseases Crying Couldn't find anything about my hibiscus though but I'm almost sure it's the same thing Crying

Thanks for the link Patti Big Grin

Planted red, white and blue morning glories on the side of my garage and the bugs must love my heavenly blue all that's left is the stem Whistling I have another one going to plant that one in it's place or beside it and use some insecticidal soap on it right off! Or might not have to plant another one after spraying the insecticidal soap on it those mgs are so hoggish on the space Hilarious!

I think yarrow is suppose to be good on stings too but never think of it at the time.

Hot and really muggy today and of course have not got all of my plants in the ground yet...grrr As usual Hilarious!

Thanks for the recent reports about how my seeds are growing for you. That is one of the great joys of the hoggy swap for me. Most of the dry beans were sources from the hoggy swap. My bean plants are just now getting their second set of leaves.

In my zone I think I could get three platings from these beans, they mature so quickly!
