Hello Sue and Everyone,
Thanks for this interesting article Sue, the advice is so good always.
So many times in my earlier gardening life I fell for the 'rescue plant syndrome' - but no more, experience has taught me that!
I am lucky though, I have never had to quarantine any of my plants newly bought in - but I have had to separate those which later fell to something sticky or unwelcome.
I find home-made sprays good here but I have a definite approach to gardening ... everything has to pay its way, so if a plant is not performing consistently (given all the care it needs) then it is out I am afraid.
It is such a joy to pot up stuff - ah yes!
