Re: Is there a name for this problem?

It's very annoying for you David, that you have been sold a damaged and incorrectly named plant; I suppose at least you can only learn from the experience. For comparison, here's a photo of my S. heinzii, part of a plant bought years ago from a (I hope!) reputable nurseryman. The main plant died a c...

Re: A shock discovery

Thanks Ali and Malcolm for this reassuring advice. My main concern was that the queen wasp would get trapped in the greenhouse and maybe start a nest there, but it sounds as though that is very unlikely.
