Hello a very difficult question to answer however here goes the Golden Mealy bug we think came in from New Zealand  went with plants to a Meconopsis Enthusiast who sold plants to others thus spreading the problem the Mealy bug is easily recognised will attack other plants as well beware do not buy or take any plants from unknown sources sorry but I risk to name where this came from be careful cheers.

I have been trying a higher percentage of Perlite for my young seedlings so far they look ok I think this helps air flow around seedlings and holds moisture better will see later if all goes well,

I have been busy recently lifting and splitting Meconopsis weather has been perfect for this with lots of rain and cooler days I avoid the few warm days we have had. I pot some plants for sale then prepare a new bed by adding leaf mould any composts we have and a little fertiliser . I am also trying some new areas by making up ridges like potato rows to plant on top of these winter here very wet and soil like porridge I hope these ridges will give more drainage

Hello thanks for these suggestions and sure it would be good for members to be able to swap if they are not able to attend meetings but it is also important to have plants at meetings maybe  this should be discussed cheers.
