RIP Gazanias

I loved these gazanias, an impulse buy at the time and not expected to last long but they gave enduring colour to the garden year round.

Now they are gone, victims of a newly rigid policy against leaf miner! Gone too are 4 of the 6 sunflowers. Not happy Jan!

Hi Prue~~ That sucks! For me it's usually the confounded aphids. I have little tolerance, and like you I'm tossing the host plant. I hope you'll be able to locate another Gazania soon.

Grace - totally! Glad someone else takes the harsh method of getting rid of the infected plants. I got aphids last year but for some reason they mysteirously disappeared this year (not complaining.) Still haven't decided whether to go another gazania or something different, in the meantime some basil and coariander will fill the pots for a quick green grow.
