The sedums are doing great. Some are even in partial shade and they seem to be thriving. But some of my plants seem awful small for July,and I notice some insect damage
I suspected a night time feeder. A quick trip with my flashlight tonight confirmed it. Earwigs and sowbugs. Oh the joy.
A quick trip to the UW Cooperative Extension site publication page tells me what insecticides will take em out. I usually go for the low impact control methods, but I don’t have high moisture or moisture retaining mulch in my beds, so those control options won’t work.
I still suspect something is feeding on the roots of the Impatiens, or it could just be my low organic matter soil. I’m not big on liquid fertilizer, but I’ll give ’em a dose. I don’t think Impatiens will be part of my landscaping plan next year. I bought them on a whim eager to try anything shade tolerant as per my July 25 post.
