Not seen many pests at all this year.  Funnily enough, I had a major prune in the front garden.  I'd had a philadelphus for years but it's not flowered for a long time.  A honeysuckle had found its way in there but also had these curly brown leaves so I started pruning but ended up ripping the lot out.  It just all came away as I hate pulling plants up.  lets loads of light in now so hope the lecky bill's much cheaper.

I'm in North West.  The tree is in an area of about 1 metre square but there is also a climbing rose in there too.  I try to keep it weed free and ensure there is plenty of water when the weather's dry.

advice please.  I have an Apple bush that has previously produced lovely big apples but for the past couple of years has had curly, brown leaves with very small fruit.


is it time to put it out of its misery?  Can I still use the fruit?  Can it be saved?

I'm reading this and thinking about the large clump of bracken in my tiny garden and, yes, it butts up against lawn and goes no further. One side is up against the garage base, the other against several inches of slaye and the back against the fence so all in all it appears to be contained. Glad I read this though as I was planning to extend the border upto the fern which I now won't do.
