Swiss Sue, borrow a pig, it will find the nuts!

Valerian! it self seeded in my bit of garden outside the fence, and I don't like pink. But I have seen a white version which is quite nice. The original pink version is one of the worst thugs I have ever come across; it will seed in gravel with membrane underneath, between paving stones, in fact anywhere.

Bay tree dying - Newt?

ThunderB, you are not very far north, I am in Norfolk and have lost several Bays over the last few years, partly because of the cold, partly there is some fungas/disease that is attacking Bays so I have been told. My neighbours thought that they had lost a big Bay, but eventually it revived.

I agree with nutcutlet, they do not need ericaaceous compost, in fact that may be stressing it. Give it some time and it may recover.

Yellow sticky fly traps

As a new owner of a greenhouse I became aware that white fly can be a major curse in the G/H. Yellow sticky fly traps were advised, went to various cheap places; ended up having to get them from B&Q at £4.98 for 5! If the greenhouse gets quite hot you have to change them quite frequently; it starts to get expensive. Online, I found American recipes for making your own involving stuff we can't get here (Tanglewood) Another recipe suggested coating yellow card with petroleum jelly (Vaseline). Has anyone had any success with this?
