Help! I'm having problems with my Bay Tree

If you get the bugs again, stick your finger over the end of hose and spray them off with a jet of water.  Cut off any curled leaves.

Thanks all. There is always a place in my garden for 'weeds' - unless they don't know who's boss!

I've chucked them about before but I never see them again! Would like to have a go in a slightly more controlled environment

I have some scarlet Pimpernel in my garden. The weather last year seems to have suited it and it is doing well. However it is dangerously close to the path !

What is the best way to propagate it? If I collect seeds, what should I do with them?

how long from seed to fruit?

Will send photos. Had compared leaves to my Apple and plum trees. You're right. They're not hairy .

I got f free packet of mixed perennial seeds about 7 years ago- I like surprises!

Two of the seeds have turned into trees. The shiny bark and slightly hairy leaves make me think they might be fruit trees. I keep them pruned but have left some branches in case it flowers on old wood. 

My question is: how long does it take a fruit tree to fruit from seed?

 

 

I need a shade loving plant that does not need much watering.

Thanks everyone. I think I'll cut back half of them, leave the rest and see what happens!

Wild primroses all over my garden. They are talking up space needed for summer planting. I don't want to lose them but can I prune them?
