Looks like Apple scab. This is one of the many forms of spot causing fungus which attack almost every plant there is. Spray with Copper sulphate (if you can get it still).

You need to use a soap based insecticide to dissolve the waxy covering, then the insect underneath will die.

I grow it and struggle to keep it going, even in the woodland situation it is supposed to enjoy. They are also very expensive to buy.

Yes, they are suckers and you need to remove them. Try to find where they originate from on the root system and remove as close to the point of origin as possible. Any piece left will begin to regrow.

Any tree which is grafted has the potential to produce suckers, especially if the roots have been damaged in any way. Sad fact of gardening life really.

Best way to prune this flowering shrub?

Posted: 29/05/2014 at 10:05

Looks like one of the many Weigelas. We prune ours after flowering and reduce each branch by about a third.

Can anyone identify this flower for me please?

Lewisia cotyledon

anybody know what these are ??????

If that seed/berry has orange seeds inside it then it is Euonymus, if it is just a fleshy berry then it is Lonicera.

what is this?

Posted: 26/05/2014 at 21:24

Or Goatsbeard perhaps?

Plant identity?

As I said, there is a smaller growing version of this, possibly N. bulgaricum and that only grows to about 18 inches (here) and which produces hundreds of tiny bulbs and so is impossible to remove. I have been waging war on this for years.
