Been doing that for the last 10 years and we still get them and no one else round here grows them either. In the end I am slowly but surely removing the plants . What is the point of a load of green leaves with no flowers?

Fascinated by Fasciation

Normally the fasciation is only for the one season and the plant reverts to normal afterwards. However we have a Veronicastrum where the flowers have been fasciated like that for the last three years. I keep meaning to take a piece of growth and see if it happens then too.

Will have to go find a picture for you.

Tried it a few years ago, the Ground elder choked them out of existence.

Stellar cherry fan trained

Agree with ChrissieB here. We had the same problem with our Morello Cherry until I gave it a good spraying in late Winter before the leaves appeared with a Winter Wash (Soft horticultural soap preparation).

Our Stella has done far better with another set of Cherry trees near by. However it still does not stop the birds from taking the fruit when they are still white!

Narcissus fly

Sadly there is no treatment available to the amateur. Our garden is riddled with it too and we have gradually lost most of our Narcissus to it. It also attacks Snowdrops too by the way.

We have replaced ours with various species Tulips.

The one most often grown is the variegated one aka Milk Thistle. Biennial sadly.
