Many thanks for all your replies. They are fascinating creatures. We do mulch with the compost and put well rotted manure down. They must be there but deeper as fidgetbones suggested.

HI

We have a very productive compost system but do not seem to have many earthworms in the garden soil. I read up on wormeries but found you cannot use earthworms. How can I increase our earthworms, maybe we do have lots but they hiding!

Advice please

Thank you everyone for replying. I think I will leave it and see what happens. For interest the plant is about 2ft high and the large shoots are over 6ft! I have included,I hope, a picture of the leaves. The left one is from the old stem and the other from the new shoots with a smaller leave growing from same leaf bud

My thanks for tip. It is Deutzis 'Strawberry Fields'. I have included a picture the plant itself is quite small and the light green and tall shoots are the ones i'm worried about!.

New to this forum so how the pictures get through.

Regards

My Deutzia has flowered beautifully but has grown huge new shoots with very large leaves. It looks as though it has reverted but they are growing from the flowering stems. Do I cut it back and risk having no flowers next year. Please help me.
