I've cheated, I had to climb into the field next to me to find them, I was actually looking for ladybirds when I come across the caterpillars, I've been out at 7 the last 2 mornings getting fresh nettles,lol

No I haven't watered it much as we have had a lot of rain so haven't needed to.

Yes got it from a very good garden centre so will give it awhile and see does it improve

Morning Verdun

It was in pot when bought but I planted into ground now and there was new shoots almost straight away but no sign now of any new shoots just dying.

It';s in my raised bed that I built last year and soil seems to drain ok but the corner where it is ,is partial shade so I'm wondering is it to wet, I was thinking of lifting it out and digging in some grit to help it drain better.

The tree is only about 2ft at the moment.

I had to remove a pale white slug off it the other day which was half way up it?
