This is fairly typical.

 

Hi, lydiaann.....I'm almost sure this will as a result of a plum aphid infestation, look closely for them.  I would recommend a spraying of a systemic insecticide such as 'Bug Clear'.

Good luck.

Poor old Monty.....he does no right.

Given you have about a hundred years ahead of yew, they do make rather a splendid hedge.

I took this pic of some belonging to Madge at her Sandringham pile.....attending an invitation to tea, of course.

The sceptic in me wonders if Monty may be getting a rake-off.

Don't you just love this forum? Here we are on a thread intended to discuss Gardeners' World and here we are putting the football world to rights......in the days of the BBC, we would have been deported for such off-topic behaviour.
