Pyracantha berry problem

Posted: 06/12/2017 at 20:19

Hopefully some rigorous clearing of leaves will help keep the problem under control and get the autumn colour back in your garden. 

Good luck

It sounds to me like Pyracantha scab ... infor here 

Where have all the brussels gone?

You mean that there were sprouts and now there are none?  

Sounds to me as if somebody has been helping themselves

Oh Hosta ... maybe you'd better stay at home and give up taking holidays?

What did you think of the Degas BL?  I love his work ... amazing sense of line ... we're trying to find time to fit in a visit ... I wish it was on longer.

Truth is Dove that I find the world so depressing, and mental at the moment that I retreat into things that make me happy. Which in turn makes me happy and hopefully I then have the emotional energy to fight the BS and spread a little joy to others. Christmas trees make me happy! 

 I'm working on the premise that if I ignore all the stupidity it'll go away ... it's just attention-seeking
