The photos enlarged for me - the leaves aren't hawthorn-ish - they look more pyracantha-ish to me - but if there are no spines

Sorry, umbellifers are plant with flat heads of flowers like fennel, cow parsley, ammi majus, angelica etc 

Hoverflies love them.

So sad

Hi Sandra

That looks like aphid damage to me.  Not a lot you can do about it and a healthy tree will not be bothered by it.  

Encourage ladybirds and bluetits to your garden - the bluetit fledglings hoover up the aphids in our garden.  

Hoverflies also eat aphids, so planting lots of umbellifers that aphids love will encourage them into your garden too. 

Good luck

Ideas for area near water butt?

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 17:14

Hi Dave 

I'd worry about a chiminea being there - it might melt the water butt!!!

What about a Fatsia in a big pot - it would love it there and would disguise the water butt a bit 

Help needed
