I think that what's happened is that a spider's web has caught these little black bits of something - then it's rained and the spider's web has dissolved in the rain, leaving the detritus behind on the leaves.

Not a problem for the plant 

Help - should I chop down the tree?

Hi, to post a picture on here you need to click on the small green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions to upload a photo from your pc.  I'm afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet. 

Property developers are usually quite careful about what type of trees they plant around the  houses.  Not all trees are a menace to drains etc.

Absolutely no way would I spray it on something I was going to eat - have a look at this 

Scroll down through the pages and read what Jeyes themselves say about their product.  

I never use the stuff.

Clematis it dying?

Crikey!  That doesn't look very happy does it?  I wonder if it's really too warm for it there in what you say is a sunny spot.  Clematis like to have their roots in the cool shade.
