I'm not having a problem (touch wood) and I can only see one of each post from you.

Hope you get it sorted.

Any suggestions about what else it might like to eat - that's a rather precious rose only planted this year - do you think it might like forsythia?  Got plenty of that.

Good point David - particularly because the fruits look so like tomatoes that children may think that's what they are.

We  saw some Ash Dieback in saplings and coppiced ash in hedgerows at Foxley Woods - it was horribly unmistakably awful - they looked obviously diseased 

Ash Trees

We're in Norfolk (right in the middle of Ash Dieback area) and have two mature ash trees at the bottom of our garden.  They were very slow to come into leaf this year and one in particular has only just filled out - Nutcutlet also mentioned that her ash trees were very late into leaf as well.  No signs of any dieback (fingers crossed) just very very late for some reason.  Also mine haven't flowered this year, so no problems with ash keys and seedlings later in the year.  Last year was a bumper year for them.

You'll be quite a bit later than us so I'm sure your ash trees will be leafing up soon.

It must be good news, after all the weather saying is, "If the oak be out before the ash we will only have a splash, but if the ash be out before the oak we shall surely have a soak."

No matter what the Met Office tells me, I'm expecting nothing more than a splash
