 Thanks for showing us.  The holly (known by old country folk as the hulver) is a tenacious plant and a great survivor. I love holly.

Welcome to the forum


The whole point of using nematodes is to avoid killing bees and all the other beneficial insect that will be harmed if you use Provado. 


If you use it there's no point in using nematodes. 


If you carry out regular torchlit inspections in the evenings , checking the soil surface around the base of your plants you can get rid of a large proportion of the adults. That's what we did until the nematodes took effect.

I've always really liked the whippets I've known. When Wonky was a child her best friends family had two ... They were lovely family pets. Apparently they need short bursts of exercise rather than long walks. 


Time for bed now ... Sweet dreams all

Usually laurels are kept well trimmed then you don't get the flowers and berries.  

Are these sloes?
