I've removed some of the effected branches what are they and how can i get rid of them before they destroy the tree? The plaid try is in a pot and other wise very happy. I am hoping its not the bugs that stripped my gooseberries last year ??

We've recently bought an american coffee press where you end up with a disc of dry coffee afterwards, I've been scattering the grounds under my hostas and  it seems to be keeping the slugs n snails off

I have a problem with flies in my wormery too, I don't add anything citrus or acidic like onions I've added shredded paper when it's a bit wet. I even dusted it in the past with volcanic dust mite powder that is used for chickens to treat mites which was suggested to me by another member but I can't find that thread ...

Anybody else had experience of this ? worms seem very happy I just hate opening the lid i have to stand back whilst they escape. I have the Can o worms wormery and it sits outside in a sheltered spot.
