well done! leylandyii are suited for small gardens and will leave the soil poor.They are of the seventies when they were bought cheap and on mass from supermarkets for hedging .
its because they like dry poor soil and that's why sometimes you see them growing well next too walls.
it could more be but I doudt it, more like small snails or slugs.
Did you cut back in October to two stems? and it will need watering well and feeding .the red blistering I am not sure of with out seeing it. I have a vine which I have had for 38 years .
yes if you water well every day,a can full. they now have a very pretty small variety for baskets and pots ,you need to visit a garden centre or nursery.
I have noticed many trees and bushes (in my own garden as well) have been hit with this dying brown patches . When on holiday in Cornwall I noticed rows of different trees all affected on the same side ,brown and dying patches.It might be they can not take all the wet weather of winter or by some sort of virus.when you are out and about note the trees and bushes around you and see if they are affected too!
money maker may be!
once a year the ants fly with wings ,now they may be of either sex but it is for one day only ,if they are causing major trouble as in aphids which they farm,use a nettle spray.
it might have a fly that lays its eggs on the fruit leaving a sticky glue like substance and and makes the fruit drop and distort.
for me no,its up to you.
