Thankyou so much for quick reply, will get onto that tomorrow after the trip to buy the product / Products. I really thought the hedge would have to come out which would have been a huge problem for us. 

Thank you you again Eddy truely appreciated.

Please can anyone identify what the spots are and what I can do about them

Most of the leaves have small silvery /pale brown spots surrounded by a largebrown/ purplelish larger circle.

These spots have affected the whole 40ft privet hedge at the bottom of the garden.

Will the new leaves be OK ?

Will I be able to save it by spraying it if so what would be recommended.

Any help will be gratefully accepted, I am really worried the whole hedge will have to come out.

Many thanks in anticipation

paper clips great idea. I won't complain about the "rubbish" kept just in case in the draw in the garage any more. Such a useful stash. Strawberry harvest not very large with two baskets but maybe next year I will try again... Luckily the slugs haven't found them yet.

 Hi All, my first time at strawberry baskets too, with the same problem. OH made me some wire hooks shaped like a number two to put into pots and hang from the side of the baskets. I will try to post some pics to explain better. As FG and BH said they don't take long to develop roots.

Wow how lovely, as a child my aunt Edna used to tell me the spotted marks inside the flowers where the marks left by the bees after wiping three feet !!!!!

Just looked at old notes on flower arranging and Ruscus is also a possibility Doris. I still can't get the photo up. Good luck

Hi everyone don't post very often as everyone is so knowledgable and I learn loads from reading your posts, so thank you all for that.

I think your greenery is Gaultheria shallon (salal) I have used this in flower arranging before. I can only get it from a florist. I did try to take semi ripe cuttings once but sadly without success. It really is lovely and lasts for ages In arrangements. Hope this helps,

Thanks for that Verdun. Many of my delphiniums were 7ft this year, and the plants are huge at the base now. I find bamboo is difficult to get in straight. Will look for steel fabricators in the telephone book. A great idea to make our own, thank you again
