Thanks Hosta - I'm in London, so ideally need a london- based one.

Mosaic virus

Oh poor you, it's so soul destroying, isn't it?

i recently had a plague of red spider mite, followed by leaf minors...did masses of damage and I nearly gave up...but a virus is a whole new can of worms.

have you tried contacting an Eco gardening online site called Defenders? John is really helpful at answering questions and has many natural predators for other pests, though I don't know if this would work for a viral attack.

good luck and never give up

As a career change, I hope.

thanks for the info.

how did it pan out for you, if I may ask, and was there a strong horticultural element?

thanks again.

I could be way out, but it looks a lot like tilleuil, or lime, to me.

Has anyone on here ever been on a garden design course?

I'd love to try my hand, but there seem to be so many versions about.

Ideally I'm looking for something I can do a day a week, over a 6-12 month period or so, in London.

London College of Garden Design looks impressive, but at 11k for a years course, I nearly fainted.

Does anyone know of the Capel Manor level 2 Garden Design course, either Enfield or Regents Park based?

 

Thank you

Isn't it just! I think the bees in our garden love Greek honey in particular
