I have some 2year old field maples in a baby native hedge of hornbeam hawthorn alde hazel etc. Just the field maple has very sickly leaves with a mildew like coating. Could this just be the autumn leaf fall or something more sinister

I saved all my teasel heads from last year. please can you tell me are the seeds the actual spines on the flower head or are they inside these spines? should I just scatter the flower heads to spread the seeds or sow them in trays?

Also could I put the whole flower heads ina bird feeder?

Gooseberry tops curling up

Yes, I think You are right.... It's aphids! Will cutting the tops off not spoil this years crop? I have just picked some baby gooseberries like the books tell you to. just worried that cutting the tops off might affect the rest of the crop. Do you think garlic spray will kill the aphids?

Can someone please tell me if this is the start of a sawfly infestation? Gooseberries are otherwise v healthy with young berries in abundance. Should I cut the tops off?

Can I use woodchip to mulch around the base of newly planted apple and plum trees?
