Steve 309...Thank you too for your help. Your recipe sounds very interesting and well worth a try I think and I did appreciate the humour too!

Thank you Topsoiled and Logan for your responses to my query. My husband wondered if putting some membrane down might be helpful so now you've mentioned that too we'll certainly be doing that. We'll also go to the garden centre and have a look at Pyrethrin (if they've got it....we live in a very remote part of the country) and check out Jeyes fluid as well. Hopefully it will tell us on the bottles how to mix and use it. I've only ever heard of Jeyes fluid as a disinfectant and didn't know it could be used for such as this. The devastation happened really quickly and strangely the other gooseberry bush, which is right next to the eaten one, hasn't been touched at all. Many thanks again.

One of our  two gooseberry bushes has been completely stripped and I'm not sure what to do about it. Should it be cut back or will just spraying it with something keep the bush going? I would really appreciate advice. Thank you.

This is a photo of it Obelixx. Can't get into the shed at the moment to find the ticket but will let you know when I can.

Thank you for your speedy reply obelixx. The article is just what I needed to see, very clear and informative. Also, having looked at that I now know for sure that it is a climber and not a rambler as I was beginning to wonder because of the size it's got to. It's still flowering and has had masses of flowers throughout the summer. Not bad for north(ish) facing in the far north of Scotland!

Many thanks , it's appreciated.

Do climbing roses have to be treated differently to bush roses? We have one that is now too tall and will be massively high next year if it doesn't get pruned. Any advice please? Thank you.

Laurel plants

Hello. I am a new member and this is my first time on the forum. I'd like to say that we have some laurel bushes in our front garden which have been there for about 6 years. They are basically fine but do suffer from being buffeted by the wind which can be pretty strong here. This turns the leaves brown which looks rather unattractive and for the sake of appearance I have to remove them individually by hand which can be quite time consuming. I would suggest to Tracysshed that if your garden is in a windy site that maybe something other than laurel might be better because of this reason.
