if you click on the picture when it goes to what should be the enlarged version and there is onley a little square icon in the top left corner look at the bar at the top of the page where it says Gardenersworld,com/forum etc etc  click on that and backspace untill you reach JPeg and then hit enter it will then show the enlarged image

no its not so bad i hope i caught them in time to stop so much damage, i will be doing a check every morning.

we live in a very windy spot and i understood the gooseberry sawfly didnt like to be exposed to wind thats why im not sure, but its my first year with gooseberrys although i have grown lot of other fruit

 I have just found these on my gooseberry bush, i have looked over it very carefully and removed some leaves with them on and squished a few, they are on random leaves not really in the middle of the bush and there are none on the blackcurrant

do you think they are sawfly or something else

Greenfly by the million

i have had an elite greenhouse for many years 6x8, i have just ordered a new one 8x14 whatever you choose wont be big enough.

so my advice is go for the biggest you can fit in and make sure its TALL enough

The daftest thing you've done in your garden
