Is my acer no more?

Posted: 22/05/2014 at 16:03

I have these cotton wool things on my acer too. Its like white candy floss ) cotton candy ) some of the leaves shrivelled and went crispy but I put that down to its spring all the leaves have come back so I repotted it and noticed the wooly stuff. I wiped it away with a soft toothbrush but its all back again so I am off out to spray it with pest killer

Hebe Help!!

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 16:06


I am no gardener, I inherited my Hebe last autumn along with a lot of my late mums shrubs. It was never potted on, it was never ever fed and only got watered when it rained. It was left in a shaded corner for years....I can remember using it for a goal post back in about 1970 so its well over 40 years old now. When I got it home I it was very leggy, and tatty. I had not a clue what I was doing so I just pruned everything off....put it in a better pot with some compost and left it outside over the winter. Now it has grown back, there are loads of branches and its lush with foliage. The purple flowers are just about to break open.
