I had oyster scale on my acer last summer Got some great advice from berghill I cleaned it with soapy water and meth spirits It came back lovely this summer and then went downhill again I have also noticed symptoms on my pussy willow Is it contagious? Should I get rid of these lovely plants Would repotting in new soil help? Any advice much appreciated Regards Nadger

Hello My lovely acer has just taken a turn for the worst On one side all of the foliage has suddenly died I then noticed what looks like a white fungus with brown spores in the middle on the trunk I have sprayed it with a fungus spray, does anyone know what this could be? Will the tree survive? Should I repot it (it's in a container) ? Any advice much appreciated Regards Nadger

I have a gap at the end of my pyracantha hedge that needs filling Could add another pyracantha but would prefer something that flowers ,with thorns for security, and is fast growing Soil is heavy clay Any suggestions? Nadger the badger.
