Hi Cat

If you're on a PC start from the tree in the tool bar. Ignore the error message and press enter. On a phone you'd probably need to use a photo storage site.

Nothing needs spraying

The aphids could have been brushed off or hosed off with water. All insects aren't after your plants, they're part of the natural world.

Can you post some photos, the plant doesn't sound too well. Laurels do drop leaves through the summer but the black doesn't sound good.

I can think of nothing other than bat that displays the behaviour discribed.

Native plants

Good morning Jim. I have one native rowan, also a S. hupehensis which has white berries which are left til last. There are several P. avium so they aren't too deprived

I've got some baby sorbus coming along from picked up berries. They could be anything, there were several trees they could have fallen from, but the leaves are very like aucuparia.

I don't mind the taphrina Jim, it all adds to the biodiversity. But some cherries would be nice for the birds 

Tree ID needed please!

Where is this one growing and is it a recent picture? It seems a bit late for cherry blossom.  Is the small piece by the gate part of the same? 

I think that may have been in place for a good many years

Perennial sweet peas

Hi Jo

Shell them, best shelled when picked, then they can dry completely.

Were they fully ripe before they were picked? They dry later but need to ripen on the plant.

Scarifing is often helpful for peas, not sure about this particular one. Rough them up a bit and soak in hot water. If they don't swell, not worth sowing
