same as Dove. 


You'll never achieve a balance of pests and their predators if you keep killing the predators. Insecticide kills the lot, not just 'pests'. The insect eating birds won't turn up if there are no insects (or, worse, they'll be eating poisoned insects) and everything goes out of balance.


If it's got worse with using sprays try a couple of years without sprays and see if things improve, good luck

seeds yes, you can leave or cut off. I expect most serious fuchsia growers cut them off .

I can't see either of those plants taking over the world. If they were going to do that they would have done it by now. Pampas grass especially was everywhere years ago  but fortunately much less now. 


If invasive plants are banned, (EU or otherwise), does it affect anything other than imports?


It seems pointless when the plants are here.

Don't let them seed and they can't go anywhere.


I live on the dry side of the country but I've seen obviously self seeded gunnera growing along the side of a lane in Norfolk
