I've got a pet spider, it lives under the rear screen wiper of the car. It's been miles, fortunately no rain, I don't know if it would cope with that. It nearly got lost this week when it built an extension across to a work bench and I needed to go out in the car.

It's not green at all now, no. and it was in a big pot. I'll take a photo later.

Hi Lalanthi

start with the tree in the tool bar but it doesn't work from a phone (or so I'm told, never tried)

Sawfly larvae have probably eaten the leaves and berberis do get mildewed if too dry. At this stage I'd wait and see what looks lively in spring. They can take any amount of cutting back, if necessary

Coals to Newcastle doesn't cover it gardeninglily. There are so many hellebores here from years of seeding that I had to have a cull last year.

My problem is an inability to say no when someone says 'do you want a.........'
