Spider question

I missed that B3. Auto-correct for garden spider?  

Identity help needed please!

It's not Bay. Could be the Olearia that Berghill suggests. I'm not familiar with the loquat.

What were the flowers like before it had its haircut bex?

we have a lot of different species of spider in the uk

Have a look at this lot.

The whole site is worth a visit

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

Taken over by aliens describes that situation very well Ceres.


Fuschia "cherry" thingies

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

Gunnera Manicata

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.
