Cutting back a pathway

Posted: 30/09/2015 at 15:39

I think it's a caryopteris. Usually cut back hard in late winter but given the circumstances I'd probably do it early winter and the apple as soon as the leaves drop.

They soon repair the damage to webs. I tell them if they want to live here they have to fit in with us.

We thought there might be a lack of food under the carport so OH hunts craneflies and throws them into the web

You can move them, they won't mind.

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.

How long for ground elder to die from starvation and dehydration

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

Perhaps I should bring it out of the GH in spring, leave it on its metal tray and see what happens.

It's one of those summer dormant plants which always seems a bit odd to me.

Logan says its not fully hardy, that plus the summer dormancy would put me off. 

Unless it was very cheap

Which it won't be

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)

Start a new thread with it. People will have looked at this one and know the shrub has been IDd and may not revisit

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
