What can be eating my strawberry fruits they are very thin thread like worms, as many 12 or more in each fruit can anybody help, thanks.
It might be some sort of fungus which can attack pear trees I had the same problem with pear tree last all the leaves and fruit turned black and dropped off when they were the size of thumb nail.
As anybody used a vinegar mixture to cure blackspot on roses the recomend using apple cider vineger, I was woundering if white vinegar would work the same.
Thank Edd I for got to say I have 2 window missing they got blown out and smashed in the strong winds we had last month, I am still waiting for some new ones, I am woundering if that might be one of the problems as it would get very cold at night.
