..snails have been a big problem this season..they eat the flower buds to the point there may be none left on the stem, or just one or two parts of the bud that remain...

What's your acronym? A guessing game......

Cornus Kousa

...your Cornus kousa should flower well next year...I've bought then in flower before and they miss out the following year as they're making a lot of growth...

alternatively...have you pruned it at all this winter? if you have, you might have cut off the flower buds..

..I thought you would like it....do hope it's that...we shall have to wait and see...

...Orlaya was used in the best in show garden this year for Laurent Perrier...it's also popular at Great Dixter gardens apparently... and as a companion for roses.... it'll be a bit of a shame now if it proves to be something else...lol....

I cant kill them either, hate em with a passion as they are destroying my garden but......they do have a right to be here like any other animal insect etc so I don't feel I have a right to kill them but to just perhaps forcibly remove them from said garden.

...I agree with that....exactly...mine go over the fence [no neighbours]...if they come back...just have to do it again...lol...
