Horse chestnut leaf mining moth?

Posted: 28/08/2017 at 11:30

Does anyone have any experience of Horse chestnut leaf-mining moth?


Our neighbours very large (i.e. Taller than our 4 storey Victorian terrace) horse chestnut tree has in recent years shed its leaves early in August/September and our garden has been taken over by loads of moths. Could this be leaf mining moth and is there anything we can do about it? The tree is subject to a TPO.


Thanks in advance!

Plant ID please

sorry yes, we've definitley got two rhubarb that have come back from last year....it's the standalone stem that I'm not sure about.


The fence is our neighbours garden and I have heard that they had a Japanese knotweed problem a few years ago so am a little bit concerned. Although I would have though if it was knotweed, it would have appeared before now...?


thanks for your advice!

Horse Chesnut with yellow leaves

Hello, 


Our next door neighbour has a huge horse chestnut tree in their garden and the leaves have recently started to get patches on yellow on them. It's subject to a TPO so can't be pruned or cut back without planning permission. Any ideas what the problem is?


Thanks

Leaning Prunus tree

Thanks for your reply. It's odd thought as there are no other trees nearby (the one in the picture is in next doors garden) and its in full sun for the majority of the day. Any thought?

We have a young prunus that was planted about 3 years ago but has recently started leaning to one side. I've tied it to a stake to straighten up, but it's top top that seems too heavy. Should I reduce the weight in the top half? Any suggestions welcome! Thanks
