We live over in Oxfordshire and every year plant organically to attract our wildlife but this year we have only seen 4 dancing cabbage whites and no others??

100s bees all types maybe it was the wet early season?

Baytree Problems

Posted: 07/06/2016 at 22:51

Hello, our 2 Bay trees are now around 3 years old and were re-potted  last summer into slightly larger pots and are around 4.5 feet tall.  We appear to have dying leaves and hoped someone could advise what is causing the issues.

I know the sap from these are poisonous but inadvertently had some on my glove and without thinking wiped the corner of my eye, whilst cutting back a low slung branch -  OUCH is not the word for the intense burning sensation which took hours to stop..... Tried all the old eye remedies so the hospital for an eye wash was the only help.....

So this weekend sees my lovely large bushes being dug out from the front drive, just in case the kids brush against them..............

Hi Verdun

Are they like bamboo that they have rhizomes? If so will go out and take them out.

They are at the back of borders to cover a fence.

Maybe should have got Ribes
