Mine has done the same this year, some of the smaller branches and tips have died but I cut them back and they have started to grow again. My olive seems to get worse if I leave it where it catches the cold winter wind, so we pull it near to the house for the winter.

Talkback: Mice in the garden

Mice have eaten the sweetpea seedlings and begonias tips in the greenhouse plus the peas and beans in the raised beds. I have baited several traps but the woodmice are so light they don't get caught. This morning I managed to catch a very small woodmouse which I set free in the field behind us.It looked at me with it's big brown eyes as if to say where do I go now.I have been feeeling guilty alday in case this little mouse had a young family waiting in the nest.I can't help hoping it finds it's way home.
