Blind raspberries

We didn't have much fruit on the autumn raspberries and have just found out why, the squirrel was on the canes enjoying the fruit for his breakfast !!!! I was not impressed with him 

Very poorly Rowan

I too have a problem with a Rowan, it has dropped its leaves and has had very few berries, I agree with you Gary it could be too much rain, hope it picks up next year

I think it is Leycesteria or Pheasant Berry, we have one in our garden which is quite attractive but seeds down profusely.

Spindly Bamboo

We have a Phyllostachys Nigra which is a well established clump, planted in a slate area, after the first year it was not watered, mulched or fed. After rain it flops a little but soon stands up again. Perhaps you are cossetting it a little, maybe it needs toughening up. Good luck.

I purchased mine from a garden centre who sold both male and female plants. I also cut them back quite severely as they put on a huge amount of growth

Problem bamboo

I planted a bamboo several years ago not realising it was invasive, it formed large clumps also spread by runners under the membrane and slate into the lawn. I killed the main clumps with weedkiller, several applications, which has been successful but some of the runners are still alive. I paint the leaves with glyphosate and am slowly winning. Hurrah.

Kiwi problem

I have two Kiwi plants, one male one female which are around 5 years old, they have flowered and fruited a little but last year they surpassed themselves by growing 75 fruit. This year there has been nothing at all, I think it is all to do with the weather.
