Juniperus chinensis

Pear rust spores are carried and spread mainly by Juniperus chinensis.

If you have any of these near your trees, get rid of them. In Switzerland these have to be reported to the local councils who then come to eradicate them.

Very interesting BGL, shame I'm not in the UK, otherwise I would join your website. However, have bookmarked it, and will check it regularly. Particularly liked the composting info.

I think the so-called techies have more degrees than common sense and if they stopped playing around with the site this probably wouldn't happen.

That's good news, Terri, now you've got two for the price of one! I hope they don't charge you for the 2nd one!

Obviously, I can't order plants from T&M, but have ordered many seeds from them which have grown well. Only downside is that the seed packets don't have pictures of the flowers on them, so have to just remember from the names what they are.

Gardengirl, to empty cache open your browser preferences and go "Advanced", second position, and click on "clear now". This is on Firefox though, don't know if/where you can do it on other browsers/ipad etc.

Oh dear Liz, oh what a night, what a night it was, what a night!

Well, finally this site is working again, Daniel told me to empty my cache, which I did, and whoopee, it worked! Now have to spend hours catching up again.

Verdun, saw this in the DT, what a great idea, very subtle but perfectly clear:
