The manager of a garden centre overhears one of his nurseryman talking to a customer. ‘No, we haven’t had any of that in ages,’ says the nurseryman. ‘And I don’t know when we’ll be getting any more.’ The customer leaves and the manager walks over to give him a telling off. ‘Never tell a customer we can’t get them something,’ he says. ‘Whatever they want we can always get it on order and deliver it. D’you understand?’ The nurseryman nods. ‘So what did he want?’ asks the manager. ‘Rain,’ replies the nurseryman.

Well said, Verdun. Not to mention the millions flying about in thousands of aeroplanes daily spewing out toxic fumes just under the ozon layer!

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.
