Mike, I would get someone in to check if it's honey fungus.  at least then you will know what options you have.

I had phytophthora in a part of my garden a few years back...2 conifers, photinia and ceanothus were affected.  I removed them and now have herbaceous perennials, pittosporum, buddleia and camelia there and thriving.

good luck 

Conifer renovation (and identification)

I think it is so strange that so many people fail to see how they are patronised by the royal family.  Nothing about spite, jealousy, envy or see the royal wave copied by a young boy, to see a man dressed up like a turkey and driven in his popemobile through thousands of adoring people is crimging.

Karen, in future spray before the flowers with systemic insecticide. 

Cut back they will recover.  Do the torch thing at night and pick off those snails

touch wood, mine  are fine without having had to spray
