What Beetles are on my Lavender ?

Hiya jennie

Not seen these myself but have heard of them over past couple of years.  They can cause a lot of damage I thnk.  Can you pick them off?  Or use a systemic insecticide.

And I bet you will enjoy eating those currants with our Cornish cream!

Can you plant it out later into the ground?  Then you may get 18 currants next year

A miracle, well I think so.

Welcome clem

On a shady wall or fence Nellie moser is very good.  What climbers do you already have Clem?  Scent Important?  I have a nice variegated jasmine.  I also have 2 different honeysuckles over an, perhaps 2 or 3 different honeysuckles for differing colour and scent?  How much fence do yOu have left to cover?

Fairygirl, I'm really Dverdi..........!!

Ill get my coat

What can I plant here.?

Mrs Garden

Go for the usual dark green form.  The yellow variety would not grow there.  Sarcoccoca would do well there and has fantastic scent in spring.
