Trees and shrubs waking up in my garden. Beautiful day, hard frost at night, predicted all week, luckily I  make sure my nana is wrapped up in the shed, won't be much longer before I bring my nana into the cold room downstairs 

managed to finish my week's work early this morning so I got out to move some stuff and potted up other twiggy-sprouting things. Everything's poised to pop, even my nana although it might need feeding up first

Working all day , no time for fancy stuff like planting 

getting my nana out the shed every day at the moment though, it's still alive

Beautiful sunnyday here 

removed my acer that's got Virmiculum wilt.  Day the bins got emptied so I put it straight in although I can't possibly get rid of the soil, planted a pittospernum there, I was thinking of moving it anyways and it's not listed as susecptable. 

Geums are safe as are iris and any spikey single leaf plants, but I have a grand rosemary bush and a Lupin Masterpiece close by and they are both in the dodgy list 

tidied up a bit out front and planted new shrub in a gap.

tulips are all noses up, all Clematis going crazy except those early ones that are still snoozing, found a few perennials peaking about so happy days mostly

I have just confirmed that my Acer palmatum has Virmiculum wilt 

I've read up but I  don't know what to do. There is no chemical cure, half of it is dead 

should I leave the plant alone and hope it regrows or remove it straight away?
