baby Laburnum - June


Pests have taken up residence – I’ve declared war.
Picked off most leaves affected by spider mites. Snail used top of tree as viewpoint, but I suspect it had a few snacks along the way – it’s now snacking in the green bin. Bright green caterpillar (yet to be identified) can keep snail company. I’m also still looking for the culprit that ate at the bark on 2 branches. Should I cut these off? Does anyone know who’s been nibbling at the branches?
