What should I do about a viburnum tinus spolit by slugs?
I have a big viburnum tinus which has been blighted by snails/slugs for a few years now. It has become more and more unslightly - but given that it fills a huge space at the back of the garden I've not wanted to get rid of it or cut it back. However I have now concluded that something has to be done as the leaves are so wholly and horrid - even when it flowers, it doesn't look good. Should I prune it right back and if so when - or just dig it out completely and start again with something new?
