Nude Gooseberry Bush
« on: June 16, 2009, 06:16 »
My gooseberry bush has lost all it's leaves. It now looks like a freak plant with loads of fruit but not a single leaf. The leaves have'nt just droped off as the spines are still there, sticking out all over the place. I can't imagine the birds eating the leaves instead of the fruit. The whole thing looks really weird.
There is no better show of antisipation than a man sowing seeds in a field.

Just pop "sawfly" into a forum search.

A lot have reported this problem this year.

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
