For the last three or four years two of my gooseberry bushes have been eaten to a stump by sawfly. Frankly, they looked like they were dying. I had another bush about 12 feet away that was never affected, so I contented myself with that and never did anything about the others. Lo and behold, this year they've grown strong and healthy, loads of fruit, not a sign of the sawfly (fingers crossed). I've no idea what made them go away (maybe the very cold winter?) but they've gone, and it certainly wasn't any chemicals cos I don't use them.

Indeed.  Crossing fingers for next year.  They did the same to this bush last year so it's war next year!
