Bee Friendly Shrub..what is it?
Good morning all- I did post a year or so back.
I have the attached - it's about 4ft tall (although it is cut back each year!) and I haven't a clue as to what it is. Any ideas?
Also, when taking this photo I noticed that a couple of the newer shoots are covered in a black bug like creature on the stem up to the tip leaf. Any ideas what they are and how to get rid of them?
I may have loads of questions as I'm not a gardener (my wife was!) and I'm trying to catalogue (I've written a bit of sofware to help me - I hope!) what is out there and how to care for them!
