Just been hearing on the telly the awful disease thats hit Italy and now in France which is killing the Olive trees. Not like the Ash which just affects the ash tree. This disease affects all trees and is spread by insect. Luckily its not in the UK or Ireland yet but the way so many trees are imported it wouldn't surprise me if its not long before it rears its ugly head

This bacteriia Xylella fastidiosa has being doing the rounds this week in national papers and the internet, it effects Olive tres in italy and France it is also reported to effect lavander, will have to watch and see what happens or if it is a media story or something worse.
We are getting into spring now and Bees will be coming out of hibernation so the next big story will be Bees in danger no pollinators etc...
