Going abroad this summer?

Then you need to know about Xylella Fastidiosa. This is a KILLER DISEASE affecting a huge number of trees, shrubs, herbs and plants. It is currently sweeping through Europe and has wiped out swathes of olive groves in Italy and herbs in Spain and France as well as other countries. If a plant with Xylella Fastidiosa is discovered, all plants within a 100 metre radius must be destroyed!

SO PLEASE DO NOT BRING BACK ANY CUTTINGS, PLANTS, SHRUBS OR TREES FROM CONTINENTAL EUROPE.
