DEFRA warns of Citrus Longhorn Beetle in the UK

Gardeners are being warned about an invasion of the Citrus Longhorn Beetle (Anoplophora chinensis) in UK that has been imported from China, via Holland in a batch Acer palmatum and distributed via mail order. Whilst the beetle is know to affect the Acer it is able to damage oak, beech, ash, maple, apple, pear, willow, hibiscus, horse chestnut, hornbeam, hazel, birch, mulberry and rose. The larva or pupa can remain undetected for up to three year before emerging - the DEFRA website has more information on the infestation and how to spot symptoms of Citrus Longhorn Beetle infestation or you can download a .pdf document on how to deal with the Citrus Longhorn Beetle.

Why this Garden Works

Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.
