Beware! Was out overnight on Friday and came home Saturday to find my berberis completely decimated.Apparently the culprit is sawfly. I think it's probably beyond saving.I have reluctantly sprayed it but think it's a lost cause unless anyone has any experience with sawfly.Thanks.



If it is Berberis sawfly, the RHS would like to know, link with info:-

Anything like Gooseberry then the plant will survive and regrow the leaves. Try giving it a high nitrogen feed to promote leaf growth.
