I am working some gardens in stratford and some of the shrubs which I think are viburum tinus have brown marks on the leaves and the leaves are sickly looking, and when it rains the shrubs give off a very nasty smell. Do you know what this is and how I deal with it? Thanks John



Hello John, could it be viburnham beetle and are there any signs of powdery mildew, had the same problem a few years back with a viburnham tinus, its leaves were full of shot hole and powdery mildew was present with a very pungent smell, i cut most of it back [April] and all the new growth i sprayed with bugclear which seemed to do the trick.
