What are the most important pests and diseases in UK gardens?
Thank you for participating in our survey - It will take no longer than 5-10 minutes. Your input is helping to prioritise RHS research on those pests and diseases considered most important in UK gardens to better understand their biology. This could potentially lead to better control, thereby giving your beloved plants the best chance of survival and keeping your gardens/allotments as healthy as possible.
The following questions are designed so that you don't need to be an experienced gardener in order to share your experiences with any pests and diseases you may have encountered. However, the more information you can provide us with, the more useful your data.
Some groupings of pests or diseases overlap with others in the survey to allow gardeners who are unfamiliar with the more specific groups to give their opinion on broader ranges of pests or diseases (eg. aphids, woolly aphids and rosy apple aphids are all included as separate categories). However if you are familiar with both the broad and specific groupings used in this survey, please give responses for ALL levels of groupings present in your garden.
