    Hi,
    Wondered if anyone could help with advice about a Berberis I have in a pot. It cannot be potted on as it's in the biggest pot my garden will take. The plant is about 10 years old, was looking fine early spring but appears to be dying off in the middle and seems to be attracting a lot of aphids.Do I lop off the poorly bits or do I discard the plant altogether, which I would rather not do?
    Regards, Gloria.
