I have brown tiny confetti which blows all over my garden from July to September – it gets everywhere – do you know which tree or bush it comes from? Thank you

Well, I am all the way in Texas so you may have a tree that does not grow on this side of the pond but last month in the park, a Cottonwood Tree was causing similar trouble. The light white fluffy fibers can accumulate in yards, get into homes, block drains and gutters, and clog up filters. These poplar trees shed cotton during June and July.
