Please can you help me with a gardening problem? I have a shrub in my garden that was there when we bought the house 30 years ago. We have no idea as to the name of this shrub. Can you identify if please? That is question one. Secondly, something has either eaten it or it has developed some kind of disease. From the photos attached, could you identify the problem and tell me what action I should take to rectify this? Many thanks. Ian Martin

I believe you have a Rhododendron or Azalea shrub.
If this shrub flowers for you, that can help id it more accurately.
You certainly have a pest issue on your plant.
Treat the plant with Neem Oil. Neem Oil will take care of most insects.
Here are some links with more information.
