We have this problem coming through from our neighbours garden and I've been at it for two years. I actually thought that it was my fault when it came back this year. This article and the comments make me feel a bit better, not so much as my fault then?? Will keep at it next year and the one after and after that, etc, etc.

ALSO (while I'm on the subject), this same Acer is about 3ft (90 cms) in height and is VERY spindley. We've had it about 6 years from approx. 2-3ft (60-90cms) in the same pot and it's always been gangley. It's nothing like the ones you (I) see in other peoples gardens and I think that it's a shame as they are such lovely trees. Oh yes, it's a maroon one (not that it'll make a difference I'm sure).

These box cones look really lovely and smart, just nice for the festive season.

I don't have any lime trees so I don't have this problem (yet). I have been looking at buying lime trees this Summer tho'. I saw this article and thought how strange it looked, not sure if it's put me off or not. I'll have to give it another thought.

I know that this isn't quite the same thing but this Summer I'd some small (fingernail size and smaller), white.....looked like cotton wool, on the joints of branches and knotches of our 'Japanese acer', which is in a large pot of acid soil. I removed them all (there was a lot of it) with tissue but I daren't look in the tissue (just a wee bit squeamish). I was wondering if they were the same thing or not?

I think that this is really helpful as we have had this problem and it really takes over your fruit (in our case, pears), and you're left with spoilt fruit instead of a lovely succulent crop.
