We have three like that, appeared this year. They will be weeded out along with the other 10 th0usand seedlings.

Woodlice

What you have is a classic case of secondary attack. The fruit is nibbled by a mollusc (snail or slug) then the woodlice move in to the nice wet interior. Deal with the molluscs and the woodlice cannot easily damage the fruit. Their mouth parts are not strong enough to get through the skin.

Not really the best conditions for them, they like dappled shade and protection from the wind.

They like the heat.

Red Spider Mite

If you can see them with the naked eye and they are bright red, then they are not Red spider mites. They are generally too small to see and they are brown, not red. What you have is a large number of newly hatched 'blood spiders'. Nice useful things which grow up and eat greenfly etc.

Mites by the way have 10 legs whereas spiders of course have 8.

Is this a kind of Euphorbia ?

Yes, one of the weedier ones. I would remove it, as it soon seeds all over the place.

Sounds like one of the scale insects, oyster scale perhaps. They need to be removed with a brush and a soap based insecticide. The white is wax and it needs to be dissolved before the insecticide can get at the insect proper.

Geum 'Mrs Bradshaw' dead/dying - rescue?

Posted: 19/05/2014 at 21:17

I find all Geums prefer a cool position. It sounds like yours are in too hot a place.

Try taking them out and potting them up and placing in a  shady position and hope that they grow some new leaves.
