Another whinge, this time about sticky labels. I bought some nice plastic pots for my Auricula theatre plants. Great except that one out of each set of 5 is vitually useless because of the label. Even with a dab of Turps, the pot still has a mark on it. Totally unnecessary too!

Honeysuckle - white powder on leaves

Mildew, a symptom of drough at the roots. Water well and use a Fungicide spray. Remove any fallen leaves.

No, Spiraea is more likely. possible Spiraea salicifolia, but there are lots of others with flowers like that.
