Think I'm getting quite good at growing my own Nut

I love figwort - the first wild plant I consciously learned to identify when I was a child - however, if you were going to offer me some Nut, I think I'll decline, thanks all the same - don't have the room for them here.

I've always been able to remove them by hand, sort of scraping and scrubbing, but I've never had to deal with a bad infestation.  Once you've had it you keep your eyes open for it.

There is no reason why your plants should only have one problem - such are the pleasures of gardening!!!  

I've never had a problem with spider mites and usually they're only a real nuisance in greenhouses or on indoor plants, but we've had a mild winter and now a warm dry spell so they could well be affecting outdoor plants.

I can think of two possibilities:

Woolly aphids http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=724 

or

one of the scale insects  http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=557 

Do either of those look right?
