Morning Verdun

I had Love Your Garden on - were they gardeners or set designers???  If they did that to my garden I'd probably ........ cry   (at the very least).

Ah, light begins to dawn - you're in Oz, you're an Aries and you're a gardener


Are you seeking advice, offering it or publicising your gardening business?

 If the latter, you're probably wasting your time on here - most of our members (with a few notable exceptions ) are in the UK, and my guess is you'd charge too much mileage to come and tend my lawns

Good morning Oscar - whereabouts is your garden/yard?

I'm confused by the information in your Public Profile - are you giving tips on lawncare, or seeking them?

I knew there was a reason we didn't get a dog - it's bad enough being woken by hedgehogs snuffling around on the terrace

I buy plants online, but only from specialist nurseries that have a good reputation - we have a Good Guy thread on here with recommendations - I wouldn't spend more than a fiver on plants via Ebay!

Leaf curl, discolouration, on cabbages, purple sprouting...

Yes, more likely to be aphids than a soil deficiency - especially on an allotment which presumably has been relatively well maintained. 

I'd just go over them slowly and carefully with my fingers unfurling and removing what bugs you find there.

Good morning all

Early to bed and early to rise makes a man (or woman) healthy, weatlthy and wise - well, two out of three ain't bad

,,,  can you both take an educated guess, they were small but larger than small if that makes sense etc

Not really - that would be like putting 'black beetle' into Google  - are you sure it's a beetle?  Could it be a weevil? 

You suggest aphids, but they're not beetles and they're not large. 

We need a photo and some sort of measurement.

What are they eating - the new growing tips and flowers, or the larger lower leaves?

And don't go spraying them with insecticide!
