What are these insects please?

Posted: 14/06/2017 at 09:22

I take the centre of the top of the brussels sprout plant and use it like spring greens or cabbage, before picking the sprouts as I need them through the winter.    

Taking the top out removes the growing tip and prevents the plants from running to flower and seed.

When all you have left is the bare stalk that's it ... all over.

Give it lots and lots of water. Keep the roots cool and moist (not soggy). Try to shade the container

I'm not sure from the pic but it might be a Schefflera.

I also think it sounds like a scale insect infestation. Check Guybrush's link for advice on how to treat the problem.

Good morning all 

Terrible fire ... Hope everyone got out, but the news report doesn't sound great 

About half an hour I watched a muntjac doe walk down the rise and across towards the SSSI woodland across the way.  I've heard them in the area, but not seen them this close to the house before.
