Another quiet day in the office so am quietly plotting away. This could go so badly wrong!!

 

Ooooh bu$$er!!!    A dear friend swore by hot Vimto if she was under the weather - it would make a change I suppose 

 

Re cake - I think Hortum -c may have looked at the first page of this thread - hope he/she hasn't ploughed through the thread from the beginning to here

 I grow a few chillies but I'm not a pepper expert - but that does look very like aphid damage to me.

I'd spray with a soapy solution - I use Ecover but you can get soap-based organic sprays at the garden centres - pay particular attention to the undersides of the leaves and the growing tips.

Good luck
