I have sticky web like cocoons wrapped around the unopened buds and leaves of my cornflowers (Centaurea Montana). I peeled one open to see what was inside but couldn't really see anything. A few leaves are also sticky white and others yellowing. From looking lovely they now look dreadful. I did see a small brown moth on one of the leaves the other day, could it be that? How do I deal with it without using pesticides?
Any advice appreciated.
