Have sprayed them with mixture of washing up liquid, the thought of touching them ............. makes me feel like I am crawling just at the thought of it.

Thanks so much, I was really worried that I might off got a serious problem, and spread it from the front garden into the back one too.

Thanks also for naming the tree

I have a tree in the front garden, which is cover with something.  I had thought they might be eggs as when I cut off the branches they did not fall off.  Unfortunately this morning the bin is now alive with them.

Any ideas as to what they could be?

How to get rid of them?

Also does anyone recognize the tree?

Thanks in anticipation

Thanks Busy Bee2

I was expecting that they would be like daffs.  Want to try and get away from planting annuals every year.  Would like the garden to be full of plants in flower all year round if poss.

Starting off with aconites, snowdrops, crocus, daffs, tulips, forsythia, grape hyacinth, forget me nots, then followed by a lot various other shrubs and plants that appear each year (which I am still trying to name),

I am taking photos every couple of weeks as I notice something different appear - then can hopefully find out their names and what exactly they do and when, and if I need to do anything to encourage their growth.

Been here over 10years and planned to do it every year but fully intend to do it this year - otherwise I will be downsizing to an OAP bungalow before I get it done lol.

thanks Verdun - disappointed to hear that the tulips wont flower again next year.  will try splitting the geraniums and chrysanthemums as you suggested.


Mrs Monkey re the primroses, should I wait until they have finished flowering?  Do you think they would be ok moved into small pots and then moved back to the large one in the autumn.  I have them in half whiskey barrels at the moment which is where I had my geraniums last summer.
