woolly aphid on crab apple tree

Thanks for the advice. I have 2 blue tits that sometime eat them, but I think I need a whole flock. I will try the soap and see how it goes.

I empty the tea leaves from the bags before I put them in the compost bin. Otherwise you end up with the bags in the finished compost. Not very attractive and not so good for wild life.

Have had my crab apple tree for about 10 years. Woolly aphid appeared 2 summer's ago. they are disfigering the branches and seem to over winter on the tree. Is that possible? They make a mess of the plants underneath. I don't use pesticides, has anyone got any suggestions of how to deal with them. I hose them off regularly but the always come back. Thank you.

I've gardening for years, but never had much success with seeds. Have pinched my sweet peas, now waiting for the warmth of the sun to arrive.

My question was do I need to pinch out growing tips on my morning glory seedlings? Hope you can see my post this time!
