Woottens are excellent Dove but compare prices with Paddocks. Quality isn't sacrificed either

Looking at your plant again bibloes I notice ALL the leaves are pale yellow.  I dont think its chlorosis but it is hungry and thirsty esp if you have had sunshine that most of us have had.  Epsom salts is a cheap, effective tonic

Bibloes, some varieties of pieris do this...viz red leaves turning pale yellow before turning green.  The leaves are at their most vulnerable at this stage.  I have pieris flaming silver that does this...doing it now.  It is in full sun.  It still looks a photo yesterday I think it may have been included.......and I love the appearance. However, it is better in dappled shade.  With extra water too if in the sun.

acid soil Bibloes?  Is it mpc?  better in john innes.  Mine gets a spray or two of epsom salts too

Shirley the best solition without side effects is hand picking.  At this time of year it's profitable to do this a couple of times a week.  you will find much less damage later in the season then.
