Don't think the second one is a buddleia actually as the leaves would be longer and narrower

Thanks for your comments. Looks like the previous owner was a jasmine fan. Is it ok to prune the large one?

Thanks, yes it looks like it wants to climb doesn't it. I thought it was a self-seed from the plant against my wall (see photo), but I don't think they are the same are they? If not, an identification of that one as well would be appreciated.

Just wondering if anyone can identify this plant? There seem to be a few of them around the garden I've recently taken over.

Soaking (not spraying) with Bug Clear Ultra just about worked for me, but I think you have to be methodical about treating every plant that could have been infested. I'm also pretty sure they do not survive cold winter weather.

Where have all the ladybirds gone?

Used to get quite a lot, but in the last few years hardly any. There must be a problem somewhere.

Actually, I managed to get a photo of one and it looks more like a mealybug than an aphid to me.

So any ideas about the best way to deal with compost that has been affected?

The white deposit in root mealybug and root aphid both look similar to what I have, but having seen the little critters, I think you're right, they're root aphids not mealybugs. Thanks for that.
