For me our garden is a little oasis of calm and happiness. I just love being in it, pottering about.

Can anyone tell me what the white blobs are on this Acer and if there is a nature sensitive way of treating it? #pests

Hi David @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co I've done some research and had a closer look at this photo. Unfortunately it looks like Scale Insect which is a parasitic (to plants) insect. It can be treated with a chemical or organic spray which is good news.

I just lost my green Acer plant to the same thing. It's like all white powdery stuff at the bottom of the plant.

Oh no that's terrible Jojo @jostarbuck Mines ok at the moment but I need to do something or lose it too. Did a bit of research online and found Neem oil might work plus its organic so won't harm bees, butterflies etc.

Today I'm dreaming in Orange. It's looking like we're in for a glorious sunny day here in Wiltshire. Hope the weather with you is just as fabulous! #orangedream #acer

Certainly is Tash! A welcome change after all the rain we've been getting. Hopefully it's just the beginning of what becomes glorious summer! @tash74

This little beauty is orange in spring as the leaves appear and then turns to bright green in summer.
