pests attacking winter cauliflowers
« on: November 04, 2018, 17:29 »
Help please.  After a saunter in the allotment I noticed one or two winter cauliflower plants looked a bit sickly. On closer observation I noticed some purplish looking insects. Any idea what these are and possible remedies please?

They're horrible - Mealy aphids, they tend to take on the colour of whichever brassica they are feeding on.

Had them all over my broccoli, wondered what they were.
Threw away what I had picked  ;)
