In my gar­den

Amateur Gardening - - Pick Of The Very Best -

A few years ago, I no­ticed that the leaves on my pieris were de­vel­op­ing yel­low­ish speck­les. The fo­liage is usu­ally such a rich, dark green that this re­ally spoilt the look of the plants. It turned out to be caused by pieris lace­bug, a new pest that ar­rived from Ja­pan about 20 years ago.

For­tu­nately, lace­bug is easy to deal with us­ing an or­ganic spray such as De­fend­ers Bug Killer Spray.
