I crouched down recently amidst our containers of herbs, eyeing a small spider that had spun a web between my lavender and my Italian parsley. While I was down there, I thought I’d take a look at the sweet basil plant. I hadn’t checked it for scale in a few days, and so far, this plant managed to escape the fate of the Genovese plant.
There was no evidence of scale, but there was an awful lot of white, grubby looking stuff down at the bottom.
This is a new one, folks. I have no idea what these are, if they are just something I should leave alone, or if I need to launch an assault on a new and improved garden nastiness. Any ideas?
