Hi again. I'm having a terrible season. I dont have much time in my garden - pretty much Sunday only - and every week I notice that more and more plants are showing similar disease. It resembles aphid damage with buckled and curled leaves but there is no sign of any insect activity. Its on roses, mock orange blossom, fuschias, dahlias, plum trees and others that I cant recall at the moment. I appreciate any advice anyone can give me. Thanks

Hi eggplant1,
Usually the symptoms you are describing are attributed to an irregular water supply. This might sound strange given the weather we have been having lately, but it is possible depending on where the plants are located. However check again for insect activity, especially around the tips of shoots where you may find an insect called capsid, green/brown about 1/4 inch long, sucking away on the sap of the fresh new growth injecting its toxic saliva into the plant causing damage like you have described. Many generic treatments are available to deal with this pest...let me know how you get on...good luck.
