What’s up with my Viburnum?

Question from Sue Ewing

Hi. Hoping someone can help. For the past three years my viburnum bodnantense ‘dawn’ has increasingly suffered from a disease which causes the flower buds to rot. Last year I treated it with Provado Ultimate Bug Killer, thinking it had thrips, but without luck. This year I’m wondering whether to try Tumbleblight, in case it’s a form of mildew. Any ideas as to what the problem is and how I should treat it? Many thanks.

thrips or midges

Comment from eleni prokopiou

Hello, I bought a Harlow Carr a few months back and it was doing very well, it had grown and roses had bloomed. But then a couple of weeks ago, I noticed some of the buds hadn't opened, and the already opened ones were dying. The foliage is very green and healthy looking. I then noticed that my one year old Velvet Fragrance and Margaret Merril had the same symptoms. I have put two photos of the last two. Is it thrips, or midges, or neither, and what can I do other than deadhead them, to help them? Thank you very much
