I have an echinops ritro that has been affected by some kind of pest or fungus since I've had it. The leaves are stunted and shrivelled and often covered in a white downy webbing. Also, it did not die back all the way this year and is currently putting out a flower (stunted and damaged). Any advice?

Hi Ella - do you have a photo? If yes reply to me or you and add up to 3 images. It might help identify the problem. Cheers Nicola

Hi Nicola,
I spoke to an experienced gardener today who assured me that it was most likely aphids attacking the plant. I concur. He says he never grows echinops for this reason. Thanks for your help anyway! I'm thinking I might let this one go.
Best,
Ella
