    I understand that lime sulphur is no longer available to treat against gall mite (big bud). Any suggestions on how to deal with this problem - other than pinching off infected buds ?

    John Welcome to the bulletin board. As to your question - how about pinching off infected buds!?!?! There's nothing else recommended. For full details see www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profiles0107/bigbud.asp

    There are never any problems in gardening - just opportunities!
