Hiya! I would like to ask if you can identify this white powdery disease on my thorn hedge? It is'nt on the leaves but below on the stems and has been there quite a while and spreading.Also could you please advise me on how to clear it up? Thankyou.

Hi Harry01, Welcome!

I can't see the photo clearly to really tell what it is but I'm thinking possibly mealybugs or maybe powdery mildew. If it's white cottony blobs, it's more than likely a mealybug infestation.

Hopefully others with better eyesight will be able to more clearly see your photos and be able to offer advice.
