    Hi everyone I had 6 healthy specimens grown from seed and planted them out in the polytunnel The leaves went brown then they got this odd material like a very fine spiders web on them which seems to have white dots in it maybe some sort of aphid? Diagnostic tips appreciated- please see pic!

    Wow,never seen that before. How crushing. Can’t tell whether it’s compost or droppings in the area near the stem. I know of various moth species who spin webs but I can’t see anything has been nibbled. The other classic is red spider mite that makes webs, but as I haven’t got a polytunnel or greenhouse I’ve never seen it ‘in the flesh’. Hopefully someone else will know exactly what it is.
    Good luck

    Al it looks like severe rd spider mite.
    Your greenhouse must be full of it and aubergines are v susceptible too.
