Could you look at the picture and help me out?  I know I have whitefly but what is the white covering which looks a bit like paint?  Thanks.

    I dont think it is a disease- just a bad insect infestation possibly mealy bug-just wipe it off

    Thanks Geoff.  Not sure about the mealy bug but it wipes off easy enough.  Maybe I shall try that first in future rather than asking a dumb question.  Cheers.

    To me this looks like a case of mildew, caused by damp weather.
