Any ideas please?

Hi,

I have an established hydrangea and have noticed it has what I can describe as white liquid blobs over it? Any ideas why and what I need to do please?

Thank you!

    Could it be cuckoo spit? http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/profile.aspx?pid=490 

    If so you need do nothing - they little froghoppers will not harm an established shrub. image

    Seem to have loads of cuckoo spit in my garden this year!

    If you push aside the bubbles he's blown around himself you will see him ...a tiny little froggy fellow with bulgy eyes.  I kinda like him.  I don't think he does much harm and he' only trying too live his life, something like the rest of us

    Sorry dove, if I see a few on a bush I squash them.  They do debilitate somewhat

    Entirely up to you Verdun image  but I don't think a few would harm a mature shrub.
