Answer: Hello Frank,

Those ‘spots’ you are seeing mostly along the stems of your basil plant are a type of scale insect. Unfortunately we don’t have an appropriate product for control of scale on this plant, however they should be fairly easy to scrape off manually.

Feed your plants with Yates Dynamic Lifter Organic Plant Food to maximise their natural resilience to pest and disease attack.

All the very best with it.

Kind regards,

Matt
