Can't identify that mould? Got a great tip for keeping slugs at bay? Suggestions for organic weed control? Post them here...

Tomatillos and mosaic virus

It looks awfully like that to me, what do you think ? :

Don't know how it arrived, but a nearby courgette sowed the same symptoms. I presume the fruit is OK, it looks to be.

Looks like it.

Are you a smoker? Seems it can be spread by touching the leaves, if you're a smoker, from what is stated on various internet sites.

Does mosaic virus turn foliage yellow?
I have a jumbo parsley plant in a patio pot where some of the stalks have gone completely blond like that. I was wondering what on earth could have caused it.

I'm not a smoker. I have heard it can be seed bourne, or spread by aphids. One of my neighbours also has mosaic virus on her courgettes. She's a non smoker too, I wonder if the weather favours the virus ?
