    Default Brussel Sprouts

    Morning all,

    I am a new gardener and am growing a range of veggies which are all doing really well however a couple of weeks ago i noticed a couple of my brussel sprouts had leaf curl and yellow looking leaves. Upon inspection inside the leaf curl i found a mass of tiny grey mites. It looked at first like a grey chalk deposit but on closer inspection they were mites. I treated the affected plants with a general purpose bug remover and rubbed off the mites. As i say this was about 2 weeks ago and the plants still look decidedly unhappy with yellow leaves and still curled over. Does any body have any ideas as to what is/has occured.?
