Welcome to the Workshop community. We trust you'll get loads of helpful advice and inspiration for all your projects and plans for around the house and garden from our amazing members.
Looks like woolly aphid or mealy bug to me. Either way an application of pyrethrum insecticide or a horticultural oil like white oil or Eco oil applied according to label directions and with particular attention to the back of the leaves should fix the problem. Check every 7-10 days for further incursions and reapply if required.
Many thanks for your advice. I appreciate it and will try as you suggest
Agree qith previous comnent. Focus on back of foliage as well.
