Another winter casualty?
Greenfly- I use cayenne pepper mixed into soapy water and just sprinkle over the affected area with a watering can. Worked really well on badly infested young aubegines.
I like the cayenne pepper idea. With repeated sprays of soapy water we seem to have kept them off recently, but the honeysuckle has taken such a hammering it looks terrible. Gutting when all the other honeysuckle I pass locally is in rude health.
They never seem to go for anyone else's plants, do they!
ha. there are a lot of flats round here with communal gardens that will be managed by professionals. I tell you what... they look damn good. Whoever's doing it is a class act.
I tell myself they use loads of chemicals though, and that's how everything looks so beautiful.
