There are a lot of greenfly all over the place, which I have been having a go at with a spray of mild soap; but one rose bush and one only is COMPLETELY covered. The greenfly seem particularly fat, don't mind a bit of a wash, and I discovered today don't have a reaction to standard garden aphid killer. I read somewhere once about boiling cigarette ends and trying a nicotine based pesticide (I don't know how dilute this would have to be not to kill the plant) or if there are any particular greenfly slaughtering products which are especially effective. I generally try to be 'natural' about gardening, but at this moment I would try agent orange if it was selective enough! Any ideas, anybody?
Greenfly by the million
