Lavande, try tieing a teacloth underneath the fork on the plant and place a newspaper or card between the plant and wall and gently spray close to the plant let the spray run down onto the aphids,the teacloth can catch the water ,Weak washing up liquid has saved many a plant for me. i dont know how to erradicate them for good,, good luck

Veranda versus conservatories

Posted: 03/05/2014 at 16:40

Hi speaking from experience ,the house weve just bought had a long veranda and was turned into part of the house with double glazing all round three sides,cold in winter hot in summer nice first thing in the morning, BUT we now are extending and a Must is do not have paneled,bottoms when you glaze as this is where the heat is lost,so we are using brick bottoms and double glaze gas filled windows, Argon gas windows  works out as good as tripple glaze and about half the price..,,just thought id try to save some money for anyone thinking of double glazing stuff.  Sunny ere in Norfolk  avagooden
