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
