Aphids particularly bad this year?

Posted: 07/05/2014 at 21:02

They are very persistent and keep coming back i'm already onto my 3rd spraying of my plants at the minute but the spray is definitely killing them but more seem to return. Think I might have to mix a big vat David's industrial strength recipe to see them off finally

Check for vine weevil in the pot. They may have eaten the roots

Any ideas of shrubs or climbing vines that I can either train up a fence or plant a against a fence that I can either keep trimming to keep thin or will grow against a fence. I'm reluctant to plant ivy as it can damage the fence and become invasive.

My garden is really infested with them they have killed a few nasturtium seedlings that germinated, my cestrum tomentosum is covered top to bottom in them and they are all over my Californian poppy seedlings. Sprayed them all with soapy water that seems to have done the trick but am going to keep a good eye on them. Something's eating my clematis leaves and stems on the young ones and cant figure out what it is also.
