Soap solution for greenfly

Posted: 19/05/2014 at 21:15

Just out of curiosity as I have been using washing up liquid with good success am I doing any harm in using it?

Alternatively if you want to use a spray just but a little dollop in a litre. About the same strength as you would wash your dishes with. You can see if its working as they will all be dead in a few hours.

just put a dollop in the cup. I then make as many bubbles as I can in the glass and place the bubbles on the leaves.

Rust on mallow

I have another look and every leaf is affected. There are a few seedlings germinated at the base so I may cut it down and allow the seedling to take over.

I have a malva sylvestres which has quite a bit of rust. I have pruned out all of the affected growth which was quite a lot. I have sprayed with a fungus control spray. Is there anything I can spray on weekly to keep it in check like sodium bicarb and washing up liquid with rose blackspot.

What's wrong with my clematis? And what can I do?

I got to admit it was devastating to cut mine down to the ground when I had exactly the same problem as you buts its growing back quite quick with strong healthy stems this year and nearly back to its original size. I believe mine was either caused by wilt or lack of watering during last years hot summer.
