if there in the greenhouse why not try hanging yellow sticky traps up and giveing the plants a shake that way they get attracted to the yellow and once they stick they cant get off.. if not just try a simple greenfly bug killer but i use the yellow traps and it works a treat in my greenhoise  someone told me aswell when you water the roses etc... if using a hosepipe u can wash the greenfly off ants also cause greenfly problems as they harvest them for their juices they get out of the plant to feed their young so try controlling the ants aswell   that might be of some help

try round up i use it all the time as its part of my job and feel it does a great job they now do a roll on tube has a strong type weedkiller inside well worth a shot.. or get a cereal box cut the top and bottom out and place the box over the plant u wish to kill and spray it that way reduces chances of hurting anything near by and reduces drift hope this helps

this is ny third year now growing chilli peppers and i have always had trouble growing scotch bonnets they always seem to get yellowing leaves they are fed and watered but not watered too much and i use chilli focus as their feed but still this year im getting the same problem can anyone suggest what this could be as its frustrating puttin so much care into the seedlings only to see them grow and nott produce .. any help would be helpful as all my peppers do so well and leave me with a lovely crop.. they are still in the coldframe but have put them outside now the weathers warmer but still cant see any improvement also what size do they grow as mine are only around 5 or 6 inches high max thank you again
