How to get rid of black fly

Posted: 16/07/2017 at 15:09

Good tips   ... but I think the flies you're talking about are 'flies' which fly around our homes ......... the blackflies which are the subject of this thread are a type of aphid on plants.

Some varieties  turn reddish as they ripen, some turn a lovely golden colour - do you know which variety you are growing?

Last time I saw her was at their Diamond Wedding celebrations (I'd been their littlest bridesmaid)... she and uncle said they'd had a wonderful life and done everything they'd ever wanted to do ......... not bad, eh? 


Nearly Snap!  We had smoked salmon pate for lunch

I see. Why someone would go the bother of creating a fake account on a gardening forum is beyond me. Some people are very strange.

Wolf3 is a Wind Up Merchant making posts that he thinks are funny ... take no notice of him Overgrowth - he's trying to cause trouble ... it's not clever and it's not funny, just tedious  ... the Mods will deal with him when they're in the office.  In the meantime most people are ignoring him

If you want them for jam they're better slightly under-ripe.

Wine sounds good. I love wine but it doesn't love me - I become very flushed after just half a glass which is a bit embarrassing. I struggle through though! 



 My Aunty Rach met that struggle head on for years.. and my uncle helped her ... they were determined to get the hang of it ... they moved to the South of France in an effort to increase their opportunities ... they moved back here eventually ... think the French locals were worried that there'd be none left for them

It looks to me like Galtonia candicans ... a lovely thing in a summer border.  I had some in a previous garden ... must get some more ........
