Bell pepper help needed

Posted: 19/03/2016 at 13:37

Put a squirt of washing up liquid in a bowl of lukewarm water. 

Hold the pot with your fingers spread across the top of the pot with the pepper stem between your fingers and turn the pot upside down (your fingers will keep the compost in the pot).

Swish the plant around in the water gently then stand  it aside to drain. 

That'll get rid of the aphids.  It also works for whitefly.

I'm feeling hugely guilty. 

All this dry weather has had me in the garden, but I've not sown a single seed yet. Dry weather forecast for the next week too.

Me neither - as we're away for a few days I'm not starting until we get back. 

Glad you got some sleep at least Hosta ((hugs)).

Glad you've got time to sit down for a few minutes Wonky

I've decided to make hot cross buns to take to MIL's so the dough is proving while I have a swift coffee and go to get some petrol ...

Growing up on the farm in High Suffolk the woods and hedgerows were full of it.  We were on heavy clay - definitely alkaline.
