Home made organic way to kill aphids

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 07:51

If you use Ecover washing up liquid then it's organic.  I have used it as Fairygirl uses Fairy  and it works, but it does kill good insects too, like ladybird larvae etc.  So I rub them off with my fingers, brush them off with a brush or squirt them off with a hose.

That leaves a few behind for the bluetits who need them for their nestlings.

Wonky and I may be making a detour today which will lead us here

If you could choose just one plant for your garden from here, which would it be and why?

And for those of you who've got a fair idea of Wonky's garden and mine, what do you think we'll treat ourselves to?

There might be a prize for a correct guess!

Good morning Chicky  and the rest of you as you appear

It's a beautiful morning out there - lots of birds on the feeders - and I've just watched a large heron land in the neighbour's garden opposite, then sit on the leylandii hedge to swallow whatever he'd found, and take off and fly over our garden and back towards the marshes. 

I've a feeling they've a pond short of a goldfish - but it was a magnificent sight - I do love herons

I'm meeting up with Wonky today and visiting Ma.  On the way back we may take a short detour to a wonderful nursery just down the road ... I wonder what will tempt us ... I may start a thread ... think we could do with something to think about other than lives cut short and politics

Maxixrop for rejuvenating a hedge?

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 06:42

Hi Robin

I'm sure Maxicrop has given it a boost, along with the fresh air and sunlight coupled with the fact that spring has really sprung now and hedges all over the place have new buds bursting

I would also feed the hedge with Fish, Blood and Bone which is a slow release fertiliser so will continue to feed the hedge all summer - but give yourself a break, do it in a few weeks' time. 

I would scatter it alongside the hedge and top off with a mulch of some well-rotted manure or leafmould or similar. 

No need to fork in - the rain will do the job for you - we're bound to get plenty of that

 

 

Is this a senior moment or am I correct?
