i have just joined this site,i am wild about any thing to do with gardening,nature and wildlife,my garden is planted with any thing to attract,bees,butterflies,and birds,yrs ago if i found greenfly i would be annoyed,but now when i see them i think oooh lovely food for the birds and ladybirds etc but as a read on here there is a lot less aphids than there used to be,personally i think it is too much interference with nature,even the GM groing could be having a knockon affect.last yr i had a lot of lady birds on my californian lilac this yr none,i have only seen one 2 spot lady bird so far this yr, but butterflies were back a week ago so i put my butterfly feeder out and have not seen any since,last yr i hardly saw an butterflies,my buddlia is usually full of them but not las yr.
