I have been to Aldi today and bought 2 trays of Lobelia. I have potted them on should I keep them in the house or could I put them into my unheated greenhouse.

I'm not sure if they are actually flies - they are more like tiny white dots that virtually cover the stems and the leaves are crisp and then drop. Sorry it isn't the best of descriptions.

I have a number of Euonymus which are being attacked by white fly on the stems and the leaves are dropping. One is so bad I will have to dig it up. Has anyone else had this problem and if so what can I do?

What is the best mint for cooking with new potatoes?

I always have trouble changing the height of the cutting blade - the lever is stiff and then all of a sudden it moves - not always to the right position.
