Spotted first bumblebee in my garden on Tuesday 10th March. Never seen one this early before and I'm in N. Ireland and it's still fairly chilly here even though we're getting some nice sunny days. Anyone else spotted bumblebees.

make a soapy solution with a hand wash,spray the aphids soaking them completely.Prune back wherever possible to reduce their numbers.Do this twice a week until their numbers are reduced,then once a week.Over fertilizing may have created this try a slow release organic feed.GOOD LUCK
