Thank you so much Bob.
No I'm not keeping any plants, as u mainly only have hardy perennials and evergreens, bulbs, cyclamens and the odd annual. I religiously cleared up all dead leaves this autumn too, as much as I could and sprayed insecticide over all the dormant plants.
Good idea to stop SB before, I did wonder if the SB would make it harder for predators to move too!
Can I ask you, do you use any nematodes on your thrips? Was wondering about the effectiveness, since the temperature has to be fairly high before they can e used.
I hate thrips even more than vine weevil- they ruined my garden last year
