i have Roseclear... and i want to keep my pumpkins and tomatoes pest-free...i had some green aphids on the pumpkins, and have squished them between my fingers so far, was just curious if they could be sprayed.

I love the environment,and would not harm it if can be helped. i bought Roseclear as it was recommended to me by other gardening friends...

thank you for all your replies, they have been helpfull

how about some Dicentras? the Bleeding Hearts are well suited in shady areas lovely as they don't grow too big

my advice for the slopes would be to buy some native primroses...they are cheap from seed, you can find many on ebay...also ferns are good on slopes.

not sure why photos arn't uploading atm,...

Hello fellow gardeners,

My young daughter bought a lovely dahlia last year, it has shot up over the last few months- however i recently discovered that the growing tip has been devoured by aphids or greenfly... i removed them and then sprayed it with Roseclear...

could anyone tell me if it will still come and flower later?? or has it had it for this year??

Also, my allium bulbs have been in bud for a few weeks now-do they usually take some weeks to come into flower? or could something be wrong?

Working in a garden centre has it's perks, i've been tidying and sorting out a range of flowers, veg, herbs and shrubs today in work,

and later will be sowing some more nasturtiums at home as the first batch are suffering in the wind!
