I think it will take another year for the peonies, but thankyou Salino, will vermiculite or perlite do the same job?

Hi guys will this mixture work for aphids, greenfly, whitefly and the like? As my roses, fatsia Japonica, and various other plants get decimated by then, not including my hostas with snails. All the searches on the web bring up American websites detailing using parafin oil, mineral oil etc etc and they say it works for all of the above?

 Hi guys not in full bloom yet but im concerned as before as the soil is very dense with the sandy substrate and being under slabs for so long, i have added horse muck, but would it be a good idea to add perculite or vermiculite to help brake it up?
