Dear all gardeners,

I have been in the garden for the past 2 days after those lovely morning rain to clear up some weeds and re-dig the soil for bulb planting. After an hour back home start to have bumpsss that itch appeared on my neck and back ( which is a row on my lower back itch and 'fierce', as my husband described it), althought i have my sweater and t-shirt as well as jeans and boots. When I went down to finish the task at the same spot again I spot some black little flies hanging around at the soil area I dig out which is a really good moist wormfull soil ready for new planting.

Had that before on shoulder which i didnt suspect it's by garden bugs as it feels like allergic reaction that happened when I was very young with some medicine. My husband suspect it's mosquitoes with red dot on each bump and once start scratching no way I can stop it. I have to take a allergic pills for hayfever and dose off in 1/2hour wake up feeling better.

Please advise if any one know what is this bug probably is so I can avoid them next time when I down to the garden again? And if there's any cream that i can put on to get them away from me?

Thank you very much

p/s: might provide some clear photos if anyone needed for clarification as I'm not sure what I look on google were excatly the same as what I have.

Dear gardeners,

please advise on how to tidy up sweet wiliams plot?

I have a glorious flowering for the 1st year sweet wiliams this summer, and now they have been dead head and self seeded(empty pot when i shake all the dead flowers). Should I cut down til the end of the stem? Or leave the stems and clean all the leaves?

Thank you very much
