Soapy spray is fine for a small infestation-but I feel you are going to have to call on the big boys-I would invest in a proprietary spray suitable for edible crops and keep repeating- white-fly and all aphids breed at an alarming rate

If you are unsure about cuttings etc-they root fairly easily just in water on a windowsill pot up at the first sign of roots and yes-protect from frost-until then fine in a greenhouse

Growing blueberries

Ideally you should do a soil test on you garden soil to get a reading- if it is acid then the blueberries will be fine if not then over time the compost will decompose into the soil and whatever soil you have- that will be what the blueberries sit in

I have them in large containers and they thrive-why do you want to plant them out ?

The fuchsia-it depends on whether it is a hardy variety or not-if this is its first year-I would take cuttings now as insurance just in case if it doesn't re-appear.

As I am the fountain of all useless knowledge- a course of Vitamin E tablets is suppose to ward off insect bites- something to do with the blood taste?
