Creeping up on me... the grey mould on my honeysuckle. Caterpillars on my strawberries. Greenfly on everything.

The plants started to grow and vine and climb and then.... mould and fur and grey. I have been unleashing a caterpillar carnage every morning on my strawberries and have abandoned organic gardening to attempt to control the sport cycle of the grey mould.

The greenfly however... they can't be treated until the chillies, peppers and strawbs have finished flowering. Flicking them off one by one while muttering 'littlegreenbastards' under my breath is proving both time consuming and detrimental to mental health.


  1. Spray! I have a spray attachment on my hose and spray the buggers off. I have blackfly that try to devour my honeysuckle every year.

  2. I bought a good product last year that is safe to use on edible plants, it is this: and just uses fatty acids. It really did the trick!
