Aphids in my Anchusa’s :(

This morning whilst inspecting the plants to sell, I was having a good check on all the other pots I have growing in the tunnel and came across this:

ANCHUSA Aphids 020416

Little bleeders have taken up residence in practically all of my ANCHUSA ‘Blue Angels’ in all, about 50 pots 😦

ANCHUSA Aphids 0204162

Now, I am not a fan of pesticides, but when the need arises I like to try and use organic when I can so today’s weapon of choice has been this:

Organic Pesticide 020416

Fingers crossed it works although due to the sheer number of residents, I am sure I will have to do a second application – oh well, just something else to add to the to do list!!
