feverfew and blackfly
feverfew flowering today. unfortunately some of it has been targeted by ants and blackfly. as I try to garden almost organically with minimal pesticides, I have been out spraying with a soap (ecover washing up liquid) and garlic spray - a squirt of one and 2 cloves of the other in a pint spray. it seems to work but I wonder if its only the pressure of the water spray.
