Oh no, just seen some aphids on the lupins, I didn't think they would be around this soon!! Going to stick to permaculture methods - and try to control them by squashing the little lovies, yuk!! I'm not sure this is going to work as they seem to have a real hold already. Down on the allotment tomorrow and will make sure I start getting the companion planting underway - marigolds everywhere, nasturtiums in amongst the broad beans to keep the blackfly away. already have planted garlic around some of the roses, apparently aphids hate the smell of it, planting wild garlic around the rest and we'll see what works best...
