Getting rid of aphids...
« on: June 12, 2009, 13:47 »
My pepper / chilli plants and herb plants are beginning to get covered in tiny aphids. They are positioned in the utility room where it is nice and warm.

Anyone know a safe way to get rid of them? I dont want to use a chemical solution as I am eating the fruit/leaves.

I cant put these ones outside either, they are in ceramic pots with no drainage.

Any ideas?
We lived for days on nothing but food and water.

Spray them with water with a very little washing up liquid in....seems to do the trick  :)
