My sister in law is from Mexico and so are my nephews... I will try it but I just said that the vinegar solution sounds potent for a wee little bit.

I like chillies but I tell ya: my dad has gone mad on them, fuckin hell- they've even got them in the freezer... do yours get the white flowers ?

We could all do something to help wildlife, plant to attract butterflies, provide some shallow muddy puddles for them to drink from. The flowers will also help bees. Then something to help lizards, burrows with a platform where they can safely sun themselves to warm their body. Then native birds could do with some help—nesting boxes, feeder stations. Talk about these, encourage others, join local groups planting native plants along river banks etc.

Silly silly man. Santos is being sued to the eyeballs because ROUND UP.. a Brand name, is everywhere in the food chain, and it is a poison.

I have a diverse mini-eco system here, and the birds and the bugs and the spiders and the wasps and the skinks and all the other critters get to eat their fill. No aphids. :bgrin

But due to climate here, I do get some scale, and some rust. I pull the leaves off, and let the plant deal.. if it dies.. so be it..
Lately I've been seeing butterflies, but nothing like in previous years, and instead of pairs dancing around each other, they seem solitary. It is a worry.
