Who do I stop aphids destroying my roses. I've tried shop sprays, soapy water etc but to no avail. Can you help?



Do you like oranges? Throw the orange peels down around your roses. The citrus oil is a natural repellent. It won't harm anything.

Banana peels work too. Dice them up & sprinkle them around the base of your plants. You'll also be fertilizing them.

there is a large number about this year. I tend to gently squish them as I walk past.
