These are a real sweetie. Last summer (my first of real gardening) I had most of my plants
in pots still waiting for the new garden to be prepared. Horror of horrors I found a few of them covered in very fine webs with lots of little .... well red spider mites running round them sucking out my precious plants
' natural precious planty type fluids. Although I had no idea how to deal with them (and nor did my local nursery) I got a commercial bug killer and sprayed them in the open air. Now my greenhouse
is not going up until this summer so I had to bring some of my tender young babies into the house to over-winter. They are due to go back out in about 6-8 weeks BUT this morning, on my aloe vera, fine webs and tiny red spiders. And that is even though they have been in the house since early November. I assume that the larvae have been in the compost since then and are just breaking free. Anyone got any method of dealing with these tiny terrors? I lost 4 plants
to them last year.
