Re: Chocolate and Beetroot Cake

Re: Where are all the ladybirds this year?

We too are having a nightmare with blackfly and the greenfly are particularly annoying - can't walk outside without getting covered in them! I haven't really noticed any ladybirds. Probably next year will be all ladybirds and no black/green fly!

Re: Gardening with small smalls - how do you do it??

We used a little popup travel cot quite successfully in the garden and on the beach. Was reallygood because it was so light and easy to carry but as soon as they can sit of propel themselves it was useless! Luckily ours was a borrow.
