    Stop Greenfly with washing liquid - how much? 19th May 08 at 8:17 PM
    Hi

    I have heard that I can get rid of the greenfly on my strawberry plants with a mixture of water and washing up liquid. What concentration would I use? If I filled up a spray bottle with water, how many drops of washing up liquid would I put in? Also does it flavour the fruit?

    I plan to wipe off the greenfly with cotton wool and water first, then spray as a deterent. Does that sound okay?

    I am sure you can already tell that I am a novice - this is my first year of growing anything at all

    Many thanks
