Moving out (again)

We couldn't stand all the aphids, so I moved them out to the balcony again. And now I will keep them there. No way I'm taking these aphid-loaded plants inside again.

That's sad. I was really hoping for saving a couple of plants for the winter. But I don't see how I will be able to get rid of all the aphids. It's better to start from scratch next year (again).

Well, it was a beautiful day anyway, and I'm not complaining. Here I am enjoying a beer in the sunshine :-)

Have a nice weekend!


  1. in a few weeks can't you cut all the leaves off, cut down the trunk like a few cm bare root it , soak it in a bucket with soapy water and repot in sterilized medium? make a bonchi.

  2. Hi Stefano! Yes, maybe. Now I have thrown the worst plants away and that is good. So we will see what I do with these "partial survivors". It's been a mess with the aphids all season, so they are weak... And I think - so am I :-)
