A quick one for Kirsty, orangeness and bug issues

I told you all it was orange

But if the spider mite problem is not rectified soon I am afraid the Dahlia (all three pots scattered around the balcony garden) will be destined for decomposition


Solutions that don't involve heavy miticides or individually meeting and greeting each mite then crushing it between my digits???

I haven't had a problem with spider mites yet. I did find this Australian site with organic mite control ideas: http://www.greenharvest.com.au/pestcontrol/spider_mite_info.html.

Spider mites are little devils aren't they. So I'm looking at your blog and at its sunny balcony and thinking I must check your profile as all I can see out my window is snow! Nice to see something else for a change.
