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.
