Woad and aphids


Woad flowers. What you don’t see in this picture are the aphids.


Up to now it seemed that nothing wanted to lunch on my dye plants, not even snails – and the latter are capable of tearing up a cactus.

At least until a couple of days ago. Went out to water the garden and found a herd of aphids parked on the Woad plant just below the flowering stems.

The plant seems ok, continues flowering and I’ve started spraying with my home brew ‘insecticidal soap’  (dish soap and water).
