    It's on the net somewhere but from memory I think crushed about 4 cloves up and put them in some boiling water over night and then just filled a spray bottle with it, no idea whether it's actually doing anything though.

    These are ladybird larvae - they are actually helping you with your problem! The ladybird larvae are feeding on blackfly, a type of aphid, which will be devouring the leaves and sap from your plants. I had exactly the same problem with a cherry tree at my old house, and found it very difficult to control the blackfly. The problem lessened in years when ladybird larvae numbers were high. You can't use any pesticides to treat this as it will just kill the ladybird larvae.

    This was my First Gold about a month ago. All 3 Hop plants (this, Fuggles and Challenger) have all got small cones coming through I think. I am getting excited and making recipes up in advance!

    Has anyone else got ideas already?

    Been away for a couple of weeks and the Hop comes have come on loads, Fuggles is miles ahead. Looks like a massive crop of those! How is everyone else’s coming along?

    I was down in Wales last week and went to the National Gardens, they had about 5 varieties planted and all were in different stages, think it was the Phoenix that already had decent sized cones on. Mine at home (first year) are only now just starting to show flowers.
