Lupins, aphids, ugh
My lupines are growing lovely each day. Yesterday though I noticed one plant with many flowers bent as if they were broken deliberately. I couldn't understand it because no other nearby plant was affected. Then I started noticing strange white specks on the leaves. On closer inspection I discovered thousands of aphids.. I mean really fat large aphids. Never seen it in this numbers before and maybe it's the weather. Out came my only 'green' pesticide bottle and I've been spraying away. Ugh.. They infested the entire plant and all the nearby lupins.
Has anyone else experienced strange infestations? I thought aphids will go to my roses but never expected they would gravitate to lupins.
