I have just discovered white fly on my tomato plant which up until now has been thriving. I keep it in a wee conservatory at the back of my kitchen. Its a tumbling type. Any advice would be welcome! Ta. x



spray with a solution of environmentally friendly washing up liquid and water (not Fairy!) or buy a proprietary insecticide you can use on vegetable plants.

Then keep looking every day and squash any you see. Be careful not to damage the leaves.
I was hopping mad to discover some on a tomato plant my Mum gave me. MY MUM. I have not had whitefly for a couple of years and am determined it won't get a hold.

You can also use a garlic spray as a systemic.
