Problem with insects, help?

Cambridge, United Kingdom Gb

We have a small planter garden in our bunglow. Whilst the all the flowers do well, we have a big prblem with green, white and black flies. Also caterpillars and slugs are a problem. Can anyone suggest an all round cure



You can spray with a soapy water mix to remove the wee flies. As for the caterpillars and slugs the easiest thing is to pick them off by hand and drop them in the wheely bin or feed to the hens if you have any.
