Black Aphids 1 | Gardener 1?

In a post about my containers, I showed you my attacked nasturtiums.  The black aphids really did a number on them.  Well, I put some more seeds in the container and they are sprouting; but I also have new leaves forming on the attacked nasturtiums.  Yea!!  Once I realized what was going on, I was on the watch.  I check this container when I hunt for squash bugs.  The duct tape trick works well on black aphids too.  I had envisioned an overflowing container with lovely naturtium blooms by now.  At this point, I'll be lucky if I have flowers by August.


  1. glad you found the culprit..

  2. It's been years since I grew nasturtiums, but they are so bright and colorful. I hope you have very good success this time.

  3. Well! Won't August be colorful now????

    They were stealthy!

    Me too!

    That's what I'm thinking!
