Q How do I treat the sac­ri­fi­cial nas­tur­tiums that are keep­ing black­fly away from my veg? HEATHER BROTHWELL, BY EMAIL

Garden Answers (UK) - - Problems Solved -

A Nas­tur­tiums not only at­tract black­fly, but also cab­bage white cater­pil­lars, so they’re very use­ful de­coy plants. When cov­ered in the pests, pull up the plants and place them in an en­closed com­post bin. This will stop them at­tack­ing your crops.
