About 3 weeks ago got some full pretty dill starts at the garden center. (I don't do well starting dill from seed. Germinates, but don't get full pretty plants). Put 3 in a pot, 3 in ground. These are from a regional nursery, and most of their starts are pretty.
I picked some a week ago for market. Then Friday picking, and noticed the aphids, like some stems covered, and removed the worst stems. I had 3 small bunches at the market, and told customers there may be a few aphids, but at least no chemicals! (they like that). I did notice signs of slugs on the dill in the ground, but those come from my garden dirt (and sprinkled some sluggo around).
So finally back to them, removed the worst, again, did soap/water spray. I know the new ones will just keep coming out of the dirt. In a couple days after the scheduled rain, may do the pyrethrin, and keep alternating with soap/water. No lady bugs in sight.
I also had picked up some pretty French tarragon, same time, same supplier. Bingo, mealy bugs on one plant.
In the next few days when I am back at the garden center will let them know. I don't expect refunds or replacements, just letting them know there is a problem. I am sure others may be noticing also. This could be huge to the smallish nursery right in middle of the season. Also reminds me why I don't need a small hobby greenhouse!
