    Was wondering if garlic would be harmful to CPs. I've been reading that it is a good natural repellent against aphids, keeping them away from your plants. So does anyone know if Garlic would harm your CP? Thanks.

    I don't think it's harmful. I think I have heard of people even using it for aphids.

    Yeah, is suggested a recipe I saw online for aphid repellent to a gal in Canada. Don't know of it took care of aphids, but she has no problems with mythological creatures and her social life has gone down hill. That might just be coincidence, but I'm not going to test it out!

    Drowning by overfilling is perhaps the safest approach.

    on a more serious note, for a preventative measure, empty caffein pills and put them in the water with the plant while drowning the aphids, or spray the plants with water with caffein in it (no not coffee). caffein is a natural pesticide.

    I have read growing garlic, chives or nasturtiums can repel aphids. Place some pots near your plants and let us know how it works.
