      I refuse to use chemicals in my garden so it is usually a crapshoot as to what will survive. :-) This sounded like a lovely remedy. Aphids found their way to my herb garden, specifically the dill plants. I couldn't really blast the wispy plants with water before dousing on the _antidote_ so I was unsure of the outcome. I checked this morning and *no* aphids to be seen on anything. Thanks so much for this miracle-cure!
