    Transplanting Sprouts

    As Nigel says a late autumn/winter crop. To me it's a bit early, no rush as they say.I used to sprinkle a ring of lime about 6 inches from the stems, it keeps slugs away as well.

    Green aphids on raspberry plant?

    The bug spray would probably kill the ladybirds as well so you will have to stop applying that if you want nature to sort your aphid problem.
