Limnanthes Poached Eggs

The best thing about poached egg plants is they flower for such a long season and they attract hoverflies and ladybirds which love to feed on blackfly and aphids. 

So successful in quelling these invasive little insects which are ‘farmed’ and ‘milked’ by ants, that over the last few years since discovering them that I have not had to wash off the aphids with soapy water, which always seemed to have a detrimental effect on the runner beans.

Since using the Poached Egg Plants I've had wonderful crops each year. 

I've sown a few modules and will also direct sow in the runner bean beds.
