    ..... on the underside of the leaves of my redcurrant bush, and on fruit trees. Which is best - spraying with a soap solution, water mixed with alcohol, water in which garlic has been steeped, or any other ecologically acceptable method. Recipe please. Thank you very much Bob PS I forgot; another problem, this time with weeds: have stopped using Roundup and am trying pure (cheap) vinegar. Any experiences?
