Last week I had aphids on my sweet pea plants. They are still growing up and haven't yet flowered but they are about 3-4 ft. high. Upon the advice of a friend I sprayed the plants with an insecticidal soap mixture (just water and very little soap). This helped get rid of the aphids but I'm afraid I may have sprayed too much and now the plants look sick. Some brown leaves and they aren't as sturdy as they were before (growing up the twine structure I have for them).
Is there anything I can do to bring them back? Or should I just take this as a lesson in aphid defence? Any help is very appreciated!!
did you rinse off the garden 1/2 hour after the spray? are you using a biodegradable soap such as ivory ?
