I have been using Yates Success on my vege patch. Seems to be pretty good but is costly. I buy it in 200ml bottle but it does not go far. Anybody know where I can get it in bulk for better price OR recommend something effective but also organic? Please....

Daniel Have you tried the Produce Stores..

The only organic one I know is Dipel and thats so expensive. http://www.yates.com.au/whats-new/natures-way-caterpillar-killer-dipel/
Five sachets in a box for about $15

We take the pests off by hand as we have the time..
I know you are short on time so cant..

Hi Gwen, that one plant still survives - I was looking at it on the weekend and wondering if I am game to plant it out. I probably will, perhaps this weekend.

I see the white moths in my garden and I just KNOW bugs will be around...I have found "Yates success" to be a good product but quite expensive. Hopefully it is available in a bigger qty.

Dan do tell me if that Hibiscus does not survive and after next pruning I'll replace it.
