ARWadoo, Wow that's great news, another pest to add to the list that nasturtiums can repel! I would never have thought of planting them around my apple trees!

I'll look for an Indian chutney recipe, unless you have one to share.

Thank you VERY much for reading the article and posting such helpful tips!
I wish you much success with your gardening,
