Swap aphids for lettuces!

Part of my fieldwork this season involves trying to catch live aphids on lettuce from various parts of the UK. I would provide you with ~30 lettuces to grow in your garden and I would ask if you see any aphids on the lettuce for them to be sent to me at Rothamsted Research. Costs for postage etc. would be paid for and you will also get a summer’s-worth of free lettuce to eat! This will not require anything other than keeping the lettuce alive and checking them for aphids when you pick one 😊.

If you are not interested but may know someone who could be, please send this on to them.

Thank you in advance.
