How to get rid of white flies?

My hollyhocks leaves are covered with white flies and have spread to straw flowers which are just beginning to bloom. Is there a natural way to get rid of them rather than using chemicals?

  • People have had a lot of luck using liquid soap and water mix sprayed on the leaves. Be sure to do the underside as well. @Douglas Hunt do you have any suggestions for Shirley?

    I would first try a commercially made insecticidal soap. There are organic options, including from the brand Safer. Commercial products have been tested to be safe for use on plants, and are often less damaging than a homemade solution you might come up with.
