While not truly organic, nicotine water has proven to be an effective general pesticide. Neem oil is organic I believe and will do the same thing. You could also try a dish of beer or copper wire to keep the slugs and snails out.
Spider mites are hard to combat but outdoors you have an advantage, you can use natural predators. Go to any large garden center and ask for some ladybugs, they will tear those mites apart. Once the mites are gone, the ladybugs will migrate away.
Im having the same problem with mites outdoors, was about to start a new thread but I found this. Thanks for that penguin I'll get some lady bugs
