well this evening in london before the rain started, I was checking the plants and my solomons seal (which originated from Dorset about 15 yrs ago) which grows in a pot has got all these purple/grey caterpillars nibbling nicely away, turns out they are not caterpillars but SAWFLY LARVAE ugggh anyway shook them all off and squashed them underfoot….. apparently they do no harm to the plant but I can’t find out what else they may harm…any answers please.
We have just bought some of those solar lights (tacky maybe but they save a fortune on nightlights in the garden! and they work!!
You may remember my peony pic..well had several blooms and loads of buds but evrything now seems dormant, you just can’t win!!
