Hi Mrs Garden, I'm on the top edge of the Colne Valley, Huddersfield and between the wind and the rain not much survives here! Could do with some ladybirds this year tho as our new Gentle Hermione rose (the most amazing scent) has managed to attract a few greenfly that we wipe away every few days. Blitzed the slugs and snails as soon as the snow disappeared this year by nightly physical "search and destroy" missions and so far we have managed to keep on top of them. We employ the usual beer traps, upturned grapefruit halves etc too and touch wood we have suffered hardly any munching!!
