Just found seven ladybirds on one rose bush, some of them were making more ladybirds
OH and I searched that rose bush for aphids ... we found just the one! The bluetits have been all over the rose bushes and clematis for the past couple of weeks ... it's a good job they've left one aphid as she'll produce enough babies to feed the ladybirds.
I can't remember removing any aphids from the rose bushes for several years now, and never use sprays.
I went on a slug hunt yesterday evening ......... I found three ... the rest are dealt with by frogs, toads, hedgehogs and nematodes
