Black Spot

Posted: 22/09/2014 at 10:46

I don't know whether Rose Clear is safe for bees - like you I prefer not to take risks where our pollinating insects are concerned.  You may find this helpful http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/gardeningadvice/10102631/Can-a-black-spot-spray-restore-your-roses-to-health.html

Asian Caterpillar

Posted: 22/09/2014 at 08:18

So many caterpillars look very similar.  It does look a bit like a Buff Tip, but it also looks similar to pics of the Asian Box caterpillar - from info on the RHS site it seems that the Asian Box caterpillars feed beneath a web - are yours wandering freely over your shrubs or have they spun a web? https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=760

compost bin alive with slugs

Posted: 22/09/2014 at 08:10

My compost bins are about 1m x 1m x 1m.  They're both full at the moment, so to turn them I'm going to  put a tarpaulin/plastic sheet on the ground and empty a bin onto it, stir it around and load it all back into the bin.

Plant disruption - Spring or Autumn

Posted: 22/09/2014 at 07:47

If your soil is contaminated by lead it can seriously affect the value of your property.  It's also not safe to consume vegetables/fruit grown in it - there are serious health issues - so if the council are prepared to sort it out I'd jump at the chance. 

To be honest I think I'd fit in with whatever timescale the council can offer - they rarely stick to them anyway - and use any ensuing damage as an opportunity to re-vamp the garden a bit - every cloud has a silver lining and all that
