Hi Sybil 

The best way to upload pics on here is to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions.  This gives a picture which we can click on and enlarge to show fine detail.

If it doesn't work let us know.

I find that once a delphinium is established, the slugs and snails don't bother it.

 Hurrumph!  You're obviously better at training your molluscs than I am - I still have to stand over my delphinium with a whip in one hand and a stool in the other! 

HELLO FORKERS!

Feel free to disagree Berghill - it's a good while since I've seen Russian stonecrop 'in the flesh' so to speak

How strange - caterpillars don't eat flies  odd behaviour!  

I think those are Small Tortoiseshell caterpillars

The sand will explain why the slugs/snails didn't attack it when it was young and vulnerable!!!  Good instinctive gardening skills there Clari!!! 

Iceberg scent?

Posted: 12/06/2014 at 10:29

Hi Lisa

The Classic Roses website lists Iceberg Climbing as having 'some scent - 4/10'  in other words, not a lot.

http://www.classicroses.co.uk/products/roses/iceberg-climber/

Don't think there's anything you can do to change what is in it's nature.

If you use the search facility at the side of the above website you will be able to find other roses with more pronounced scent.

Plant ID please

Well, I'm fairly certain that's what it is - it certainly looks like it
