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?

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

Did you see them on Springwatch?

Taking caterpillars into underground tunnels and laying an egg in them  for their offspring to feed off.  Nature's amazing!  Who needs sprays to kill bugs?  

There's something out there to get all of them if we look after Nature.

The exception that proves the rule is of course the Lily Beetle, but it's our fault it has no predators here - we introduced it, even if unintentionally 

Besides, I'm a predator of Lily Beetles
