You should've stood in the middle there and shouted Nut!  Dove! Panda! Snoodle!  and then rounded it all off with Topbird!   We'd have all come running!!!  

We had plenty of picnic to spare ....

 

Those are lovely penstemons

Fruit tree with non invasive roots

There's lots of information here http://www.readsnursery.co.uk/dwarf-fruit-trees/ and Reads Nursery are very helpful if you contact them.

I have no connection with them other than as a very satisfied customer.  Their fruit trees are beautifully packaged and arrive in great condition.

There used to be a very good one between you and the coast, but I've a feeling he's since gone to the great workshop in the sky

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

There's also another thread about blackspot which you may find interesting

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
