Sawfly link here 

I've had (or rather my roses have) sawfly in the past ... they weren't as Grajean describes. Little beggars strip the leaves leaving just the stems and leaf veins.  Never seen them wrapped in folded leaves.

Here's a link 

Gorgeous pics. 

I've just had a quick phone call from Wonky .......... thought you'd all like to know that she seems to be living up to Forkers' Standards - the boss seems very happy and so does she   She's been weeding around pleached pears in a walled garden ........ sounds idyllic ....... think she's got something to you in the citrus house (not orangerie, they grow lemons in there  ........ what would you call that?)

Soil level and trees

' Batter the earth down' = create a slope. 

You can't expose the tree roots without killing the trees.  

You may have to re-think your plans for the garden ... perhaps if you post some photos of the garden someone will come up with some more options.

To post a pic click on the camera icon.  If it does't upload try reducing the size - that usually works.

Lovely idea Hogweed 

Forget me nots, vinca major, aquilegia, tulips, Narcissus 'Tresamble', bergenia, clematis alpina 'Willy', wallflowers  cerinthe major, hellebore and allium triquetrum  ... think that's all of them.
