Can anyone tell me why alot of the flowers on my Nevada rose are very pale pink but in Spring and Autumn they are the true colour creamy yellow. Also I have the rose Agnes rose and this yr it flowered for the first time and they are the same pale pink

Can I move my peony?

Ive moved Peonys plenty of times but only in the autumn. I usually take all the soil off so I can see where the new buds are for the next year and the art seems to be plant them just below the soil. At this time I usually take off a tuber with a new shoot and found this the best way to increase them. They have always flowered the following year.

I have a 5yr tree that drops almost all its fruit when they are only the size of a pea and everyone has a black spot on it at the bottom the size of a pin head. The ones left of which there arnt many dont have this spot. Ive read everywhere and it seems its the plum sawfly - am I right? If so the solution seems to be Derris but that is no longer available so what wld be the alternative? Ive also gone thro the soil at the base and cant find any of the grubs mentioned. Would it be any good putting a grease band round it?
