There are tiny black insects (like minute beetles) all over my roses and on the inside of my kitchen window. They don't look like aphids to me. Any ideas? Are they pests?

Hi Wakeshine.  


They are lovely! My friends in France have this variety. Wish I'd collected some seeds while I was there.

Hi folks


I did reply to the post re my Aqs. Not sure where it went.


When I got home from France I was delighted to find they had all flowered !

Sorry to sound impatient! Only just saw the reply to my post. Will check what they look like when I get home Friday. Got a carful of plants & cuttings with me plus 3 bargain potted Heucheras with bright pink flowers -  (6 for €10) and 3 Wand Flowers €1 each from a Brocante. Nightmare trying to keep the car out of the sun for the 3 day return trip!

Anyone had experience of dull, greeny beige flowers (re above post.) My friend's display is beautiful, with purple/white doubles, dark pink and some very pretty pale yellow/pink ones. Maybe they don't like England!  : (

Thanks Ladybird. If I get failures I think it might be due to too much moisture? (mould) My brick built


potting shed at home gets a lot of condensation ( big windows that came out of house.) This pic is before garden makeover.
