As they are a member of the rose family and my roses haven't performed fantastically I would suggest the weather.

Also there is the grizzled skipper (butterfly) that could havehad something to do with it

I also love the red rum joke.  I personally do not see the massive issue with Ants.  I too have had a lot of them outside, red and black.  I just give pots a good soaking a few times at first and then a few more over for a couple of days that gets rid of them.  Red ants aren't an issue, the best thing to do is not disturb the nest and they wont disturb you.

After researching Ants in the lawn and borders, it is very difficult to get rid of them

any suggestions

to make it cheaper, ask your neighbours for cutting or seeds from their plants too.  Maybe after the first meeting 

\Good luck

Can anyone help identify this plant?

they can be a bit of a "weed" if you have the right soil, not that I would mind I think they are beautiful

I experienced the same as most, I could not believe my eyes when they arrived.  I complained to T&M to cancel the order, they refunded my money and said that they would send them - as they did.  They were very small but after potting on, they are all coming along very well.

I also ordered the black perennials collection which after a two month delay arrived (after constant emailing) only to not be the black collection because 6 out of the 9 plants were substitutes.  I did get £10 in vouchers for the inconvenience.

All in all - I'm not over the moon with T&M and would hastedly use them again
