That's a cultivar of R. laciniata. I have the species and it is too tall for it's strength. I think a chop would be worth the experiment. It was on my list to try this year but none of the list got done.

That wasn't a lot of help was it

MORNING FORKERS

Morning

I cansympathise with the rubble gardeners. Mygarden is based on other peoples' rubbish. The concrete  and bricks found a home under a shed base and paved area. The thousands of plastic fertilizer sacks and the carpets were more difficult to accommodate. Skips had to be hired. Fortunately this was before the price of skip hire became silly. 

Some plants do OK in rubble though. They have to.

Off to reorganise the babies now.

Hi fairygirl. We use a light trap but sugaring is good cos you don't need any equipment. Try it, you'll be amazed.

You might get some wasps, we get the odd one in the trap, but mostly they've gone to bed after dark.

Waiting for a report back from waterbutts

I like UK safari. Couldn't see this one on there though. 

I wondered if it was one of the drabs, Northern perhaps but I'm no good at caterpillars apart from the very distinctive ones.

I got some great ID charts for amphibians for the grandchildren from UK safari. They've got lots of different ones.

Good Evening FORKERS

hello folks.

Been moving all the babies today to make space for the next stage of house painting. Then I get to move them all back again when it's done. Maybe I'll do some proper gardening tomorrow
