I bought a fancy pelargonium with red spots on the leaves & a few days later I had a cluster of green ?? in rainwater on some leaves. I washed the stuff off & thought nothing of it. 2 weeks later I noticed tiny green catapilars munching on a patio rose bush. I must have fished off 30 of the little blighters just now. They are about 1/4 of an inch in length exactly the same green as the leaves....I don't fancy spraying as the roses are all out in the 2nd flush...Could the invaders have been on the pelargonium?



The short answer is probably yes. Hang a bag of peanuts near the plant. Blue tits & sparrows will help you out

I did see birds hovering by the bush....I wonder if I end up with more roses than leaves.
