    Hello @MangoH they don't look very big, is there any bugs underneath? If so rub them off with your fingers. I wouldn't spray because the leaves look delicate.

    Pesky Squirrels

    The advantage of wire mesh is that it can be cut to size and buried just below the surface of the compost in pots and the bulbs will grow through the gaps.

    Would you mind neighbour growing rose on your garage wall?

    Indeed. That’s modern planning for you. I think they knocked it up on the back of an envelope on a Friday afternoon. But I count my blessings and am just very happy to have my own garden.
