Did anyone else notice...

... no sawfly larvae this year? Usually my delphiniums get decimated before I get a chance to pick or spray, but I haven't found one this year and my delphs are looking awesome. None on my roses either although I have a few leaf miners.

I noticed too.

I do have a small amount of damage on potted roses, but not my Emily Carr and George Vancouver. I suspect they're coming though, now that we've got more heat. I finally saw two dragon flies yesterday, and one bee :)

I had a bit earlier in the year that I handpicked but the delphs are starting to bloom now and looking good.

Has anyone else noticed the horseflies are particularly aggressive and plentiful this year? I mean, they really come out in droves to attack.

Hey bd. If you'd like, you can refer to the thread called "Delphinium question" posted on this forum on June 24, 2010 :)

Read the whole thread and it'll probably tell you what you've got :)

The delphinium worm is responsible for the damage on your delphiniums...when you see the growing tip curled up in the Spring, just give it a squeeze and you'll know when you get one of these critters. The plant usually recovers, but it IS unsightly for a while. I noticed less damage this year too, but I did find a couple of these worms.

My roses are showing sawfly damage, so can't say that they are less of a presence this year...

I had some on both delphiniums and roses; picked through them and everything is fine except for the very heavy rain and pea-sized hail we just experienced.

Oh no sorry about your hail Shilla.

What I said about leaf miners? There are actually quite a lot this year. And some rose rust. Although still no black spot (never) and I haven't noticed any powdery mildew.
