Caterpillars Eating My Rosa Altbertine


Found these little blighters during a dead heading session last night, does anyone know what caterpillar they are?  I had no idea caterpillars munched roses!!

    Rose sawfly caterpillars - I snip off and bin any leaves affected - they seem to like some particular rose varieties while leaving others totally alone.  

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • OK, thank you!
