Hmmmm 🤔 maybe 😀 Are they not full of additives too? Must admit that I don't remember fizers, but certainly remember love hearts (not Jasper Carrott's ones though!) 😂☺

Fizzers are little tablet sweets same as Parma violets but fizzy and in different colours I bet you’ve had some @jeatacake

Actually now you've described them, I think I have. Maybe they had another name when I were a lad 🤔

Possibly 😀 can you remember candy sticks that looked like you were smoking a fag? Haha 😆 @jeatacake

Yep, as as a kid, that's exactly what I did 😂😂😂 My favourite was a sherbet thing with a tube of liquorice, apart when you inhaled the sherbet by accident, lol!

I remember them 🤣 I can remember this grumpy old farmer he was going to tell my mum he’d caught me smoking because I was pretending to with them candy sticks 🤣🤣🤣 @jeatacake

Thanks Laura,Vanessa and Keely ,it does smell awesome I can't wait for the flower to get like yours nessa 💜🙌 Ive been having to spray it for aphids as I have with all my roses 🌹 there seems to be a swarm of them in my garden at the moment 🤔 @columbiariver @nessas @keely

Della, I've put a few bronze fennel around my roses and honeysuckle. Someone on Gtags shared that they help control or keep aphids away. I've had very few aphids so far. Could be the season, could be the bronze fennel. Worth a try anyway?

Have plenty of green fly also Della first thing I do when I go into the garden is squish them from my roses 🌹 they are all over one of my honeysuckle too 🙄🙄 apparently they don't like garlic so going to make a concoction of organic spray watch this space 😳👌🏻

Might be Della, I have them too! 🙄 don't know what else we're s'posed to do - I might try the garlic spray on them, I know you can't keep using the Rose clear or Provado spray...
