I've found beer traps the most effective environmentally friendly method.
But you missed the best bit about Monty........Nigel!
A paragraph or two wouldn't go a miss
I would say its a yucca gloriosa flower. Spiky bugger!
Hi there, I've got it in my garden, great ground cover in semi shade, impatiens niamniamensis variegata
Thanks Busy Lizzie, no it's Musa basjoo so not edible, so chuffed it's flowered after getting it through 3 winters. I had Musa lasiocarpa flower a couple of years ago, but this is a more impressive flower.
No jungle would be complete will out some bananas!
The leaves are aromatic on those choisya aswell
Is your tree fern in a sheltered place? strong/constant winds not only break fronds but dry out tree ferns quickly. I water my tree fern trunk and crown every evening at the moment so it doesn't dry out. Could also try a dilute liquid feed straight into the crown once a month when in growth.
sikokianum, with that marshmallow center!
A sexy arisaema please!
