Just be careful that they are Lily beetles. There is a Red Cardinal beetle which may be mistaken for Lily beetle. They are gardeners friends not enemies.

Perfume Viburnum.

Our V. juddii is very highly scented.

The most scented one we know of is Charis, that is a much smaller growing shrub. Another lower growing and very scented one is V.Mohawk.

We have about 25 different Viburnums in the garden.

If the stems are square then it is one of the mint family, they all have square stems. I would go with Dove's suggestion. A thug to get rid off too!

Check out your greenhouse.

You mean that you don't turn your pots a quarter of a turn every day to keep them in good shape and not growing towards the sun?

Moving bulbs

Yes, this was often done to make room for summer bedding. Just give them a good watering to settle the soil around the roots and try not to damage too many roots when moving them.

Colchicum autumnale from seed

Posted: 02/04/2014 at 12:43

Saffron does not  come from  Colchicum, it comes from Crocus sativus.

All parts of Colchicum are poisonous.

Keep an eye open for the bulbs flowering in the packets in Garden Centres. They often then sell them off cheaply. It does not matter if they have flowered in the shop, you can still plant them and get flowers the following season.
