Seed pot is/was one of those half pots (usually sold as Cactus pots). It was on a set of shelves along with many others on a south east facing shed side. Peat free compost with a good half inch gravel topping and obviously a fair number of seedlings in it. Also found pupa in other 7 cm square pots in the same area. These had compost in them but were actuallly waiting to be emptied onto the compost heap.
We have cobbled patha in many areas of the garden and they are stuffed wth bee larva.
This acre of land has probably never been sprayed with anything, certainly not for the last 40 years as the previous owners were pig farmers, the next ones did not garden and we have not sprayed in the 18 years we have been here making the garden.
