Allium questions

Do allium neapolitanum attract bees? And does letting alliums seed mean the bulb isn't replenished?

any other arachnaphobes out there?

I don't dislike them, they're fine at a distance standing still, just terrified. A harvest man or spider on my leg recently was one of the few occasions I've ever screamed

I try to garden in harmony with wildlife so I'm thrilled my plot is full of harvestmen and spiders, but on a moist September morn ing when it needs mostly clearning, weeding, and mulching ready for chard seeds and shallot sets my arachnophobia can be a bit of a hindrance. Any other sufferers out there? It's even harder now I can't just drag my husband out, he was being napped on by a teething/mmr'd toddler...

Good advice, I've brushed the slugs off and will try and remove the mud when it's dried

Can I ask if both sets of seed came from the same place?

There were mice in the garage at one point and we don't want them back! I tend to use the pantry which is a little better. Thanks, I'll bring them in when I can.

Thanks! The Leymus does look good, I may have a go at growing it from seed.

The foliage is all laid down, mostly brown but some green remaining. The weather for the rest of the week is decidedly monsoon-like, and I won't be around to harvest next week. The only space I have for drying/storage is in the house. What would you do?

If I had loads of time and skill i'd make something as anything I can afford will no doubt be overpriced and on the flimsier side.
