It does look like a verbascum, hope yours is a " Banana Custard ".

This one has bigger flowers  and deep yellow too .

I set seeds this year for verbascum thaus. This one has small white flowers with a purple stamens . When their is a big group together it always reminds me of a "mist " looking forward to seeing the flower !

Anyone know the identity of this plant please/

I killed a conifer with bonemeal ( early days ).

Oh no, lily beetles are back!

I didnt know about the lily beatle's eggs so will start to check under the leaves ,  at least using the oil will get a good shine , wonder if it will make the leaves slippery for the beatles . At the moment all the lily beatles I catch that would eat my lillies go into my carniverous plants . 

Lily beatles eat my plants , I pick them off by hand , I feed to my Carniverous plants on the windowsill.  Feed  to a Carniverous plant and stand back and listen to the scream !

They eat my plants - my plants eat them !
