 I am looking forward to seed swapping for next year. I have really got into sweet peas,cutting them and bringing them indoors for everyone to enjoy.

I think I inherited this and it has never flowered. Do I keep or compost. Looks similar to a day Lily but should be in flower now.

I have an astrantia that wasn't doing very well in my garden,it hadn't grown and the leaves were a bit brown and straggly. So I have dug it up and put it in a pot to give it some tlc. It is away from slugs and in plain sight so I can water it and so forth. Try this method but don't get rid as some plants will come back next year.

what caterpillar is doing this and why?

Nut and edd thanks I think you are right. Isn't it funny how you try and grow something and it doesn't happen for you,then when you are not even trying up pops one!

I have quite a few plants that have their top leaves curled up with a caterpillar inside,is it doing any harm?

 Sorry,it's difficult to take a photo with my kindle.
