6 holes have been filled and the bee has left. Was definitely a bee and only the 1.I was watching it for ages it went into the empty whole maybe laying eggs then it would pick up a few of the caterpillars and stuff them in the whole then it would fly off and come back every couple of minutes and start filling it in with mud.

Got a couple of bee hotels for the kids 2 months ago one to take into school and one for the Garden. I noticed yesterday 2 holes had been filled in and a wasp in another hole doing something. Looked online and found out It's not a wasp and Is a solitary bee and is filling the hole with mud. I spent about an hour watching it fly back a forth filling it with mud. I also noticed it was putting baby green caterpillars in the hole before filling them which was strange. attached a couple of pictures but not great quality.

Its the first time seeing something like this even as a kid I didn't now a 30 year old male and I feel like a big kid getting excited about this.

Mushrooms in my raised bed and lawn

Posted: 17/07/2014 at 07:04

For the last month or so I've been fighting a losing battle with mushrooms. They are sprouting up everywhere in my raised bed and lawn, hundreds of them. Raised bed is mulched with bark. Do I just leave them or what can i do.

Thanks Verdun, I went for the row of lavender but expensive so go small ones and are not growing very fast so hopefully see the benefit of them next year.

Starting the front garden now, just have to tell the wife.

Statue is a crafted masterpiece.

Just an update I took yesterday of my raised bed. A variety of plants in it not sure of the names of most as I didn't keep labels. I'm happy with it and will see how it does this summer and then move a few around if needed once flowered.

No they haven't flowered yet, bought it in Lidl  last month while shopping.

leaves on this plant keep going this colour, don't even remember the name of the plant. I must take note when I buy them,lol.

I keep cutting out the bad ones but the next day more have gone the same.
