Best off using black plastic sheeting not tarps. Available online or at hardware stores.

 Hi all, I'm sure something similar was on here recently but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. You can just see the seed pods in the centre of the pic. An ID would be appreciated.

They'll survive if you can get them to germinate. It's been very cool recently even in the GH's.

This winter

According to this website it's a strong El Nino year. They are predicting a a mildish wet end to the year but as from the turn of the year they are predicting colder weather to move in and stay. In past El Nino years we've either been very wet or very cold. As for the berries bit most of the holly around here is full of them as are the pyracantha and other assorted shrubs. I think I prefer cold to very wet especially as I have to work in it.

Japanese anemone - insect hosts

Posted: 19/09/2015 at 09:25

I regularly see bumble bees visiting them along with other bees in one of my clients gardens. Hoverflies and and other small insects visit them as well. So I'd say they are a useful source of nectar for some insects although I suspect they aren't as pollen rich as other plants. The recent weather hasn't been good though it's been too cool but on warmer days I do notice the the visits.
