Re, the Hyacinth bulbs I have quite a lot and as I said some have developed mould ,is it ok to clean them and plant them or will they die and damage the other bulbs,I have a lot of Red White and Blue for a Patriotic show for the Spring in Honour of our Troops past and present

Thank you ,

The strawberries I have are like tiny Dahlia tubers but very dry with lots of hairy roots

  Do I plant up as normal ,ie, in multi purpose compost and then soak or should they be stored in dry compost until spring? Any advice would be really appreciated thank you

Thanks Busy Bee2,I will have a look. Landgirl100,Yes the catterpillars need fuchsias but for healthy Catterpillars you first need healthy Elephant Hawkmoths which I have been reliably informed feed mostly on Willowherb ,this is begining to sound a little like the chicken and the egg isn't it !??!

Brilliant I wish more people would give a little more thought to our beautiful wildlife,I've always thought a lot of what some people call weeds are actually wild flowers in their own right and very beneficial to our wildlife,my wife and I over wintered an Elephant Hawkmoth catterpillar and last night I had the pleasure of releasing one just like the one in the picture after I had the amazing experience of her sitting on the back of my hand for a minute or two before taking flight,it was magical.

WHERE CAN I FIND THIS PLANT I WOULD LIKE SOME IN MY GARDEN AS IT IS THE MAIN FOOD SOURCE FOR THE ADULT ELEPHANT HAWKMOTH WHICH IS VERY BEAUTIFUL AND I BELEIVE SOME OTHER SPECIES AS WELL.

REGARDS,DAVID
