Beetle ID please

Looks like Hortum has it! http://www.naturespot.org.uk/species/scarce-fungus-weevil 

I've never seen it before although I grew up in an area with loads of King Arthur's Cakes on the stumps of ash trees etc.

Rose Cutting Successful - now what??

Posted: 22/06/2014 at 20:46

No, a cutting is a clone of the parent plant and will only have the genetic material from that plant.

Some yellow roses do sometimes have a bit of pink on the outer layer - but when your roses open they will be just like their parent.

Flippin 'eck - you really don't let the grass grow under your feet do you!

Holy glyphosate, Batman! What's that?

I love figwort - the first wild plant I consciously learned to identify when I was a child - however, if you were going to offer me some Nut, I think I'll decline, thanks all the same - don't have the room for them here.
