 Wood anemones for Nut 

Identification needed

Posted: 27/04/2014 at 21:47

Nut, I meant to tell you - we saw wood anemones just coming out in the woods today - I said 'end of April' didn't I?

Ah, cross-posted - hadn't seen the delicate and viola-like

Although they do eat a few slugs, they're not terribly good for them as they can harbour lungworms - they love crunching vineweevils tho

Possibly lamium orvala? 

What have I done?

By the way, how high up were the damaged leaves?  Vine weevils don't fly ....... 

What have I done?

Any flowering plants which grow in the area will take up the chemicals which will pass into the pollen.  It is thought that this contaminated pollen may be poisoning bees.

 If I were in your position I would remove any flowers from any plants in the area this summer before they can be visited by bees.
