Hi Red - to post a pic on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar at the top of where you type your post, and follow the instructions.. Afraid it's not possible to do it from a phone at the moment.

I'm hoping that with MD and Sophie it'll be more about plants and less about hard landscaping

And do you really mean that last night he should have been encouraging us to go out and buy plants rather than take cuttings????

Hi Pdoc - you can pop in whenever you like - you don't have to post if you don't feel like it - hope things get back on an even keel soon and that you're enjoying your garden. ((hugs))

Well, I just checked a rose for aphids and there, on one bush were three pairs of copulating Harlequin ladybirds - working on the theory that if the English ones aren't around then the Harlequins will do, and that being bigger their larvae will eat more aphids, they're very welcome - an ice cold Campari & soda is being taken in celebration - cheers! B-)

If you google Ermine moth caterpillars Images there are some pics so you can see whether they're the same or not.

Nut, I've only ever seen it in the autumn with berries, not in flower, but the leaves look right to me.

Oh lucky lucky you! I've not heard one for 4 years.

Plant ID please

If you like the look of the nightshade why not consider getting a Solanum crispum Glasnevin .

It's a relative and the flowers are very similar, but you'll get many more of them and it's not so invasive.

Has anyone got any idea what the first flowers are?

You've certainly got some unusual plants appearing.

Have you tried watering them? Although we've had a lot of rain, we're on free-draining sandy loam over chalk, and our garlic needs watering.

I think the pound sign has been subverted by switching to Basic Editor - that's all I can think of.

Are they French Redlegs or English BB - if they're French shouldn't they be Alain?
