I just leave the seed to develop and ripen, and then when the pods are beginning to open I cut the stem off and swish it around the garden where I want more foxgloves.  Then when the seedlings appear I thin them out and transplant some and then leave them to it.  Simple

wasps in my polytunnel

We've had a recent influx of ladybirds - they're all over the runner beans and I came indoors yesterday with several on me - I had to go outside again and release them.

We have several  wasps around - have had all summer - there's a lot of old trees around here - I wonder if they provide good nest sites ...?

Mine's got a few blooms on now and it does the same most years - but it has most on over the winter.

I've also got some primroses blooming at the moment

I'm with Morrisons

Absolutely Pdoc!  He does - but it will cost money - and the vast majority of British public are so used to cheap food and very short-termist in their  - my fear is that even if he gets into power and starts changing things, the media will do what it does best and spread dissatisfaction and he'll be voted out after one term and we'll end up with Mrs T Mark II in his place

It was Mrs T who got rid of our manufacturing industries because she was in thrall to the bankers - she thought this country could be supported by the Financial Services Industry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Look where that got us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've seen it described as a 'patio dahlia' but I've also seen it described as growing up to 30" tall , which when in a pot makes it well over a metre tall! 

Presumably for the larger patio?
