HELLO FORKERS!

Morning campers. Damp here so there'll be hundreds of those 'little darlings' out there no doubt...

Too tired last night to be on here so off to see what you've been up to.

Any thoughts what type of plant this is?

I have some cuttings from last year if you want one SweetPea. I promised a white one to GardenGirl but I have a couple of deep purple ones as well - 'Black Knight'  which should be well enough rooted now. They won't make very big plants this year - next year they will be about the size of Panda's.

most GCs and DIY stores sell buddleias though - you'll probably get them in the summer.

ID help please

There are hundreds of varieties - one of those is actually a Heucherella - a cross with Tiarella so there's even more types! They're useful for ground cover - the bees like the flowers. Easy to split up or grow from seedlings - they do seed around.

Does  the foliage look a bit like this ighten? Might be a different colour - plummy for instance. If so, the ladies are correct!

Glad to see you're on the mend - and back to your usual jokey self

I found a giant slug trying to hide behind a daffodil stem next to a clematis which he'd been feasting on....not any more....

I gave up on lupins many years ago - if it wasn't slugs it was greenfly. The garden at the time was pretty barren - I could probably have tried them again some years on when I had lots more predators coming in but by then I'd gone off them!

Don't know about good Lesley - but it'll be busy!

Some very ominous clouds looming so not sure if I'll get anything done when I get home. I don't have any problems with vine weevils normally. Not sure why that is  but I'm grateful anyway! 

Lots of leatherjackets uncovered when I've been digging out new areas in grass for planting. Birds have enjoyed those.
