I thougt we had a hornet on the ivy, but I think it is the biggest hoverfly I've seen. It is twice the size of normal hoverflies.

Having trawled the internet, I think they must be Kniphofia uvaria "Nobilis" It seems the only one to grow to 2m. Quite a few sources but the postage is excessive. It may have to wait for a bit. I put it on the list.

I have been to Trentham gardens today. The  traffic Island outside and several areas inside by the lake have been mass planted with an annual mix, a lot of cosmos, and prairie areas. Last year they had one bit by the pond. Pictorial meadows who supply seed for such schemes have been working with a lot of councils, to mass seed areas to encourage wildlife, it also looks good.  Just an idea to throw into the mix...

Found this at the beach? when can i plant it and what is it from?

Looks like an Almond.


Tropical countries have something similar but larger that they call sea almonds that grow on Beaches. Where are you?

Bit off topic, but our roadsweeper comes around regularly. The day before the bin men scatter stuff all over.
