There are a few carmine red , no yellow, but a lot of terracotta in my batch. I think they must be mainly off bishop of oxford.

Not very mixed. I think they will look better as single colour groups,so I will be labelling and then growing on next year.

What...litter grabber???

I didn't get to the nursery. I spent most of the day waiting for a district nurse for Dad, only for her to turn up at 3pm, spend 5 minutes, agreed that a bungalow is OK for someone who is frail, and then took Mum shopping. Someone else might come to see if he needs grab handles in the toilet.  I suspect this would be easier if we did it all ourselves, or maybe thats what they want

Wolf spiders must be eating something to survive. When their food runs out they will move on or die. If you really can't cope ,use an insecticidal spray.
