I wouldn't try moving buddlejas. Grow a new one from a cutting instead.
You would probably get a better bush, faster than moving the old one.
I'm more than sceptical about it.
Plants produce oxygen, using carbon dioxide and sunshine.
I can't see that this would do anything different to a normal hosepipe, with a spray attachment.
If you just let the other seeds fall, you will probably have more than you want growing next year. If they are coming up too thickly, you could pot on or transplant a few.
and next spring the slugs will love them almost as much as delphiniums.
Dove, what roscoea did you get? having had such a gorgeous display from Kew Beauty this year, I fancy a red one.
Intermittant showers forecast. I'm betting on a downpour over Notts /derbys border around 5 to 6. I've brought my coat.
The ones with baby cucumbers behind are the females. You need to keep these as they develop into cucumbers. The male ones do not have a cucumber behind, just a small blob. Remove all these , preferably before they open,, because pollinated greenhouse cucumbers will develop seeds and become bitter.
look like some type of willowherb. Pull out as soon as poss.
If you want more ferns, they grow from the spores which will be brown dots on the back of the fronds.
Better start saving jam jars. When they really get going you can expect 3-4 kg per bush, every year.
I had aphids on the teasels, then the ladybirds arrived, and now no aphids and the ladybirds have moved on.The bees are loving the teasels now, as they have started flowering.
I seem to have mainly white butterflies this year so far. Mostly under the net protecting the cabbage from pigeons.
