What's the star in your garden right now

I sprayed them with provado as soon as I saw the first lily beetle. It was more than eight weeks ago so should be safe for bees now.

The  bees are too busy on the teasels and lavender to bother with the lilies.

i think that originally it was from Hopley plants but they don't do it now. I spread it around so that if I lose mine I can beg some back. The ones in the garden centre don't have the fine blueish foliage. It looks nice in a blue pot as well.

What's this?

Its not the soya protein thats the threat. Its the residue of glyphosate in the soya that disrupts hormones in the body that is the threat.

Mine got very tall and then flopped over. They are ready for harvesting. Check one plant to see. If they have been in the ground for 12 weeks or so they should be ready.
