Thanks Bob! Look like bumble bees so I guess we're very lucky to have them 😊 don't mind sacrificing a few parsnip seedlings for them!
Just noticed this thread and wondered if anyone has any advice. We think we have a bees nest in the corner of one of our raised veg beds. Lots of bee activity there in last few days. I'm happy to have these bees in our garden but just bit concerned at how big the nest might get and don't want to disturb them too much. How long are they likely to stay?
If we ever manage to get that far I'll post them up 😊
Great, thanks for the tip B3!
Ah fab thank you both 😊 Is it worth keeping? I think it looks attractive but don't know anything about it!!
My techno skills never cease to amaze me!
Sorry can't seem to upload photo
Can anyone tell me what this is please?
Thanks for your reply Dave. I think you're probably right about the lack of water - it's looked ropey since last summer so will try some additional watering to see if that helps. Maybe we should have pruned it properly a few years ago!! Will see if we can prune off some of the dead stuff as you suggest - guess it may well look worse before it looks better 😃 Thanks for your advice!
