I like Longmeadow, one man's claustrophobic is another man's cosy

I remember her granma, the yellow flag iris in my pond came from her. It is a shame when people come and go, I'm like that myself, a loner at heart. As has been stated though, bekkie's absence could be due to a multitude of reasons.

Plants that a rubbish for pollinators

I've also found Viper's Bugloss (echium vulgare) an excellent bee plant and it's flowers are blue

I've been using coir mixed with John Innes No 2 at roughly half and half. I find coir retains water better than peat and the JI gives it a bit more body. The plants are growing just as well and see no need to carry on using peat.

Regarding annuals, my blue cornflowers seem very popular. Did I read somewhere that bees only see the blue end of the spectrum?

Firefly - if you stick with species plants as nut points out, you can't go far wrong. You can have lovely displays with hardy annuals such as cornflower, corncockle and wild poppies. You get lots of colour and the bees get their pollen
