I making a bug hotel, but I don't know what diameter I need to make the holes. I'd like to attract as many different types of insect.
Nets with smaller holes and check for any gaps they can squeeze through
Bob Flowerdew in AG magazine recommended growing potatoes at the normal time. When you dig them up select the best potatoes, put them in a tin with sand or compost. Bury the tin (and remember where), dig the tin up at Christmas time and they should be like new potatoes. Disclaimer: I haven't tried this myself.
I emailed Knoll gardens with planting conditions and they emailed me back a list of suitable grasses
I've got a calathea from B&Q. Likes high humidity and partial shade
I have ordered from Crocus and Knoll gardens and the plants that arrived were in good condition and well packaged. Have a look and see if they do what you want.
If you water the plant from below instead of onto the top of the soil you won't get them
Put them in curries or chillies, cut into chunks.
