RHS Chelsea Commentary Box: Which Lupin colour?

Posted: 28/05/2016 at 08:33

I fell in love with those red lupins to watching te show. :) wonder if we can get them in Belgium..

But I noticed my lupins got infected a year ago. White bugs everywhere 

Plants almost died.  So maby not a good idea to get more lupins.

I was almost forced to move 8 to 10 bulbs today, but they are already coming out..

Is that harmfull to the plant to move them while they are about to go into flowering modus? Or in spring? Because I think it might take a while thoug before they will acually flower... unless I have messed it up and won't have any flowers at all

Haha Dove that's going to be quite the job  you won't believe how scared I am

of wasps if I notice one in 1 or 2 meters away from me, I drop everything I have in my hands, or what I was doing, and get the hell away from It  I'm terrified of wasps and hoseflies and everything that can sting.. petrified..  

Good thing his dad is not scared.. maby he can teach him hehe

I got a beautiful plum tree to.. but I think I'm going to get rid of it because of wasps..  I got a toddler running around the garden and I'm scared they are going after him.

There are loads on it and I find it hard to understand why you would actually want those voluntairily in your garden haha -Eek-

I just spotted the biggest butterfly that has ever visited my garden!

And I took a picture of it


Does anybody know it's name?

And is it rare? Haven't seen this kind before in my yard.

Yesterday I heard some weid noises coming from

my garden, and when I pulled the curtains away, I noticed that he (or she 

had returned! He was eating ants again.. his favorite meal:


But he's so cautious,. if he spots you he's gone like the wind
