I think that they are cinnabar moths.

Well done Tray14, I truly had not a clue so I'm very impressed :)

Thank you for the suggestions, I'll pass them on to her.

Oh my goodness Hostafan1, you truly are a hosta fan! Hmm, should've guessed that from the name ;) How do you keep slugs/snails away, (I only have three in pots and struggle)? On a guided walk a few years ago, we all commented on the fab hostas, the head gardener said they use pellets very sparingly in Feb, then mulch with shredded laurel prunings (that's when I heard about the poison in laurel).

Fab! Woohoo, well done and thank you! It may be an easy one, but not for me. (I couldn't believe it when she asked if I could see the labels on the first photo, err, no! I didn't mean to post a quiz!)

Thank you for the suggestions. She's found a few labels, so only needs to know three after all, I'll attach an updated photo. Also... Wow, that's a huge number of varieties, I had no idea!  (Btw, I realise that she has planted too many, too close, but she likes them and she'll find out what works for her.)

Can anyone help? My daughter has started a little collection, but realised that she should've made a note of what she bought. We'd love to know what they are! Thank you.

What trees to plant in the sandy soil of the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town

Posted: 26/04/2017 at 11:44

Oh my goodness, that's so different from my green uk garden. I'd suggest that you google Cape Town gardening, I sure there's help online or locally to you.  For example, I found this when I tried it...


Sorry I can't help. Good luck anyway!

Mystery plant time

It's a type of wallflower - a bit like Erysimum Bowles mauve, I think. We had a yellow one like that which lasted two seasons and seeded, but then vanished. I think the soil was too wet, cold and claggy..
