Didn't realise that's what hogweed looks like when it's gone to seed, I saw those shapes when I first moved here. Something nice about the structure of it.

 

 

Help. Not sleeping.

I sleep like a log, but one thing I found helpful when I didn't, was putting a few drops of Lavender essential oil onto my pillow. Natural,cheap and effective

Haven't seen for them years, had one in school. Sounds like they get on very well without the men

Received 48 perennial plugs, but what do I do next?

I bought a similar offer a few years ago, it's a difficult one. The plants when they get to you are so tiny. I think a potted mine on and kept them in a coldframe/mini sturdy greenhouse.

I love Echinaceas,  but as little plants I find them very difficult to keep them alive and over winter. Once they've got a  good root system under their belts, they are so strong. but the slugs do love them. Controversial but a few slug pellets around the base of the plants would really give them a head start
