I had woolly aphids for the first time this year. They came, they destroyed, they left

Sowing seeds indoors in Sept?

I don't think you would get very good results with indoor sowing at this time of the year.

You could sow some biennuals now,things like foxgloves, forget me nots, honesty and leave them outside,they should give you flowers next year

I buy from seedaholic too, really good germination rates with their seeds and yes I agree the packaging is simple, pretty and infromative

Yes it was pretty big,pansyface. It must have been as I saw it without my glasses.  I can't really remember it's side ways view but I don't think it was the same orangey throughout. It probably won't be there tomorrow but I'll have a look and take another pic if I can.

Thanks for the link Dove. It looks a little bit like the scycamore moth. I had left one of the plants outside so it must have come in on that.

It is big isn't it? I encourage all wildlife but this thing in the house did give me the shivers.

To my shock and horror I saw this on my plants earlier, only closer inspection it has managed to chew it's way through a lot of them and has pooed everywhere

The plant and it are now outside.
