What is this going to be?

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.

Ragged robins are meant to be good for damp areas, the bees like them and they are really easy to propagate

Thrilled to see this afternoon's visitor

I like their seeds Bob, I have always had good results from them.

Often when I've grown stock in modules I get a lot of germinations but a lot dampen off. I think they prefer to be kept on the dry side, I try and remember to water from the bottom.

The 2 pictures show the stock that I got from seedaholic in July. These were direct sown in little trenches and just covered over


They completely covered the slate, it's only recently that I have got them back and have still got a few going strong
