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

Night Scented Stock

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

Cornfield Annuals on Clay

Posted: 31/08/2015 at 09:42

I've grown corncockles on clay soil and they did ok. These didn't self seed for me. Not sure about the others but  I would guess that cornflowers would do ok as well.

Are you going to sow these now? I did an Autumn sowing of corncockles one year, they came through ok but did get leggy in the Winter

Not ever heard of night flowering catchfly but sounds interesting

Preperation for the big day!

Looking very good Tootles, very best of luck with them. Love Bob Marley, wish I had seen him live
