Caterpillars in December?

Posted: 31/12/2014 at 14:35

I'm still finding tiny green caterpillars on my pelagoniums that I brought in to overwinter. I have the same black bits on the windowsills, it helps you to trace them!

This is fun. Best so far 9/10, worst 7/10. I will keep trying for a 10......

Gosh, I've never seen anything eating the fuchsia seed pods. Wonderful.

Anyone know what these are?

It's polygonatum, or Solomon's Seal. I got one last year. Great for a shady border.

I have grown Hungarian Hot Wax for the first time and the chillis are very mild. Never had a chilli before that you can eat raw, even the one that have gone red. The name is a bit misleading.

I think it is an Acanthus. I don't know much about it though.

I usually dead head all the daffs but might leave a few and collect some seeds this year.

Yes, crocus pop up everywhere in my garden. Perhaps the leaves of the developing daffodil were mown out each year. If so I'm surprised the bulb has grown big enough to flower. Love surprises. It's going to look a bit silly, but I can't wait for it to flower.

Any idea how a daffodil has managed to pop up in the middle of the lawn. It has a flower bud on it. Lived here about 7 years and don't recall seeing anything there before. Puzzled......

new guinea impatiens

I started to grow Sunpatiens a few years ago due to the same problem. I take a cutting from each colour and root in water like Lyn and have as house plants over winter. They do very well in a shady border making large plants.
