Holme oak

Posted: 01/08/2016 at 20:37

Hi all,


Not sure where this post should go but does anyone have any Holm oak growing near them that they would be willing to post a few acorns from, please? I'm a teacher and apparently it's the second favourite type of leaf for my class leaf insects :)

Hi all,


Does anyone know the best time to harvest seeds from Lavendula and Salvia, please? Also what's the best technique to do so?


Thanks,

Drooping Perovskia

Posted: 11/07/2016 at 12:18

Hi all,


I have some Perovskia in the school wildlife garden and I was wondering if anyone has any advice about getting it to grow upright as a lot of ours are drooping.


Thanks,


Justin.

Have given those a shot before, doesn't seem to do the trick. Thanks though.


If they don;t have the lichen they revert to the normal brown/yellow coloration.


Thanks again.

No, their vision doesn't work like that. They need to be surrounded by it.

They're a ssp of Extatosoma tiaratum. They don't eat it, they mimic it. I'm in Norfolk.

Yes, but I thought others might see it more on this section.


The zoo can't help sadly. It's just the lichen they require in order to maintain their coloration.
