Just messaged you Steephill :)
Yes, Gaultheria I meant sorry :) I'm looking for growers of G. shallon.
Is anyone here growing Salal (Gauleria shallon) at all?
Does anyone know the best time to harvest seeds from Lavendula and Salvia, please? Also what's the best technique to do so?
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.
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.
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.
Not sure if this is in the right section but I'm a teacher at a primary school and in our class we have stick insects which need lichen branches to keep their colouration. I'm just wondering if anyone has any near them that they would be willing to post. I'd be happy to pay postage of course. The type I'm looking for is in the picture below...
