They may have used up all the food in the compost if in a pot , If this is the case then repot in a next size pot  with fresh compost . 

Now they have started to flower with a hand held sprayer give each flower a quick burst. this will help towards setting the fruit . Once fruit starts to appear,feed with tomato food once a week and 

HEY PRESTO!!! YOU WILL GET  SOME PEPPERS!!!!!!!

It does look like a verbascum, hope yours is a " Banana Custard ".

This one has bigger flowers  and deep yellow too .

I set seeds this year for verbascum thaus. This one has small white flowers with a purple stamens . When their is a big group together it always reminds me of a "mist " looking forward to seeing the flower !

Anyone know the identity of this plant please/

Oh no, lily beetles are back!

I didnt know about the lily beatle's eggs so will start to check under the leaves ,  at least using the oil will get a good shine , wonder if it will make the leaves slippery for the beatles . At the moment all the lily beatles I catch that would eat my lillies go into my carniverous plants . 

Lily beatles eat my plants , I pick them off by hand , I feed to my Carniverous plants on the windowsill.  Feed  to a Carniverous plant and stand back and listen to the scream !

They eat my plants - my plants eat them ! 

Talkback: Ruby tiger moth

Posted: 06/06/2013 at 19:57

The Ruby moth is beautiful  , I first  saw one a few years ago and have not seen one since .The iridescant  sheen of the partly closed  wings has come out well . When its wings are fully open, apart from its plumpish tummy it can be mistaken for a very attractive  butterfly. Just shows what beauty lies beneath the wings!
