If you remember you need equal amounts of greens to browns, you can put in much more than that.
I collect card, cartons and junk mail from other places, it all goes on except the plastic coated stuff and very glossy.
Beautiful photos, I'm amazed that all those flowers are blooming now, I have most of those in the garden with not even a bud yet! Must be so much warmer up there.
So please you all had a lovely day, and thank you for sharing the photos.
Only Facebook members can see it.
They're either overwatered or you have vine weevil, tip the compost out of the pot and check.
That will be fine, ours always looks like that, next year do it in April it will still be wet and have some rain on it then.
I think you have James, definitely not ladybirds.
I don't think those are verbena Bon at the back, I think they are all weeds.

That's a good picture PD, it clearly shows Ladybird eggs as yellow and elongated, not white and round as OP.
Your picture also clearly shows what they are like when just emerging from the egg.

Found this on the net, looks like it's difficult to grow in uk. Definitely not to be planted outside in the first year, maybe if you keep it in a pot as you need to bring it inside for the winter until it's a big established plant.
