Why so few insects this year?

Its a bit early for butterflies here for me but I have loads of bees, the borage cerinthe lupins foxgloves and echium were the star favorites. The penstemons are just out now bees like those.

You could delay the buddlias flowering by cutting them down later, say April, mine are not even out yet but when they are, they will be loaded with butterflies.

I sowed Firestorm last year and this, bought from Marshalls and all 4

5 germinated, I will definitely buy from them every year they are very easy to look after, they are drought tolerant, so plant and walk away, I had a fantastic crop last year.I do put lots of mu*k in the trench though.
