Bee problem

Now  is the time to take the cover off and fold it up ready for the winter, if you intend to overwinter anything Is.

The covers go brittle in the hot  sun so best to put it way, then the bees can get to the plants and not get trapped.

They are a beautiful foxglove they are only knee high but perfectly formed so they don't bend over in the wind.

Pond dye

If you have enough plants there's no need to use additives, but then mine  is purely a wildlife pond so wouldn't use anything anyway. My pond water is crystal clear.

Growing succulents from seed (I think I've been diddled)

To be fair Dove, I buy all my seeds from eBay, you know how many I sow a year!  Absolutely everything here is grown from seeds. 

I don't buy from China,  though,  I use Premier Seeds or Just Seeds. Never been let down.

They sell all sorts, multi coloured roses, thred colours on a buddliea bush. Clematis seeds which are nothing like.

usually they are from China.

I think so but if you must you can, you may lose the flowers next year though, I always do them immediately after flowering.

Take just the old flowering stems off, try to leave as much new growth as possible.
