Hi, I have had the above since April and its still going strong. It's a perennial, so can I take a cutting from it? If so what's the best way?

I have to have two pairs of glasses, one to use to find the first pair I took off! I have not yet lost the second pair yet, but that day will come.

Hi, my snapdrangons are coming to the end of their first flowering. If i remove the flowering spikes will they try to flower again, or is it compost time?

Hi

My trailing petunias are looking a bit droopy. I was thinking of give them a Chelsea chop. Do you think that will revive them.

Why so few insects this year?

In my garden in Aberdeenshire, white tail bumblebees are two a penny. Not many garden butterflies, but loads of those woodland brown ones in the woods. Not many hoverflies yet. Just started to see honey bees and we have orange underwing moths.
