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.

White tail bumblebees are two a penny in our garden at the moment. A few honey bees are coming in now. No butterflies, but plenty of orange underwing moths
