90% of the flowers I grow in my garden are for wildlife. I have a few pretty ones for myself but mostly I consider what is useful for wildlife before myself.

I get plenty of wildlife that visit me

Scotch bonnets help

 I have Scotch Bonnets amongst others in my unheated greenhouse. Minimum temp so far has been 3-4c and the plants havent batted an eyelid.

I can even see the first flower bud forming on one of my plants, I must say that my greenhouse warms up very quickly in the morning due to its location so maybe this helps.

Oh no, lily beetles are back!

It too got squished!
