A fritillary? What sort is it  and what type of thing are you looking for? It may be the wrong time to buy them but it's the right time to plan and order.

Any Ideas?

It's not a weed I'm familiar with. I can see what Logan means re Chrysanth but I don't think it is one. I wouldn't rush to dump, it might be something interesting. Can you remember who sent it to you on the seed swap? If you can, PM them and make sure they see this, they might recognize it.

It wasn't me

Ceanothus for bees/butterflies?

Posted: 31/05/2015 at 20:50

I live with HF clk. It's not the end of the world. Two big willows died of it a few years ago now, far to big to consider removing roots. I may be losing the ceanothus but the only other loss has been a couple of clematis. There's an ash sapling gowing right up against the stump and an elder in the stump. They don't mind.

Yes, clk I shall make an effort to preserve mine now, half has died, so I've chopped it off. It may be the end, there is honey fungus in that part of the garden. I'll get another for somewhere else

Wildlife Pond Advice...?

Lysimachia nummularia is another good at the edge of a pond plant. Ragged robin as well. It's nice to have a few uprights like irises but the native Iris pseudocorus is too much for a small pond and I'd go for something not native but better behaved.

There are no strict rules, different creatures inhabit different types of pond. Sun shade, shallow, deep, wherever you find a pond, something will be using it. 

I've never seen a chamomile lawn that look great but maybe yours would be the first. But think about wildlife pond, is a chamomile lawn something that sits easily beside that?
