How hardy are my plants

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 10:37

I've grown Monarda fistulosa from seed, still in pots. Will I need to put it in the cold GH for winter or can I plant out

and Allium senescens, recently bought at the end of season sale. I don't know this one, it's not like the other allium bulbs. Is it hardy?

Thanks all

I've got more species of slug than shown in the ID guide.

Are these the large  orange/tan coloured ones that I don't remember from years ago? 

If so, we have lots

I should think what I saw would have had canes inside the ends, pinning it down

ON a recent allotment tour I saw what look like blue plastic water pipe being used. The sort we used to run a water supply to the GH, about an inch in diameter (ish)

They're very clever birds. I like to watch them with fat balls in  string bags.

I like my fat balls in the feeders for preference but the jays manage better with the bags, hooking them up onto a branch and demolishing them

I'm not sure they breed often enough in the UK to worry about what the caterpillars eat.

If you separate the link to one drive from the rest of the text and then 'enter' it shows up as a link like the one in Dove's post.

I could see the pic bit I can't tell one houseplant from another

Hi Philippa, the bedstraw if for the caterpillars (if we get any). The adult moths seem happy with any nectar producing flower. Ceratostigma here. Maybe because it's late floweringand we rarely see them early in the year

I haven't got much ladies bedstraw at the moment but lots of hedge bedstraw. Not sure they're breeding here though, It takes 2 and most years I only see one.
