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

 

**PLANT & PROBLEM ID PLEASE**

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.

Polypots?

I've used them, they're OK but if you have to move them around and they change shape you can dislodge roots.

I associate them with bedstraws Lyn but as non natives they've probably had to adapt a bit.

Any wine makers out there?

An organic farmer. How lovely Lyn. I'm surrounded by the complete opposite.

Bottle the gg artjak when it stops sending bubbles through the airlock. The secondary fermentation is just a nice little fizz on the tongue when you drink it.

All wine doesn't go mad initially. Just a good mess when it does.
