Elephant Hawk Moth

They're nice moths for people that are a bit wary. They sit on your finger and don't flap about. 

 

What is it ?

10 foot maybe fidget. Not as advertised, I was expecting huge by now but it's probably not well suited by by soil. I bought the seed because it said 'easy from seed' in the catalogue. It was easy to germinate and grow on

Yes BB, all these moths have their habitat. But I wouldn't see much of them if I didn't set a moth trap every month through the summer.

Fairy, book says 'more thinly distributed in Scotland but extending its range' so you may see one soon

I grew Metasequoia glyptostroboides from seed and it looked very much like that at an early stage.

But don't take that as a definite, It's a while ago now

Hi Posy, yes they need sowing so that they get a winter chill. You can sow them as soon as they're completely ripe. If you have a fancy cultivar it probably won't seed true, 

Gritty compost, more grit on top, a cold frame is good, no propagator or other forms of heat. It's the cold that will break dormancy
