A photo would help.

Lyn, there's often confusion between nectar plants for adult insects and food plants for larvae. They are not the same thing. A lot of the larvae food plants are 'weeds' and no-one wants them. The larvae are caterpillars and no-one wants them except a few loonies like me

Any old plant with plenty of nectar will do for the adults

 

 

Suggestions please - shrubs for shade!

Hydrangea? One of the species not the seaside boarding house ones.

H. petiolata (anomala or whatever it is now) might go as ground cover if nothing to climb up.

Choisya does well in shade but not sure about the clay

help!

Having seen plenty of red corpuscles, (if under a microscope), cyclamen and crocosmia, I'll go with the crocosmia.

Trace, if you can't do a photo can you say how huge? Also were they on the surface or did you dig them up from below the surface? And are they red or brown?

help!

I wondered about that Lyn but then thought they'd have leaves. But maybe old ones don't.

They're more red blood cell shaped than cyclamen

Pity it came to the front of the forum again. We've had a few weeks without all that rubbish

my shrub from next door is not doing well

I don't think that's either of the laurels mentioned. That's not the way they droop and die off.

I agree it's got to be hacked back and soon if it's going to survive. A small rootball can't support that lot

Identification of plant

Hi Maggie, It's some kind of Malva, mallow. Someone will recognise the variety

Any idea what this is please

I don't know that one. Is it hardy?

Yes, but make sure they're ripe, brown and dry, first.
