I'd have to let them flower.

What's this bug/ insect? & bumblebee advice

Posted: 01/10/2016 at 18:04

Early flowering plants are useful for bumble bees, they're out and about early. There are plenty of summer flowers without making extra effort. I have a very early flowering pulmonaria, P. rubra I think (though it could be a hybrid, I never get seedlings ) crocus, snowdrops and Nonea lutea which has germinated over the last few weeks and will flower February/March in normal years but was flowering on NYD this year. And some water when it's dry

Can't assess the size of your fly but if it's big have a look at Volucella zonaria, a hoverfly.

Couple of IDs please

I should think the sedge is Carex pendula. Attractive but not for most gardens, too huge and invasive. I have a clump that takes up a circle 6' across and the flowering spikes are taller than me

Is this a weed?

But it's one of out native mallows so if it's a weed it's an alien weed.

Fidget is right re weed definition. If you like it collect some seed, it might be an annual. If you don't like it, don't let it seed.

If there is one incident involving one plant and one cat the press will make it sound like a pandemic.

Cats and foxgloves have coexisted since before journalists were invented

my record with cuttings is poor Angi, don't hold your breath

what are these?

red currants are over

I can't  see the leaf shape well but might be Tamus communis,  Black Bryony or similar climbing berry producer.

Not Bryonia dioica, (White Briony)  or Solanum dulcamara, a nightshade
