The reason I'm not weeding

Posted: 07/07/2015 at 09:19

I have a fine collection of what some would call weeds. I have a formerly huge, now shrinking figwort, being demolished by the fattest mullein moth caterpillars I've ever seen. If you want real wildlife (not just bees on the flowers), you need some weeds

Identify this flower please

Yes, that looks right, the leaves are a bit variable,

Something strange with my courgette flowers

Moving a log pile

Nothing will be hibernating but the larvae of ground beetles etc might be there. The big thing with wildlife habitats is to leave them alone, a wood pile includes the area right at the bottom and into the soil. We have a regular dilemma with the firewood pile, I have heaps set aside for wildlife but wildfife prefers what OH had set aside for the wood-burner

agree with fritillary on 1, Eupatorium cannabinum, hemp agrimony

one of the persicarias for 2. Persicaria campanulata maybe.

That last one has a very white underside and I wonder if it's coltsfoot, Tussilago farfara. But maybe butterbur has that as well, I haven't got any  to check

I think 1 is Ribes sanguineum, flowering currant

2, Symphoricarpusalbus, snowberry

3 Lysimachia, (probably punctata), yellow loosestrife

what is this shrub?

That's good Invicta, I thought it was just me that hated the smell.

Philadelphus much the same

The tuber on that one will be enormous but barely visivle under all those seed heads Some of mine are like dinner plates.
