White nicotiana. N affinis and N. sylvestris, Evening scent to die for. Along with honeysuckle which comes in cream and may come in white as well.

Butterflies

Nectar plants can be anything with nectar, nothing wrong with buddleia. Larval food plants are very specific and need checking out to attract the larvae.

Butterflies are popular and everyone wants to attract them. Unfortunately the opposite is true for the larvae Sad. But I'll continue to grow all the larvae food that will grow in my garden

I woulda said that was Common Emerald Dove

As pansyface says, allergies are personal and nothing to do with toxicity of a plant. 

If it was toxic it would affect everyone

Help to ID this?

I grow my wildflowers for the wildlife so if something makes use of them I'm very happy.

But like fidget I can't see any eggs or pest there

I'd look to starvation or dehydration first. Have you fed it and given it enough water?

I like these better before they flower

OK artjak, thank you

Foxglove seed collections

Posted: 25/06/2014 at 09:56

I doubt if they're ready. They will be dry and brown and loose in the seed cases when they're ready.

But have a look, there'll be plenty. Open one up and see what's in there.

The time to sow is when the foxgloves drop their seed. You don't need to do anything, they will self seed with abandon

You don't need to keep all your foxglove plants if they're over. Just one will do.

Briza media

Briza media won't need shelter, it grows naturally in open grasslands. Why not let it seed and start some new plants. Or split it up, you could to that now. Cut it back and pull/cut it apart.

Right, I'll have a look at that bekkie. Thank you.

Floralies for years the bats went in under the barge boards on one of the gable ends of the house. From there they could access the whole roof space. It seemed a good choice, don't know why they moved. Better for us as well as it wasn't over windows and we all know what's up walls and windows under the entrance to a bats roost

Garden update

It takes a long tome to upload, especially if it's a big file. Try reducing the size.

I cut what my camera produces to 30% of the original and that goes on nicely. I'm not a techie and realise that does tell you much
