Those 2 little seed leaves are geranium

The trailing one isn't. What else have you sown?

Slugs don't always leave a visible trail and some slugs are very small so you don't see the trail easily

too late?

I should think you'll get some flowers, maybe not seed

Back to Specsavers Dove

Bless you Edd

Moth trap fidget, a box with an overhead light. The moths are attracted and fall in then hide amongst the egg boxes in the bottom til we come and let them out. No damage to moth, they all fly off when released.

Some do sugar traps as not all moths come to light but I've never done than yet. 

Judging by the number of moths I saw in the headlight last night it's time for another trap.

I've got lots of Speckled Woods, more every year. Some Red Admirals and quite  lot of skippers which we don't often see. What I haven't seen are all the meadow brown.gate keeper, ringlets that I expect in the meadow. But it may be too early. I associated them with marjoram and that's not out yet.

The vipers bugloss is so full of bees and hoverflies there wouldn't be room for anything else

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
