It's the larvae that need specific food plants.

Nectar gatherers like anything with a good supply of nectar

Oh yes. They do as they please,  we can't influence them.

I'm happy with what turns up

That's very satisfying WG. I'm sure more will turn up soon. Along with the butterflies.

Today for the first time in years I saw small tortoiseshell investigating the nettles.

They're along our boundary and  so much at risk from the farmer and his killing sprays

powdery mildew on polemonium

Posted: 01/07/2014 at 16:21

Some things are very prone to mildew and polemonium is one of them.

Spores are everywhere, don't worry about the secateurs. As Edd says it doesn't need water. In fact I associated with very dry conditions.

I stopped growing the blue ones because they always looked so bad. The yellow species don't seem to suffer

That will be sawfly larvae and/or snails on the Solomon's Seal, AmandaBen

Soil Type

Most people grow their veg in whatever soil they've got, adding manure etc  to improve it.

Raised beds are in fashion but a long way from essential
