Wild areas of garden

We can only do our best and keep a sanctuary for wildlife in the garden. My neighbouring farmer is as yours A brown line of killed foliage surrounds all his fields, sometimes extending into our garden.

It might already have been mentioned. loads of flowers are good for insects but remember the larval stage. You can't have butterflies without caterpillars and they need to eat

wildlife is more than just the cutes and pretties

i think all primulas are perennial. Fresh seed, green if you can get it. Sow straight away, well drained, gritty compost, and leave it somewhere shady outside til it germinates. 

Which varieties do you like. I like primroses and cowslips and so do the bees

Ipomoea Nero

It's not hardy but I think it may be perennial

thanks Hollie. it's a bit rain battered now. Like everything else.

Did you send me sweet williams a couple of years ago? They're doing very well this year in spite of the weather

It's all so exciting. I love germinating seeds

I've got some yellow foxgloves pp, D, grandiflora they've been here a year or two and I can't remember who sent me them (as usual)

They seem perennial so far but I'll probably let them seed to be sure.

We probably are bonkers

I've got a short memory Fishy

they should look like the blue patch in the middle. also Birds Foot Trefoil and Bladder Campion that I think you sent me Fishy.

I have converted the former nursery in font of the GH to a place full of insect favourites
