New wildlife pond - what should we expect to colonise it first?

Posted: 08/07/2015 at 22:48

I'd expect water boatman and diving beetles fairly soon

Unusual Bug

Maybe not the one. Something with a very low frequency sound that I didn't recognize but tried to match up in the insect book

Is that the one that's very loud in flight Bob?

Weed or plant please?

I think Will is right, Euphorbia lathyris, caper spurge. 

Sowing in greenhouse

Posted: 08/07/2015 at 21:56

You can sow aquilegia now but keep it cool in a shady place, it will germinate quickly. 

For me, all seed is best sown fresh, no extra heat. But all my plants are hardy, and don't need heat

Rainbowfish, I have 'Graham Thomas' and he is niicely scented. A friend has 'Scentsation', ghastly name, fantastic scent.

I read once that for nicotiana the nearer the colour is to white, the better the scent. Not proven conclusively but N. affinis is white and so is N. sylvestris, both fantastic. I had some pretty little yellow ones with no scent at all. This year I've grown N. mutabilis but too soon to comment.

I think the first might be Verbascum blattaria

What is this ground cover plant?

Posted: 08/07/2015 at 20:16

I doubt it will be tender. I don't think it's native but it's gone wild and appears in old brick walls.

Nicotiana affinis is just turning on. A great evening scent but could do with some warmer, stiller evenings to appreciate it,

I agree with sarcococca which is easy and reliable. Daphnes have the scent but not always so reliable.

Honeysuckle, but make sure it's a good scented one
