I don't think the Glanville Fritillary visits Lincolnshire any more but I have the plants just in case it drops in on the way North. We've had a Silver Washed Fritilllary once or twice but not regularly.

Just grass is boring GD. I find it hard to walk between the cowslips and primroses of grass paths in spring

Primula vialii?

The same, get it fresh, before the seed pot goes brown, and sow it don't save it.#

Everything seeds best in the lawn or in a gravel drive. They make good seed beds I've rescued loads of plants from the drive and grown them on

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
