Butterfly Decline

Posted: 03/09/2013 at 13:57

The lack of different species for a start. My garden is full of various whites, a few peacocks and commas. I've seen maybe 3 common blues, one painted lady, a few tortoiseshells and no red admirals. This is not what I was seeing a few years ago when the garden was alive with all species.

Earlier on there were a few meadow browns, one gatekeeper and a few ringlets. The only butterfly I've seen more of this year is the speckled wood.

I don't think they're agapanthus, I'll have a look in my bulb book. They look a bit familiar but they're nothing I grow.

I should think it's way too late if the mimulus have died

Poppies do very well sown now Verdun. Some of my best annuals have been those that have grown through thewinter

I'd plant them out and they'll grow on and toughen up for winter and be ready for next year. Wallflowers can be hit in a cold wet winter but mostly they're OK.

I'd get on and scatter the annuals as well.

Never heard of them but if the price is good and you like the plants it's good. If they're expensive and you don't like the plants, it's bad

You can grow honeysuckle from seed but those named cultivars don't come true. It would still be a honeysuckle though
