I took delivery of a nest box full of tree bees yesterday. Rescued from somewhere they weren't loved. 

They seem to be settling in nicely


How to remove Rye grass from my turf

Is rye grass bad? There is nothing that will kill one grass without killing all the others. How do you know which ones are rye grass, they don't usually get to form flower heads in a lawn.

You can tell I'm not a Lawn with a capital L person. I have grass

No it's not honey fungus. Most fungi are at least harmless, mostly beneficial.

Looks lke a persicaria of some sort

The thing with the tassels and the small grassy one in the foreground are Carex pendula. This can be rather invasive and hard to dig up so don't let it seed around too much. It's lovely for a large wild garden like mine but not fit for polite company

Have I got an orchid???

Stratification help !

I think the variation intemperature outside in winter is better than the constant just above freezing in the fridge. This is based on my experience nothing scientific. That way you don't need to decide how long to leave them either. I usually bring mine into the cold GH towards the end of winter so I can keep an eye on them. I like them in there once they've germinated so they don't get eaten or weather damaged so it's best to have them in there before they germinate
