Butterfly sightings 2014

Hi jack, that's an orange tip.

The yellow ones are male Brimstones

Brown and speckly could have been a Speckled wood, I haven't seen one of those or an orange tip this year.

That's good, the worst is a bog in winter and concrete in summer.

Agapanthus versus Dandelion

If you use glyphosate and keep it off the agapanthus you'll be OK. Mine has Campanula trachelium in it. I shall have to do something similar though I may use a paintbrush and the gel version of glyphosate

What is this Plant?

Could be Phlomis russelliana. Try planting it out, I've never had one come to flower in a pot. They grow very quickly and run out of steam before they flower.

It must be possible to flower them in pots though, GCs must do it

Hi Jacqui, is it always wet or does it dry out in summer? and is it really wet like a bog?

If it's always damp, not a bog, you get more choice. Some of the ferns would go really well, some of those that need more moisture. Primroses, pulmonarias, astilbes and ligularia if it's not too dark.
