Fairy Ring

Thanks Wonky.

I was just wondering whether to keep quiet or put in a word for the fairies and the natural world in general.

Fungi are part of life. We need to get away from killing everything that doesn't immediately please us.

I think astrantia seedlings have a more angular look to them.

They look like conitum to me Vic.

I intended to ask you for some of those Lyn, but I never go round to it

Hi Daintiness, I'll have a proper look tomorrow. They've got quite a lot of rotting bits and I think maybe a coppicing would be a good move. But really they've become far too shaded by faster growing trees in the last few years and may not make it

Never use insecticides

They kill everything and destroy what little balance the average garden achieves with all those sprays used indiscriminately at the first sign of an insect

Hibiscus leaves have white this a problem?

Caterpillars  have specific food plants, they won't eat everything. They have a season as well, no one caterpillar species won't be around for long. nip out the tops of the fuchsias, they'll come back. It's not in the interest of any animal to kill its food plant. What would they do next year?
