Help for flooded gardens

Suburb, that got me thinking again. Something that looks nice and can stay in its pot all summer if required, but can go in the garden when it's ready. I'll do a few things like that.

Green caterpillars

I have to preserve my caterpillars, I just redirect them. I need to see all the moths and butterflies next year. I wonder when these pupate.

I'm not far from you I think, near Peterborough


Help for flooded gardens

I'm wondering what to grow. Hardy perennials are what I do best. I'm a dead loss at veg, they need too much looking after (maybe that translates as 'I'm totally ignorant re veg'). But someone will have lost a garden full of perennials won't they?

I've just had a look at my Iris unguicularis. Lots of healthy looking leaves, where are my flowers? I wonder if it's anything to do with being walked on and the Sadolins wood treatment it got last summer.

No, I didn't go outside, I can see from a window

all the dogs/cats/foxes love anything of animal origin. My neighbour's dog used to come over and eat from bags of 6X chicken manure.

Doubt it, in former times there were no sewerage systems in the sticks and it all went back on the garden.

It as the noisiest night so far here as well, nothing else has come close. It's still at it now though maybe not as bad. I was going to a plants meeting this afternoon but when I thought of all the trees looming over the roads on the way I changed my mind.

Green caterpillars

I found a beauty inside one of my Helleborus niger flowers. As it's the first time I've ever got these to re-flower I moved the caterpillar to a H. orientalis flower, I felt I could spare one of those. I should have taken its photo and IDd it but I didn't

I'd pot it up and take it with you.

You can move paeonies but you'll have other things to do if you're moving and it's bound to be in the middle of a drought or freezing when the time comes.

They are said to not like being moved but a discussion on the forum last year showed that many of us had done so successfully. Plants are quite forgiving most of the time. 

I'd pot it up and, as suggested, try and get it out intact. Leave it in the pot til the roots have filled it and it will come out intact.
