any help for a ring barked tree? :-(

If the bark has gone all round the tree there's nothing you can do to save it, sorry

Those 2 little seed leaves are geranium

The trailing one isn't. What else have you sown?

Slugs don't always leave a visible trail and some slugs are very small so you don't see the trail easily

too late?

I should think you'll get some flowers, maybe not seed

Might be the one called Molly the Witch but she won't flower twice.

Do you know when this photo was taken? Molly flowered weeks ago

Moth trap fidget, a box with an overhead light. The moths are attracted and fall in then hide amongst the egg boxes in the bottom til we come and let them out. No damage to moth, they all fly off when released.

Some do sugar traps as not all moths come to light but I've never done than yet. 

Judging by the number of moths I saw in the headlight last night it's time for another trap.

I've got lots of Speckled Woods, more every year. Some Red Admirals and quite  lot of skippers which we don't often see. What I haven't seen are all the meadow brown.gate keeper, ringlets that I expect in the meadow. But it may be too early. I associated them with marjoram and that's not out yet.

The vipers bugloss is so full of bees and hoverflies there wouldn't be room for anything else
