Where to buy native plants/seeds?

Posted: 15/09/2015 at 22:59

I don't think any lavendars are UK natives.

I think you're right to go with some natives.Yes, any single flower is good for the bees and butterflies but what are the larvae going to eat? Butterfly and moth larvae will want the right food plants and they'll be native for the most part.

ID and renovation advice please

That will move OK. I'd cut it back and do it now so it gets established while the soil is warm, but it would be OK to do it in spring

I've never seen it reach those heights.

Plant ID please

What lighting conditions does wild garlic like?

Posted: 15/09/2015 at 20:35

My wld garlic is in very dry, total shade. They reproduce slowly there, I think they'd do better elsewhere

Geranium macrorrhizum is my most reliable dry shade plant
