yes, I've seen that pant before. Is this your plant emma? or something you think looks similar
Cerinthe, couldn't say which species but C. major purpurescens most common
I would use the top as cuttings before it falls over
SS is right re Hedge Woundwort.
especially as I posted a photo of this with Tulipa sprengeri somewhere. Here?
to upload a photo, make it smaller, the site can't cope with normal size pics but doesn't tell you when you try.
start with the camera icon over the typing box

slugs and hedgehogs are all part of nature's diversity. I think it's a mistake to pick one species to save above all others. The biggest threat to all of it is humans with the destruction of habitats and applications of chemicals to upset the balance.

It just sort of crept up on me, I can't remember the beginning. I only dug holes as a child in my parents' garden
We had a very dry spring as well but OK now. I have a huge garden and couldn't possibly water much of it so I don't water anything after I've watered it in. Rarely lose anything but I choose plants that can cope.
just enough to stop it drying too much for too long. You'll never need to water it again after this year

Don't be too diligent with the water, they look OK to me for new plantings and they don't do well in wet soil
