Posted: 01/07/2014 at 20:50

Bracken at the top

I think Hazel next, A pic of the bark would confirm (or not)

In the last pic, is that a child or adult hand. Just trying to get scale. And pic of the bark and twigs would help

You're not worrying too much MM

We should all worry a bit more and make a big effort to encourage the insects and reduce the insecticides

Can you help identify these plants please?

Any tome AmandaBen, we like a challenge

It's the larvae that need specific food plants.

Nectar gatherers like anything with a good supply of nectar

Oh yes. They do as they please,  we can't influence them.

I'm happy with what turns up

That's very satisfying WG. I'm sure more will turn up soon. Along with the butterflies.

Today for the first time in years I saw small tortoiseshell investigating the nettles.

They're along our boundary and  so much at risk from the farmer and his killing sprays

Can you help identify these plants please?

I think you're right fidget, just wasn't sure what I was looking at but I think they are baby berries

Can you help identify these plants please?

I can't get focussed on the flowers/seeds/berries AmandaBen

Ok, camera out

those flowers or whatever. The shape of the whole bush. The trunk/branches. some more leaves

powdery mildew on polemonium

Posted: 01/07/2014 at 16:21

Some things are very prone to mildew and polemonium is one of them.

Spores are everywhere, don't worry about the secateurs. As Edd says it doesn't need water. In fact I associated with very dry conditions.

I stopped growing the blue ones because they always looked so bad. The yellow species don't seem to suffer
