Best tall plant to attract dragonflies?

Posted: 06/04/2015 at 13:54

I think plants growing out from the water is most important, what they are is irrelevant as Simon says. Dragonflies are carnivores not plant eaters

Weed (?) identification - when they are seedlings

I don't think that's rosebay willowherb, but it is a willowherb

I think if you don't plant them they'll die. They might need cold to flower but they need soil to live

murky pond after spawning

When the froglets emerge (not yet) they'll need to leave the pond area, not be stranded on a ledge. Adults can jump up but tiny ones can't. Is there a route out that can be walked by something small?

I'd sow them outside, now, where you want them to grow. Autumn would have been better, some of them might need a cold spell to trigger germination.

Thanks Ceres, looking at the photos on line I think that's probably it.

Could be Chrissie, I'll check my records to see if that one appears anywhere.

Fishy, I wish it were true but the more plants I know the more odd ones I acquire.

Not really Hollie. When it was just a rosette of leaves it was very like sweet rocket to look at.

Hi Hollie hock. It's coming up to flower and I'll post another photo when it gets there.

A corydalis I've forgotten the name of


a violet I never knew the name of, it's quite a yellowish cream, darker than the photo shows

and something unidentified and I can't remember where the seeds came from but it may have been the seed swap
