growing wildflowers for bees and butterflies

Posted: 14/08/2013 at 09:20

Good morning ffb. Thank you. I made a discovery today, something I hadn't noticed before. Black doesn't mean ripe for Viper's Bugloss seed. As the flower spike turns brown the seeds go beigy-brown. That's ripe. It explains why I couldn't remove the black ones. I'll be harvesting any day now, just waiting for a few more to mature

I feel everyone should take responsibility for their own actions. If that action is acquiring a cat they should think about the effect it has on other people and the balance of nature.

When the pots get really full of roots it's hard for the plant to take up enough water to see it through a day.

This is the one I've got. It's called Bittersweet in my very old wildflower book.

Everyone has their opinion on the poisons subject and everyone is entitled to that opinion. If it's tiresome to defend one's own opinion then don't do it.
