Are you asking if it's Ok to water the veg with water from the pond?

Wouldn't that empty the pond?

nicotiana mutabilis

Posted: 20/06/2014 at 20:41

Perennial then. I did wonder if they might be, so many nicotiana species are. My Nicotiana affinis overwintered this year, that's a first. N, sylvestris often overwinters but is later to flower than seed raised.

I didn't get round to getting seed of mutabilis. I'll have to remember next year.

Chicky dropped in en route from down south to the peaks KEF

There should be a group photo on artjak's camera. We got a waiting bus driver to take it. I think artjak has a busy weekend so we might have to wait til Monday

Papaver somniferum seed

They keep them seperate from other colours Topbird to keep the strain but they do all tend to seed back to the single wild form over the years

Spider ID please

spiders have 8 but they can lose some.


Nasty seed ID please

There are quite a few plants that distribute their seeds like that. Geum urbanum for one. That could be the geum but hard to tell.

Another good one to distribute that way is goosegrass/cleavers/sticky willies. Little round seeds. We had a cat that used to pick those up then try to get upstairs and remove them in a leisurely fashion on our bed

Hypericum and ants

Posted: 20/06/2014 at 18:49

The ants are more likely to be aiming for aphids, there are carnivores. You can wash the aphids off, that will sort them out but I just let them get on with it.

Glass of wine essential BB. I've got one

Great day and lovely to meet more of our excellent forumites. Thank you all.

I had elderflower and pear sorbet, very nice if a little sweet for my taste.

I managed to avoid buying anything in the GC though I have fidgets gifts
