Chased by bee

no, it didn't, it's just a bee. It just feels like that when one is checking you out.

Don't take any notice, you won't be stung if you leave it alone.

L nitida is a huge plant, you'd be forever reducing it.

I hate the use of chemicals, including those considered 'not really' chemicals, like salt and vinegar.

Using them displays a self-centred, short-sighted attitude to other living creatures, ecosystems and our future

cut them back very hard in late winter, just a few inches above the ground,

Might be willow from Peru Hosta. Did a google and came up with an aquatic plant related to Oenotheras.

look at Asclepias, common names are a minefield. Don't know which one the Monarch eats. Chiltern seeds used to do several species

Are there Monarchs on the loose in your area? whatever you grow they need to be out there to find it
