I bought some reduced ones in a GC sale last year. They do need sunlight to charge the battery but look lovely at night laced through a tree . When it's windy, they dance about!  

More aliens for id please.....

Not comfrey but an annual echium called blue bedder. It looks very similar to the tall one but behaves as an annual. Beloved by bees of all varieties. And yes, borage. Freeze the flowers in ice cubes!

Apologies for repeating this question - I couldn't find it on my 'Followed Threads' bit. I thought I'd hit the wring button.

Thank you for the advice. I'll give it a go - desperately need the space for my leeks!

I would like to dig up and store my Charlotte potatoes. Will they be ok in sacks or will they go soft? A neighbour says not to store. Any advice welcome!

The foliage on my Charlotte potatoes is now all floppy. Can I dig them up and store them in sacks or are they likely to go soft?

I love going to the theatre - as much as possible. And cooking.

It has rained a little - with many days in between showers.

At the end of my road there is a pea field. It has not been watered, there is no stream and the ground is not improved much by the farmer. So how do the peas grow to be fat and juicy - I know 'cos did a quality control test...

I spend ages watering my peas and I wonder if it's worth it! Any thoughts anyone?

I saw this on my beech hedge last week.. I think it is to do with aphids and honeydew. It is a sticky liquid secreted by aphids and bees seem to love it. Were there aphids on your pear leaves?
