Oh, Kate I'm disappointed now. Fritillaries do seem to need special conditions though so I can only try.
Geoff, aren't chickens horrible when they catch something alive? One runs arround with it dangling out of it's mouth with the others chasing it. Mine caught a toad and I'm sure they couldn't have ate it. Supposed to taste awful and are poisonous. I managed to rescue the toad but I don't know if it survived, didn't look too happy.
I took down and emptied out a window box this morning. It was full of vine weevil grubs. I'm sure I gave it a dose of provado earlier but must need a couple of doses. Chickens were grateful for the feast.
