Just reading that its short-lived, oh well.

My dad's had wallflowers for donkeys years and done nothing with them but they come up every year!

Sorry Pottie Pam I don't look on the forum very often when I haven't anything current going on!

Yours is similar, I'd say it was a bush-cricket, but they all look so much alike.

Thanks Daintiness - thats it!  Checked with the NHM website and it exactly fits the Southern oak bush-cricket.  When you turn it upside-down you can see where its back legs would have been.

Thanks again all.

Tomato plants in greenhouse

Correct bigolob and Peter12.

My tomatoes are the best ever (3 years of trying) and I was away at the start of the heatwave worrying if they would all be dead when I got back.  But NO! - even the ones outside the small growhouse have survived and flourished.  I took off all unnecessary foliage so the goodness went straight to the flowers-cum-fruits and pinched out the tops.  I did practically drown them before I went away though.......
