Unidentified bee

Posted: 11/04/2015 at 10:27

Hi, I have seen what I believe is a bee in the garden.  Looking down at it, It is dark brown in colour, part of it's body is soft (fur looking) but the rear end of it is hard shell like a beetle.  It is flying and collecting pollen with one long antenna from the front of it's head.  Sorry no picture - can anyone help identify this please.

Shasta Daisy query

Posted: 08/07/2014 at 14:37

 


 I bought these plants as Shasta Daisies, expecting them to grow to around 3ft tall, however these are now just over 5ft - can anyone tell me why this is.  I have another plant in the garden which should be the same which has only grown to around 2ft high, so not sure why there is such a difference.  Thank you.
