Also make sure you don't buy insecticides containing the relevant damaging chemicals.

Advice for next year.  Start them off in modules before you plant them out.  The birds pull them out by the brown tops, but probably won't when they have a green shoot and good roots.

I wasn't getting at you; you know how to attract wildlife, but there are many people who don't get the connection.

Which of these forums was it that had a post asking what to do about a blackthorn hedge attracting bees and other insects, and how to get rid of it?  Because it was annoying !!

Sadly, you answer the question of the decline of bats in your first post.

The more people who renovate barns and old houses, the fewer places there are for bats, swifts and swallows and house martins.

Please leave room under the barge boards and suchlike so that the bats have somewhere to roost.  Winter roosts are often quite different from summer roosts.  Bats mainly use space in the roof for their breeding roosts.  Don't stop them getting in!

Have you not a US forum to ask this question on?  I don't think we have it in the UK.

I think if you remove the flowers you will have to start again with new seed.  They certainly will not repeat flower if you remove the flowers now.

I'm not really sure if they are bienniel or perenniel.  Plant them out as they are.

It will be a weak plant as it hasn't sufficient chlorophyll.

Mummy Muddy Paws, I suspect Italophile wanted to make ink-soaked pellets to send across the room with the help of his ruler!
