    Gardeners' World This Evening, BBC 2. Different to Usual.


    6 Not allowed!
    Gardeners' World was completely all about attracting insects in to your garden. No formal or vegetable stuff at all. Really interesting and informative. Will give you food for thought if you could give it a watch, no matter how small (if your lucky enough to have one) your garden may be.
    We can all do a little bit, making a big bit!

      I watch every episode, I can’t wait to see this special on iplayer.

      After quite a bit of planting in our front and back gardens in the last couple of years, virtually everything done for pollinators, the results are amazing just now. A wide array of bees, hover-flies and the odd butterfly, the sound of the bees is very special.

      The plant stars - Borage, Vipers Bugloss, Stachys, Pulmonaria, 2 types of Lavender, Nepeta, Salvia.

      So many people are now interested in doing something.

      Ive got two hebes in full bloom, several lavenders, and hollyhocks all smothered in bees of various kinds, hover flies and butterflies.
      I must watch this on IPlayer.

      I grow a wide range of fruit and vegetables up my allotment, they already attract a wide range of insects and molluscs. so, I'm doing my bit.
      I had run 17 miles from Grayshades before the school leopard caught me.....

      Borage doesn't seem to be optional in my garden. It grows where it likes, and it seems to like it everywhere.
      England are still the only team to have won the World Cup wearing red shirts.

      Really interesting, we are going to seed half our lawn with wild seed.... it will also save us mowing it. ps it’s only 40 foot square.

      Why would you want to attract molluscs to your fruit and veg?

      I don't think vegster wants to - he probably has the same issue as me that he has no choice. I have less in my garden now thanks to my chickens but they bring a whole load of other problems !

      I don't want them, but I'm stuck with them.
