Wildlife Herbaceous Border at LWT Wildlife Gardening Centre
Beddington Park Herbaceous Border
Went to the London Wildlife Trust Wildlife Gardening Centre today for a bit of inspiration for the obs wildlife garden. Plenty of insects on Verbenas, Tansy, Corncockles, Knapweed, Golden Rods, Agrimony, Scabious, Orpines, Sedums, Lemon Balms and Mints so I'll be bringing in some of them. However might mix it up a bit with some more striking herbaceous plants like in Beddington Park to get the best of both worlds.
Today's featured pan species Beddington lifer is Soapwort. Also today Sloe Shieldbug and on the moth front Purple and Gold pyralid sp, Uncertain and recently also had Shuttle-shaped Dart.
