2 butterflies evicted from the greenhouse. I hope they weren't laying eggs.

Brown aphids have appeared in the greenhouse. No Ladybirds anywhere, so I've been squishing the aphids hoping Ladybirds do appear.

But still no sign, so I've just used a bio sticky spray to stop them moving about.

Trimmed the grapevine again to allow the grapes to ripen faster. Quite a few good bunches again this year.

Trimmed the lavender hedge and got the waste into the green bin about a minute before the binmen arrived.

I also planted-out the most difficult plant I have ever grown from seed, a type of Campanula. Very slow to germinate from dust-like seeds that took forever to increase in size.
