Re: Butterflies everywhere

Just seen a butterfly i have never seen before, could be a holly blue but i have never seen one of those either, it was about just over half the size of a cabbage white with a dark patch on the inside of the wing 2/3mm deep along the outer edge the rest of it was pale blue. Any comments anyone?

Re: Feed your wormery

don,t really need a wormery we have a regular supply of manure from a local stable and within 6months it,s nearly 50% worms,nearly everyone on the allotment is pleased with it and it,s free.
