Coriander

I let my coriander flower and the wild life love it!  I find it very pretty too. I've noticed that herbs really attract a lot of wildlife to the garden.

If anyone knows that this bug is on it I would be pleased to know as I can't seem to find it in my books or on the internet. I thought it might be an enemy but he is just after nectar it seems.

    I've literally just bought some "confetti coriander to let it flower as I saw it at Wisley and it looked so pretty.  I can't wait to sow it now  :#

    Sorry I don't know what your little bug buddy is called though  :dizzy:

    Nice Foxglove  :).  If you leave them to go to seed they should self seed and will come up next year. I actually started mine from a supermarket culinary herb pot and divided it in two  planted it up and it quickly grew away.

    Im in the middle of drying a lot of herbs from the garden for my own use. At the moment the basement smells of Dill.

    That sounds divine and yummy! 
    What a good idea about the supermarket ones, i might do that too to have even more as i'm so impatient  :dizzy:

    I have chives and i love their little pinky mauve pom pom flowers so I just leave them to do their thing.
