i planted some meadow seeds under my trampoline area last year, and this giant appeared too. anyone has an idea what it is called, please?

    Looks like sweet rocket, Hesperis matrionalis. Should be nicely scented especially later in the day/evening

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    @ nutcutlet, thanks for your response, but is it a friend or foe?

    A definite friend - there's also a white form - go out into the garden  on a warm evening and the air will be full of the most delicious scent - good for moths and butterflies image

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
