In the garden today

It was fantastic to see this on moth today. Commonly, it is found only in the South of the country on sand dunes and heathland. Vipers buglos is a British native plant of coastal sand dunes. We collected seed down at Slapton Sands some years ago and it thrives on gravel and light sandy soil as a biannual. It is vital to create diversity in the garden to attract different pollinators; their varied mouth parts reach different shaped flowers.
