18.05.2014 I learned yesterday that when you see a bee on the ground that isn’t moving, it’s not necessarily dead, it’s probably just dead tired from carrying lots of pollen and needs re-energising. So if you mix a tiny bit of water with some sugar and let it drink it will give it the boost it needs to continue on its way. Bizarrely, this exact thing happened today! I found a knackered bee, mixed up some sugar water, gave it a drink and watched it guzzle and guzzle then suddenly come back to life. It was amazing! Thank you patrick, it was an excellent tip that i’ll never forget and will continue to pass on to others!
When you want to indulge in building a living wall for yourself, you want to pull out all stops. Each and every aspect that goes into building a beautiful garden needs to be just perfect for the result you want, especially the vertical gardening.
Dryadula phaetusa (Nymphalidae - Heliconiinae), is the sole member of its genus. It is a common and widespread species found from Mexico to Brazil and Bolivia. These butterflies are easily distinguished by its short antennae and its tiger striped pattern.
