Looking around the allotments there are so many rows of veg with the promise of tastey sweetcorn and delicious tomatoes. But, for me, the best thing about having an allotment is growing flowers.
Soon, all those veg will probably be attacked by all sorts of nasties - blackfly, carrot root fly, blight, pea moth....
So, far the only insects visiting my flowers are bees and butterflies. Beautiful flowers and bumblebees - what's not to like.
