PRIMROSE - I can't live without you, Early youth, Young love
POLYANTHUS - Pride of riches
I like to have some primroses or polyanthus in pots at this time of year, and I am not alone, the woodlice do too!
This year I opted for a mixed tray of white and a pink/orange colour, and I have made an interesting observation. The white flowers have been untouched and the pink/orange have been nibbled to death! Does this mean woodlice are repelled at the sight of white? I need to do more investigation? Has anyone else noticed this?
Great feast for the woodlice community in my garden, hundreds of them! Although extremely annoying in this instance, I really don't think woodlice do too much harm otherwise, so I will continue to invite them into my garden as a friend!
