30th June; Bramble. Leaves are good for caterpillar larvae, and of course they come with the promise of delicious blackberries later in the season. Larvae, Holiday Accommodation, Bramble, Blackberries, Caterpillar, 30th, Promise

29th June; Hosta. Hopeless if you have a problem with snails and slugs. As an organic gardener with an aversion to slug pellets, I find that the right position in the garden is the trick. These are growing in a thicket populated by birds, which seem to keep the snail population down. In more open areas of the garden they just get demolished.

25th June; Purple Toadflax. This self seeds with ease, so once you've got some you won't ever be short again, but I'm very fond of it. It's good for pollinators, has a long flowering season, sculptural, slightly silvery leaves and is great as a cut flower. Cut Flowers, Silvery, 25th, Ease, Seeds

23rd June - St John's Wort. Another shrub well valued for its medicinal properties, this self seeds like a weed, but makes a useful, albeit fairly unexciting, addition to the garden. The berries go well in flower arrangements later in the season. St John's, Shrubs, Weed, Flower Arrangements, Berries

21st June; Astrantia. Much loved by pollinators, beautiful in the borders or as a cut flower. Divides easily in the spring or autumn, and bushes out to form a good clump, this is another favourite garden flower of mine. And happy in our heavy clay soil, which is always a bonus.
