A Valerian and the remains of an Allium on a hot summer's day, Valerian, a wild flower in the UK, and considered by some a weed, attracts Butterflies and other pollinators to your garden. Valerian can spread itself quite freely and the seeds heads should be cut off to prevent it. I have a 4 year plant in my garden at the front, I now see many Valerian's in other people's gardens now. I am also forever plucking small plants out of the flower beds, however it is worth it due to the butterflies that appear in the garden.
My name is Jonathan and I enjoy working in my garden in my spare time. I am no professional, just an amateur. My second love is photography, shooting the flowers in my garden and of course sharing them with people who share my passions.
