Over the last week I have noticed this coming into flower. Only a couple of years ago I remember going on holiday to Dorset in August and seeing this plant come into flower there: so this is really early? Maybe a good thing as a source of income in a season of dearth, but what comes in August to maintain an income to the bees?
