Once the weeds are gone patio magic is great for cleaning paved areas i use a sprayer and make sure each slab is soaked and gradually it cleans and stops green algae.

Why are blackbirds digging the garden

my bird feeders are hung on a dead maple  that i planted in a pot many years ago sadly it died on me last year,  so i trimmed the branches and now  its my bird feeding station, it has a slate mulch and the blackbirds constantly chuck it on the ground.

Thanks everyone, i have ordered brookside and magnificum for myself and sweet Heidy for my daughter as she is in the process of buying a new home with a garden and her lovely dog is called Heidi. I didn't realise there were so many varieties i have choosen ones that flower the longest and attract insects,
