Hi, last year just one verb bon came up in my garden rather late. I dug it up at end of season and potted it up and placed in greenhouse its now about 2"  will plant it out soon. Might do same this year.  Also sewn some seed but only at 2 leaf stage at moment  will plant them out in summer  if it ever arrives!

I have had honesty for a few years it's good for butterflys especially orange tip.

Last year i bought some new seed as mine are all purple but sadly still only have one white plant lets hope next year will bring me more white ones

best kind of bird feeder?

Posted: 05/05/2013 at 09:49

Jess i use this type from Wilkinsons 

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/23087.jpg?width=572&height=350&mode=max

 I only fill half way with mixed seed in one and sunflower hearts in the other

when almost empty i clean out and refill. In the past i bought hanging horn suet feeders made by guardman from my local garden centre theese were loved by the birds in my garden especially the blue tits. sadly they no longer stock them.I have a coconut suet feeder at the moment but they don't seem interested in it.Just looking on line for the guardman horns.
