Where have the birds gone!!!

I'm re-filling the sunflower heart container nearly every day and the niger seed feeder every 2 days. No starlings, so the fat balls aren't being eaten, except a little by a robin.

 A weird and wonderful Amarylis that I was given for Christmas. It produces huge drops of sticky nectar.

I made my own staging using pressure treated timber from Wickes, 2 years ago; it cost me about £43 to make an 8' length with lower shelf also. If you are interested I could post a pic. Took me one afternoon to make.

Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 28/02/2014 at 21:33

If May won't work, June will do perhaps. When I started my garden, it was in early July 2001; it still worked for that season

Let's keep planting and taking cuttings.

Give my love to the people on the Somerset message board Rosie; the reason I came up with this idea was that I know how utterly desperate I would feel if my garden was destroyed. Please assure them that though our efforts may be clumsy, we will try to provide them with a large selection of plants in the early summer or when their gardens are ready to accept them

I don't think it's growing habit is quite like a Lychnis Coronaria...I think they are more compact at that height. I would go with stachys of some sort.

Talkback: How to grow celeriac

Dove, I've been growing celery for the last couple of years and found the flavour of home grown almost eye-wateringly strong, but v. useful in cooking. I just don't have the space for both veg so growing celeriac gives me, I hope, the best of both worlds.

Talkback: How to grow celeriac

I'm growing celeriac for the first time this year as I love making celeriac remoulade. Seeing the photos in the 'how to do it' article makes me wonder; can one eat the leaves also as if it were celery?
