What a fragrant idea

Big garden bird watch

Posted: 24/01/2014 at 16:57

I'm doing the bird count again this year, but am getting a bit fed up with both snail mail and emails from RSPB, which mainly seem aimed at me buying overpriced bird feeders and food. If they are so desperate for cash, why are they posting me stuff when they have my email address? Also they rang me asking if I wanted to join for £6.00 per month. When I said 'you must be joking', the price immediately dropped to £3.00 per month!

Best way to i.d this plant?

Any that you had last summer will have self seeded. They can be invasive; one small bed I have I could just leave it year in, year out and it would always have them. I have to pull them out ruthlessly to fit the sweet peas in.

I grew them one year, but missed the 'nano-second' when they were the right size. Too big and sprawling for my veg bed.

I was given a small, but quite old walnut tree in a pot last summer. I have potted it on to a larger pot. I won't know if it has survived until the spring when hopefully there will be new leaves. Am hoping to make it a 'standard' style tree.

Just had my newsletter from Garden Organic and they commented on old seeds;

Parsnips only last one year. For everything else, sprinkle a few on to damp kitchen paper and see if they germinate Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
