The eggs are smaller than my thumb nail.

Sadly there is no bird sitting on the eggs; don't know enough about this to figure out if nest is abandoned.

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

I taught myself how to do green/soft cuttings for the flooded gardens appeal; then went to youtube and watched some videos on it and blow me down, I was doing it right! My next challenge will be to take some hardwood cuttings, which will take much longer to develop. I also want to have a go at 'Tufa' - fake stone containers when I have the time.

But mostly I have learnt how incredibly generous the forum members have been, sowing and growing plants for Somerset gardens and looking out for members who have been unwell

I find that once a delphinium is established, the slugs and snails don't bother it.

Maureen, I think it is something about 'Blooms' but I could be wrong; it is mentioned somewhere in this thread or the other one; but that could be a long trawl

Perhaps just look at all Rosie31's posts?

FLAG is definitely the Charity that collects and distributes plants.
