There is a very imperious Robin who comes quite close to the house and peers through the windows.

Dove, I most certainly will leave well alone; spotted the nest about 5 mins before I posted. What amazes me is how fast the nest was built and filled.

Tomatoes on allotment?

Fruitcake, I can't see where you are in the U.K. Here in the Norfolk Fens I grow some toms outside and some inside, and then hope for a sunny warm summer.

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?

Good luck Mike Hope all goes well for you.

What have you learnt this year in the garden?

Posted: 12/06/2014 at 11:24

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
