We have one called Yellow Bird. Fairly new plant, but so far it has done well.

Sadly, yes, they will eat the flower buds, even below ground level.

That's the one I use. I went and looked at the bottle but never got round to re-posting.

Alpine show in Loughborough on Saturday .

Lighting in the Hall is Sodium flare so makes the flower colours hard to capture.

Our species Tulips are flowering. The badger ate all the others though, so none for us this year.

I use a Winter Wash based on Horticultural soft soap. Cannot remember the name . It seems to be on sale almost everywhere.

Friend or foe?

Looks very much like Geranium robertianum, aka Herb Robert.  It is a very pretty native wild flower which can become a bit of a seed weed if happy.

Ever been had ??

That is about the normal price for a G. Blewberry Tart, There were some on sale yesterday at the Loughborough AGS show, a single bulb in a pot for £10.

Sorry, but had you ain't been.

Nice to see the Bumble bees getting out in the sun.

Something's been eating my bulbs

Not easily, no. There are scented compounds sold to water on to keep vermin away, but I have never used them so no recommendations to make.
