Epsom in surrey, I've already got a line of Morello cherry trained as fans along a stretch of the same wall that are growing really well, wondered if pears might also like this spot?

Cost of bird food

Posted: 30/01/2014 at 21:47

Some bird foods really are quite expensive although some highstreet pet stores and retail outlets do have some real bargains. At first i thought they would be really poor quality but the birds seem to love the wide variety of suet feeders, fat balls and different seed mixes and are always back for more.

I have managed to find 1kg of bird seed ranging from general mix at 80p to sunflower hearts at £1.50

or 30 fat balls for £4

or suet block for £1

Keep searching and you will always find a steal

Compost accelerator

I wouldnt personally recommend using any kind of accelerator, i feel they dont have as much of an effect on your rate of compost production as you would get by making sure you put the right things into it, make sure to put plenty of plant material in there, nettles are fantastic, and get your compost completely naturally - dont waste your money on an unnecessary accessory.

If its the interesting foliage and shape your after i have a smaller variety Rhus typhina 'Tigers Eyes' which is just as beautiful and is a great feature in a large barrel or planter. Mine has been growing successfully for several years now and is a striking feature in the garden. Not much in the way of pruning is needed  and the roots are kept contained

Delphinium still producing buds

Posted: 24/10/2013 at 14:06

Hope you can help,

i have a white delphinium growing in one of my borders, after a brilliant year for flowers it is still going, there are full spikes of fresh buds still appearing, should i cut these off to stop them flowering before the frosts start setting in or should i leave them until they die down naturally?
