I have a mixture which were free on gardening magazines and lots of old seeds from previous years. My last purchases were from Marshalls and Terwins. Terwins because they are local to where I live in Suffolk.
Probably spelled incorrectly but Aqualegia, they are looking great at the moment and the bees are busy in them.
I would have thought a proper cloche rather than fleece so the soil can actually warm for at least 2 weeks before sowing. It has been exceptionally cold though and I am sowing into the greenhouse at the moment toplant out later.
There is also the risk of spreading disease into otherwise clean ponds.
Arrange to go to a local nature reserve, many now have pond dipping facilites and a warden who would be more than happy to help with ID.
Blackbird and Collared Dove have been busy in our garden coolecting dry grass and fine twigs.
Sadly no picture but a Happy Christmas to all of you frm a wet Suffolk. All the best for 2013, may the veggies be with you.
An owl will likely have the same effect as the Sparrowhawk in terms of scaring. You can by cages to put your feeders inside. The birds will get used to feeding inside them and the Sparrowhawk will not be able to pluck them off the feeders. You can also position canes around your feeders but it will not look so pretty.
My first visit this year also. Enjoyed it but not to do evey year. A bit too much tatt there and puzzled as to how a company selling beds qualifies to exhibit. Certainly not edible and the rain would not do them much good if you put one in the garden.
Not amillion miles away jean. Between Bury St Edmunds and Diss
Ivy leaved Toadflax is a pretty native to have in a wall.
