My birthday yesterday, had to rush up to my mother in law 200 miles away so didn't have a birthday.

no cards, no presies nothing, but pleased to find out my mother in law is going to be ok.

my OH said we would celebrate today but that just isn't the same. Oh well there's always next year.

I think I read somewhere not to use around acid loving plants ( i.e. Camellias, some heathers, acers etc)

wood ash is alkaline so acid plants will not like it, good where you are going to plant brassicas though.

I've tried this Dove and yes  it was funny but I felt sorry for the squirrel putting in all that effort for my enjoyment , so we will see if the basket works even for a short time.

Im already worrying about what if the squirrel gets stuck trying to get through the wire.

Thanks Dove, if that's the case in the summer I can always put some small holed net on top of the basket.

Anybody else got a problem with squirrels on the bird feeders?

I think I've cracked it !!

i put this up a week ago and the squirrels haven't managed to find a way around it as yet.

one upside down wire hanging basket secured on the feeder with wire, easy why didn't I think of this before?

Hope this is helpful to any one who is plagued with squirrels.
