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.

Hi all really foggy this morning and very cold, I've just put some seed out for the escaped pheasants (they missed getting shot, at the pheasant shoot over the way ) and its VERY cold out there and white with frost. This is the kind of morning when you are pleased you don't have to turn out for work.

Hi all,

any ideas what this is?

If you were to buy yourself 3 plants for Christmas...

I would love a decent sized cloud pruned conifer, I'm trying to get one growing but it is taking forever.

any Camelias and azaleas, I'm on very alkaline soil and can only grow them in pots.
