Four swallows seen in Wilts and South Glos. Thrilling!

If only I had some photos to show you all! I have been watching a chaffinch collecting  dog hair, which I had combed from my golden retriever, in order to line her nest. She took so much in her beak that it appeared she had an enormous moustache!

Yes, I too would suggest layering. Also much more success with viticellas in general.

I am puzzled by the regular appearence of four robins on the bird table. This is March, and I would have thought by now they would have become territorial. I was expecting there to be just a pair, hopefully nesting in our garden. What do you all think?

I wonder what the general opinions are regarding the decision to allow garden gnomes at Chelsea. I was shocked, for I think they are hideous.

Such a delight to see a goldcrest suddenly hop near my feet, while I was waiting for a bus, near Bath.

I would very much appreciate any advice on varieties of sprouts. I am keen to grow ones that produce small or medium tight sprouts. Does anyone remember Peer Gynt?It was an F1 Hybrid, but sadly no longer available. It was a superb variety.

I would love to learn of any gardeners who have had experience of growing vegetables on the hot bed system. There was an article in the Daily Telegraph last weekend on this subject, that set me thinking it may well be a good idea.

Make sure you grow them on a mound of soil, that is so the roots are lower than the centre of the plant. As one would with asparagus. A beautiful plant.

An interesting thought has occurred to me since we have had such a lot of snow the last few days. Those of us who regularly feed the garden birds will have noted a vast increase in the numbers attending the bird tables and feeders. Thinking of the forthcoming RSPB Bird Count, and seeing the great influx of chaffinches for instance, I assume the final count could be rather misleading.
