I do not wish to be rude or say the wrong thing, but I often wonder where some people get the time from to contribute to this forum so often. Some names pop up on such a regular basis one wonders if they ever do any work. Is it good for someone to have the computer on quite so often?.

Feeding birds.

I am most concerned having just read about the fat balls so many of us hang up for our garden birds. It was said that many of these are low in fat, and include fillers like sand, sawdust, and even glue. Oh dear, I am shocked and upset. How can we be expected to know such things? I guess there are many makes. and indeed shops selling bird food. No doubt a paying game, as so many of us are keen to do our best for our lovely garden birds at this time of year. What can we do?

Does anyone have knowledge or thoughts on feeding fat to garden birds. I am particularly thinking of the fat  which has been used for cooking a meat joint. I hasten to add , this would be rendered many times so that all impurities have been thrown away.

building houses on green belt land

It is a wonder the government do not cover the whole country in concrete. Not enough people care for the countryside. Breaks my heart to see our glorious farm land disappear  at such an alarming rate.

Amazed to be finding so many caterpillars on my sprouts. This is November, not the usual time for them, in the spring.

So very successful with using the previous years runner bean compost as base for carrot bed, topped with JI no 2 compost.

What peas are the best

Best variety? Hurst Greenshaft, I would say, without a doubt. Does anyone know of a Mangetout variety that is less than 6ft tall?

Has anyone managed to keep this oh such a superb plant through recent winters?. It appears to be quite hardy if planted in the spring, so as to allow the roots to penetrate deep. I haven't seen it awhile!

What's wrong with my onions

Posted: 22/07/2014 at 15:11

I feel pretty sure Yorkshiremans problem is the long dry spell. Onions are shallow rooting and have suffered this year. My large onion bed have all wilted in quite a different way to the natural autumn gradual  ripening we are used to. They look in a sad state.
