Hi, Ma

Many thanks for that useful information, just what I was looking for....I'll print it off and take it with me. I think there may be some tired legs tomorrow night.

Hope you're keeping well.

I'm planning a visit tomorrow and I would be grateful for any tips on where to go what to camera will be near at hand and I plan is to stay for about 3 hours.

I'll be arriving by train and will have to depend on buses or taxis. 

Ta in anticipation. xx

Wild bird feeding

My own google reveals:

'The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 states that it is an offence to kill any bird - including pigeons - unless a licence is held, but section one allows exemption if an organisation or individual complies with general licence regulations.'

What is eating my Runner beans?

I've had this problem in the past and always put it down to birds pecking them off, mistaking them for green caterpillars.

Can I store Charlotte potatoes?

Posted: 11/07/2015 at 10:31

I've never tried to store 'Charlotte' as it's a second early.  (unless I'm wrong) a prerequisite for storage of any potato is that the skins need to be set and skins don't set on first & second earlies, hence why we scrape rather than peel them.

Having said that, Hostafan is an experienced gardener who is seldom wrong IMHO.
