Hi to you all and a good 2013 to you, ok I am moving house soon and have a huge garden which will need a gardener, but it has just me and my husband, so we thought maybe make a grass pathway which we can mow and have wild flowers, like poppies,whit daisy and cornflowers either side of the path to form a pretty wild like garden, now how do we create this, do we use seeds, or plugs for the easiest and quickest result?????

i have spoken to my neighbour and told him its illegal to destroy nests....he said "its my property and therefore i can do what i like" i wouldnt mind but he has a huge avery in his garden!!!! by the way he has a weaver bird which was in the avery for months making beautiful nests which looked like delicate knitted pots, he has now put him in a cage because he was chasing the finches, this bird is now alone and so sad!! argh im so angry with him, he just dont care!!!!!

we love swifts too, but we have a neighbour who blasts their beautiful nests off his house with a electric jet wash, he waits u til they are fully built then does this awful thing, how cruel can you be!!
