Freezing here in Bournemouth, we have had a dusting of snow but that wind is just bitter. I did dash out to check the greenhouse and feed the birds, didn't stay out there long.

Birds nesting

Posted: 07/03/2013 at 18:02

I've got quite a few Blue Tits in my garden and I have seen them checking out the nesting box. I hang a fat ball feeder out stuffed with some of the fluff from my tumble drier so the birds can use it for building their nests, I've done this every year.

box hedge health issue

Posted: 28/02/2013 at 17:51

Box can suffer from Box Blight which attacks the leaves and the stems. resulting in bare patches and die back. It causes the leaves to go brown and fall off. You could always isolate your plants to make sure they are free of infection before you plant them out. If disease does occure it is best to remove and destroy infected plants. Do hope yours are ok.

Talkback: Garden seating areas

Posted: 26/02/2013 at 18:29
I've got two seats in my back garden. One I have had for a long time and is nice and secluded and the other one, my husband got it at a car boot sale, it looks lovely outside my back door just where the sun shines. Even this early in the year I have sat out there in the winter sunshine with a cup of tea thinking of all the gardening jobs I will have to do.
