Mothers Day present

Posted: Yesterday at 21:48

Think I'd pot them on this week so they have individual pots - start getting them used to being outside - at first just during the day and bring them in at night.  

Then when the temps have warmed up and we're not getting any more frosts (mid - end of May depending on where you are) then they can be planted out in the garden

new bird box

Posted: Yesterday at 20:23

When we first put our nestbox up the bluetits selected it, and them carried out some minor alterations, pecking away at the hole to widen it just very slightly.

Then we noticed that the nest building and egg laying etc seems to take place in the very early morning - now that our bluetits are regular users of our nestbox we notice when the male is singing from the tree above the box, and presume that Mrs B Tit is sitting on the eggs - it's not until the eggs hatch that we notice comings and goings with aphids etc - and that seems to go on from early dawn to dusk. 

what is this pest?

Tree Peony Seedlings

I would pot them up and lavish them with love and care; even if they're just the same as the parent they'll be worth having or giving to your friends  - I'm sure some of us would queue up for one  

Nutcutlet will know more about tree peonies - hopefully she'll see this post .....
