I know Pansyface - probably a bit of overkill   but we're so excited to have frogspawn in this relatively new pond and when I lived in the country I've seen spawn killed by a sharp frost.

I know we're nearer to the city and this garden is quite sheltered but ...

Pat - they're good parents, they sit very tight except for when they swap shifts

Mushrooms in store bought compost

Posted: 16/04/2016 at 14:19

The mushrooms are just breaking down the organic matter in the compost to make it available to the plants.  They won't make the plants dangerous or unpalatable to your cockatiel. 

However, if your pet has free access to the tub where the plants are growing I'd remove the mushrooms as they appear, just to make sure he/she doesn't eat them as the mushrooms themselves may not be good for him.

I agree with B3 - you need large containers or troughs.

On the brighter side, you don't need trellis - ivy will cling to the wall without any help.
