Who's visiting your bird feeders?

Posted: 15/01/2017 at 15:14

Fairy  We had a slight frost and sleet earlier, now it's just cold and damp. 


There are still loads of blackbirds out there, and a pair of Gt Tits who appear to be prospecting for a new home.

I've just counted at least 12 blackbirds in our back garden! They're tucking into the porridge oats, chopped apples and vine fruits I put out.

Help identify and save a plant

Posted: 15/01/2017 at 08:51

One of the marantas, sometimes known as prayer plants. They need moist but well drained compost, high humidity and filtered light. keep in an even temperature - not hot and definitely not cold.  They're also quite hungry and need regular repotting. You'll find lots of info online if you google 'maranta'.

When to plant melons?

Posted: 14/01/2017 at 22:45

We need to know how much space you have indoors in good light to grow your plants on before planting out.  How big will your plants be able to get before planting out?


Melons need a long and warm growing season to get to produce fruit in time to ripen. 


Im not sure that it is possible to get melons to produce and ripen fruit outside in the UK.

BL, everyone who's had this lurgy seems to be suffering from painful ribs now - even my foody friend who lives in Provence is suffering. Hope we're all better soon ((hugs)). 


DD ((hugs)) enjoy the weekend.


 Sweet dreams all.

Where are they going to live? Greenhouse? Hot or cold? Or a traditional hotbed?


where will you be sowing them?
