I've flagged up the multiple posts to the Mods - they're the only ones that can do anything.  Hope we can all reply on one thread, otherwise there's a potential for chaos! 

Flippin' pigeons

Not the weight of these pigeons - I'm fattening them for a pie - they finish up the hedgehogs' leftovers each morning 

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning Pdoc and everyone else 

We were kind to someone .... no need for anyone to apologise for anything, whatever happened after that 

Sorry to hear about dentist - I've been pretty lucky with my teeth (so far - fingers crossed) but son has odd teeth and they keep trying to charge him an arm and a leg to put right stuff they did wrong in his teens!  He really suffers with them

I've bought some of those little windmills on sticks that you get at the seaside and dotted them amongst my brassicas - they seem to be deterring the pigeons at the moment

A lot of singers avoid dairy before a performance as it can 'clog' the respiratory system. 

Squirrels, what to do?

Take care of yourself Clari - stay off dairy - it can promote snot 

White Garden

I know a lovely front garden on the coast which has a posts with holes drilled through, and nautical rope from a ship's chandler threaded through, a bit like this  http://www.ehow.com/how_11404834_build-seaside-rope-fence.html 

It looks really effective. 

Rose id and mystery shoot

Posted: 15/08/2014 at 07:10

We'd need more detailed  photos of the blooms in bud, just opening and open fully, plus time of year when it flowers and other information to identify the variety.

However, the new shoot is just that, a new shoot and is Good News!  When the bush is pruned I would prune the new growth lightly and prune the old growth more severely.  Pruning stimulates growth so the old growth will grow more strongly and the shape of the bush should even up.

It will be happier if some of the planting around it's base is cleared and some slow-acting fertiliser applied in the early spring.
